34"H Expandable Free-standing Steel Mesh Pet Gate is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 941.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Pet Gate Wonderful product, high quality and stylish. Keeps my pets off the carpet and the bronze finish blends nicely with the decor. This is the fourth gate of this type I have bought from Frontgate for myself and family members; they are great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Gate! After years of having our dachshunds pull down, chew up, and jump over traditional dog gates, we decided to try to find something more permanent and sturdy, but still attractive. We looked into having a custom gate built, but found it to be pretty pricey. However, most metal gates we found were in widths that would not even come close to our doorway's measurements. Our doorframe is 40.75" across, so we were initially sad to think that this gate would be barely too small, but we decided to try to find a solution, and we're so glad we took a chance! This gate is even more beautiful in person and very solid - the website pictures truly don't do it justice. We ended up building 2 columns for each side out of framing studs, trimmed them out to fill the gaps and still be a sturdy brace to support the gate, and painted them to match the other trim in our home. In the end, they make the gate look even more interesting, and we couldn't be happier! Our only regret is that this site doesn't have an option to share photos.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Gate!!!!!!!!!!!! This was the best decision I ever made. I run a small dog business out of my home. I have been through countless wooden gates that cost just as much if not more and they only lastest for short periods of time with the doggie crew that I can have in my care at one time. Sturdy very attractive looking and built to last. The walk through door on the gate was exactly what I was looking for in a pet gate plus durability to last. If I could wish for one thing is that they made one just as tall with a walk through door that would fit a 36" opening like into a small hallway or bedroom doorway to block off. They offer something similar but not with the door on it. This one I have is for about a 54 to 58" opening and works great! You will not regret the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Real quality that exceeds expectations We bought two of these pet gates - the single door size and the bigger one for a double French door. Both are finely crafted with a very nice bronze finish. The decorative detail is impressive. They really look handcrafted. They were very easy to assemble and adjust to fit. They are sturdy. It's not often that a product exceeds expectations so nicely. We are proud to have these gates in our house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from pet gate is functional yet elegant My wife thought our 20 month Golden could not be fully trusted to keep out of mischief when we were out for a few hours. The crate seemed to be limiting. We wanted to sequester her to half of our foyer which we did with this beautiful gate. The opening is 63 inches. The gate is expandable to 70 inches. I was not looking for anything that would be permanently mounted to the wall and this free standing gate was the perfect solution. It is functional and cannot be toppled over by a hyper golden who weighs 65 pounds. The gate has a swinging door as well. The quality is better than you would expect for the price. I highly recommend it. The catalog photo is not a perfect representation of the color . I would say it is more black with bronze highlights than a bronze color overall. I would have preferred a more bronze color but none the less very happy with its decorative qualities in our home.

4 ft opening

We have a 4ft opening from our kitchen into our living room that we would like to install a gate that would keep two VERY strong 25 lbs dogs out of the living room. Would this gate be able to fit into that opening?

The gate will fit the opening. My 75 lbs dog did not try to go through the gate. Kept out two strong toddlers though.

What do the footings look like and how are hardwood floors protected from being scratched by the footings?

Asked by: gardencats2
The footings are very attractive and mine are on my hardwood floors and do not scratch your floors. The gates are barely 30 pounds and can be lifted even by myself being disabled. The best thing I can advise is to lift them, not drag if your concerned about your floors, but my floors have not one mark from my gates. You may ant to apply a felt stick on pad just for GP if that eases your mind. The gates match my dining room so beautifully, that I no longer even remove them like the older ugly baby gates I had because they are so decorative and people have noticed them as they enter my home and fall in love and want them for themselves.

Are the side panels included in the max. 40"/70" widths or can I use the smaller version to close a 5' opening if I leave the side panels at an angle?

How long is the smaller version with the two side panels straight with the center panels? Or, when the gate is placed flat on the floor, how long is the entire gate (panels flat as well)? Is that how you measure the maximum widths (small 40" and large 70") with the side panels included in the measurement?

I'm not 100% sure of this, but I think you could attach an extra panel due to the adjustable nature of the gate. I don't know if extending too much might make it flimsy. Save your receipt just in case it doesn't work.

Is there a way to secure the small cat door so that it remains open?

Or can the small door be left off completely when assembling?
Asked by: Jakeblues
I do not think that the cat door could be removed without cutting through its hinges using heavy duty power tool as is arrives fully assembled and the hinges of the cat are soldiered together. Removing the cat gate in this fashion would leave sharp edges where the hinges were cut. This would leave the potential for severe (even fatal) injuries to your cat or dog (henceforth referee to as a "cat gate" as I am using the smaller gate for my cat). It may be possible that an iron file would be capable of sanding the sharp edges down. Doing so would invariably leave markings on the area. I expect that this would also be very time consuming and would be difficult to do. We opted to keep the cat door open rather than attempt to remove it.When we installed the gate in our doorframe, we found that that the cat gate would swing partially closed when we opened and close the gate as well as after our tiny (5 lb) cat would walk through it per her tail bumping into the frame of the cat door. The cat door would only close partially such that there was only an inch or two between the two doors. Granted, our cat is older so I believe that the smaller opening confused her, it also made it impossible for her to run though it quickly when our 7momthold (50lb) Goldendoodle would chase her. If you do not have a dog that would be chasing your cat and he or she can be taught to bat the smaller opening enough to go through the cat gate thsi may not be an issue for you. However, if you goal is to keep the cat gate fully open then the partial closure would be a problem as is was for us. To remedy this issue, we placed a black ziptie between the small cat door and main gate to keep the cat door open. The cat door does not sit exactly parallel to the main gateway but the difference is small and close enough to parallel that the difference is not obvious unless you are looking for the slight angle departure. Eyeballing it, I would say that the angle of departure from the main portion of the gate is approximately 15%. The departure from parallel is due to the knob on the cat door being a tiny bit larger than the the hinge on the cat door. When the ziptie is attached inbetween the back of the cat door knob and the decorative curl accents it is not visible from either side unless you are aware of and specifically looking for it. We positioned the end of the ziptie in between the cat door and the main portion of the gate.and then trimmed the the excess length. We used the ziptie rather than a thick string because we felt it was more secure (less apt to slip or beak).and we could obtain a more snug fit using the ziptie. When this occurred, our cat would just stand outside the door as if it were fully closed rather than paw it open. .

We purchased the gate for a 71" opening and although it's technically 68-1/2" with the extension in, it seems to work fine. Of course, our dogs are giant breed. If you have extremely small dogs, they may be able to "squeeze" through the small space on the side.

Cat Door Operation

I need a gate to keep my dogs out of a portion of the house so that the cats can have peace and a full food bowl! This gate seems perfect except it appears the cat door only swings one way and auto closes. That's awesome except that once the cat is on the other side, what do they do? Hop the fence? If that is the case, I may as well get a regular old gate. I just don't understand the purpose of the cat door if they can only use it one way. Thank you.

What gauge is the wire mesh?

I have two stafford shires and need to know the gauge of the wire mesh.
Asked by: KimT
It's hard steel mesh - not just screen material. I don't know the thickness of the steel wire itself, but the holes in it are just under 1/4 inch square, so there's not really any way to bite it or get a good grab on it. Our dachshunds are total escape artists, and this is the first gate that has ever held up to them. Good luck!

Does the homeowner have to physically open the cat door?

I understand that the cat door has a latch. Does the homeowner have to unlatch the cat door to allow a cat to go in or out? Most healthy adult cats can easily jump over a 42" barrier, but if you chose to include cat gate, shouldn't the cat be able to "let himself out?" (In my opinion, a cat door should open when the cat pushes on it from either direction, because the gate itself is not a barrier to most cats; even a kitten should be able to climb over using the mesh)
