CARDINAL GATES NAMED EXCLUSIVE U.S. CHILD SAFETY DISTRIBUTOR FOR GUARDIAN PRODUCTS
Innovative New Locks Ideal for Childproofing and Home Safety
“We’re excited about the new partnership,” explains Craig Heiser, President of Cardinal Gates, Inc.
Canadian firm Meranto Technology, Inc. recently named Cardinal Gates as the exclusive U.S. distributor for
their products in the child safety market. Meranto manufactures a unique assortment of locks for
residential doors and windows. Originally designed with home security in mind, these products are
perfectly suited for the babyproofing/childproofing industry.
Cardinal Gates will market and sell the Door Guardian, a compact yet substantial metal lock 12 times
stronger than a deadbolt; the Patio Door Guardian, an attractive multi-functional lock for sliding glass doors
and balcony sliders; and the Window Guardian, a cleverly-designed window lock featuring a removable pin
key. In 2006, the Door Guardian and Patio Door Guardian were recognized as two of “the best new child
safety products” by the National Safe Kids Campaign in Washington, D.C.
Each lock has been rigorously tested in Canada by Ortech, a scientific organization recognized worldwide.
Ortech concluded that the Door Guardian would be an effective deterrent to forced entry through exterior
“Adding the Guardian locks to Cardinal Gates will give our customers an excellent line of high quality door
and window locks,” Heiser notes. “Meranto Technology’s focus on security dovetails nicely with our child
safety products.” Heiser will demonstrate the new Guardian line at the International Association for Child
Safety (IAFCS) annual conference on November 6 and 7, in Phoenix, Arizona. Effective November 1,
Guardian locks may be purchased through Cardinal Gates.
Cardinal Gates is dedicated to making homes safer. Since its founding in 1993, the company expanded
from the original Hearth Guard to a full line of safety gates and products for children and pets. Products
are carefully inspected by hand in Newnan, Georgia, ensuring exceptionally high standards. All Cardinal
Gates are rigorously tested to earn the seal of certification by the Juvenile Products Manufacturers
