Baby Proofing the Balcony

Though we didn't build anything here, this DIY deserved a post merely for the functionality it offered and the ease with which baby proofing can be achieved. We thought some might even benefit from it.

We have seen this in couple of places in the neighborhood and so when we had to baby proof my bro's balcony, we knew exactly what to get and where to find it. Here are some pointers:
  • The mesh is made of fiber (So we were told) and is available in any local hardware store in large rolls
  • It is priced per square feet and so the balcony railing measurements are needed for the purchase
  • Though it comes with a reasonable price, you may want to check with couple of hardware stores to get the best pricing
  • The mesh can be secured to the balcony railings using plastic tags. No fancy tools required.
  • It can also be used to cover gaps between staircase railings inside your apartment or in the common area
  • And it takes less than one man hour to fix it
  • Baby, child proofing the balcony

The fiber mesh is a good alternative to rusty iron / steel meshes or the clumsy nylon ropes tied between railings. It has a plastic feel to it, is flexible and quite strong, can be trimmed using a pair of scissors, and comes with very reasonable pricing. So, if you have wide railings, here's an easy cost-effective way to cover the gaps.
