From a safety point of view, our Fire guards are designed primarily to keep sparks from being ejected from the fire. For child safety best to have a hook kit fitted to assist in preventing the guard from being moved or knocked out of the way. We do sell hook kits for our UK range of fire Guards such as the Noble range. Alternatively for child safety, buy a dedicated Nursery Guard which is designed to keep children at least 18” from a fire and includes a fixing kit. We would also recommend that a simple Spark Guard is used along with the nursery guard to prevent sparks causing damage or harm.
