SAFETY GATE LATCH IS WORLD’S FIRST WITH INTEGRATED ALARM
The Australian designed and made MagnaLatch child safety gate latch from D&D Technologies is a world-beater, with millions sold worldwide. Now the company has gone one step further by developing the MagnaLatch Alert, the first safety latch with an integrated alarm.
The MagnaLatch Alert provides two levels of electronic warnings: bright, flashing LED lights, and an audible alarm that sounds if a gate is opened or left unlatched for more than 15 seconds. So users can see at a glance, and hear from a distance, if the gate is not secured.
Two versions are available: a Top Pull model for child safety applications, and a shorter Vertical Pull model that offers protection on pet security and general-purpose gates around the home and garden. A single beep on opening warns of visitors or intruders.
D&D Technologies reckons the MagnaLatch Alert is the ultimate safety gate latch, and the ideal alert device for when you can’t turn your back for a second.
