Cardinal Gates has been dedicated to making homes safer since 1993. Over the years the company has expanded from the original Hearth Guard to a full line of gates for children and pets. We strongly believe our gates are the best on the market in terms of safety, ease of installation, attractiveness and durability. Cardinal Gates produce the only aluminum gates on the market, which are light weight and able to weather the elements for exterior use. Many of their gates are constructed entirely of metal-no plastic parts-for additional strength and durability. These products are carefully inspected by hand in Newnan, Georgia. This ensures that each gate meets exceptionally high standards before shipping them out. Additionally, all Cardinal Gates are rigorously tested to earn the seal of certification by the Juvenile Protection Manufacturers Association.
