Fusion Gates Receives JPMA Certification for Safety
Posted on October 17 2018
We are proud to announce our Fusion Gates are now certified with the Juvenile Products Manufacturing Association (JPMA). From the beginning, we set out to build a baby and dog gate that fused together security and serenity. We wanted to create a gate that puts parents at ease, not on guard. Our JPMA Certification helps us tell the world the Fusion Gate is not just a pretty baby & dog gate...it's a super safe gate that will protect your loved ones while adding harmony to your home.
Who is JPMA and what exactly is JPMA Certification?
The JPMA is a national trade association of 300+ companies that make and/or import baby products. JPMA's mission is to make sure every baby product sold is safe and the companies making those products are committed to that safety...year after year. And let me tell you they do NOT make it easy. However, as a mom I am relieved that there are organizations like JPMA that care about my children’s safety and as a business owner I respect and appreciate the clear rules, standards and strict processes immensely.
Certification follows strict standards set by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM
) International and goes even further, ensuring compliance with state by state child safety laws and federal rules set by the Consumer Products Safety Commission
). Testing is done by a reputable third party testing company. In our case it was Intertek
out of Chicago.
Performance requirements are vigorously tested including push out strength, proper latching and locking, spacing adherence. The test also looks for use of hazardous materials like lead and makes sure all warning labels and instructions are clear and legible. In addition to JPMA Certification, the Fusion Gates takes safety a step further. We have the lowest threshold on the market to keep babies and others from tripping.

We've also added a cleverly hidden lock system that's reversible as well as climb-resistant door panels with one of the strongest push-out rates for pressure mounted gates in the industry. Lastly we offer customer consults to assist our customers with challenging spaces that traditional gates cannot accommodate.
If you have questions regarding the safety and compatibility of our gates in your home or office, please give us a call and we'd be happy to give you more details on our certification and commitment to safety. 618 655 0031.
