    Default Baby gate but wider...

    I'm trying to find something that will block a space between our kitchen and loungeroom - it's about 160cm wide so too wide for a baby gate.

    Aldi had something a few weeks ago and now I'm wishing I'd just gotten it then.

    Looking for any ideas that other people have used to block off a space around this size please....

    TIA

    If you google baby gates you should find a company that specialise in all sorts of baby barriers. I found them a while back but can't remember who they are called. They sold screens wider than baby gates, also you can get extensions for baby gates so you could make the baby gate wide enough with the extentions I would think.

    I got one at target a few years ago. It can be a baby gate or play pen. To make it a baby gate you just use as many of the sections as you need. It isn't pressure mounted though so you will need to screw the brackets that it comes with into the wall/ door jam. It was Lindam brand if memory serves.

    It is this one - http://www.bigw.com.au/baby/safety/g...ecure-play-pen

    Dreambaby have baby gates and all different length extensions to add on to a maximum of just under 3 metres. Highly recommend.

    There's this one at Nanny-Annie - http://www.nanny-annie-baby-furnitur...nsion_Gate.php

    We bought 2 gates from them (not this one) and have been very happy. I got their super wide gate/wall thing (but that's a lot wider than you need) and I'm very happy with that - it turns our lounge/dining room into 2 separate rooms which is SO useful.

    This is perfect - the exact dimensions. Thanks! I have placed the order.
