The Stair Barrier’s founder Janelle Fitzpatrick needed a way to keep her own dogs and baby off of her home’s volute/curved banister stairs and found herself faced with a dilemma: safe or attractive. Not wanting to settle for one or the other, she invented a solution that looked as good as it worked. After years of using her prototypes in her home, Janelle took the leap and launched her company in 2015. What began as one mom’s solution is now an American Made business, with all materials sourced and manufactured in the U.S.A. Dubbed the “tricky-stairs-gate” by Parents Magazine, The Stair Barrier offers a wide selection of fabric gates.
