The Fusion Gate…the pet gate that becomes a portal to home tranquility, beauty and design.

Engineered for home safety and designed as a work of art, the Fusion Gate moves the pet gate category from vertical bars and barricades to stylish architectural boundaries by fusing together high-performance with personal style.

The challenge for product designer, Donna Potter was to meet the market’s need for a highly dependable and stylish dog safety gate to control paw traffic while eliminating the angst of having to give up aesthetic beauty for a jail-like structure that translates “Keep out.” Additionally, Donna wanted to create a value rich product that would satisfy today’s price savvy consumer looking for products with multiple uses and long lasting relevance.

The designer envisioned a noticeably attractive boundary with translucent features that would capture natural light while safely revealing the presence of our pets at the gate door. Vertical bars were replaced with a patented interchangeable art screen system featuring a continuous collection of original art screens. Accessed through the top of the pet gate door and encased between impact resistant polycarbonate panels, the artwork could easily be interchanged to compliment existing style, change with emerging trends and even add to seasonal décor.
With the art screen system in place, the team’s mechanical engineer, David Kraenzle, worked to create a highly intuitive structure framed in durable lightweight aluminum with unique features that include:

- A one-of-a-kind finial latch system that opens with the lift of a finger.
- The lowest threshold of all pressure-mounted/hardware-mounted gates ensuring a safer pass-thru for both pets and their owners
- A reversible no-nonsense locking system that is unreachable for pets

The Fusion Gate offers customers a premium pet product that actually celebrates the spaces we share with our beloved pets. When other gates say “Beware” the Fusion Gates says, “Welcome to my Home.”
