The child safety in the living room is essential for a safe home. We give you the keys to a secure room. While children are young, try to arrange the room so that neither they nor valuables suffer any damage. You will have to pay special attention to carpets and curtains fireplaces or heaters, electronic material and plugs or different surfaces and furniture we have in the classroom. If you have a balcony, covering spaces with wooden bars and make sure the rail is high enough to prevent the child jump. Install reinforced doors patios and laundry rooms if they are less than 80 cm from the ground glass.
