Protecting loved ones for over 25 years

April 29th, 2016 Huntington Beach, CA

D&D Technologies invented the first magnetic pool safety gate latch, in Sydney, Australia. For over 25 years D&D has sold millions of pool safety gate latches and self-closing hinges in order to protect children and families around the globe. May is National Drowning Safety Month, and a reminder that pool owners must protect their loved ones from accidental drownings.

Isolation and perimeter fencing are the recommended solution for pool and spa protection—this information is being spread around the country each day by the National Drowning Prevention Alliance (NDPA) and other supporting members including Consumer Products Safety Council. D&D Technologies is a proud founding member and active sponsor of the NDPA.

“We are on a mission to save lives.” says Jim Paterson, VP of Sales and Marketing, North & South America, D&D Technologies “In the U.S., drowning is the number one cause of unintentional death for children between ages 1-4 and the second leading cause for those between the ages of 5-14. All the innovation, technology and passion that we put into manufacturing safety gate products is done with one intention in mind: protect children, protect loved ones”.

D&D revolutionized the world by the invention of the world’s first magnetic gate latch. David Doyle, founding father of D&D Technologies discovered neodymium magnets never lose power. He engineered and patented the world’s first magnetic safety latch. Since then, MagnaLatch® has become the number one child and pet safety pool gate latch in the world. Combined with TruClose® self-closing hinges, made out of engineering polymer, D&D offers one of the most reliable solutions for pool and spa gates.

Remember, drowning is preventable. Take time to get involved during May National water safety Month. Join the movement. Take the Pledge.

THE PLEDGE: Every child deserves to be protected. I pledge to spread the message that Simple Steps Save Lives to my family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers. I will let people know that adding as many proven water safety steps as possible is the best way to assure a safe and fun experience at pools and spas, because you can never know which one might save a child's life — until it does. —

MagnaLatch® ALERT, the world’s first and only integrated safety gate latch and alarm

MagnaLatch® ALERT, the world’s first and only integrated safety gate latch and alarm

Posted in: Articles,Press Coverage,News,Product LaunchesThe easiest and most reliable solution to protect the entire family.

 

Following the success of MagnaLatch®, the original and still the best-selling safety gate latch in the market, D&D Technologies introduces the award-winning MagnaLatch® ALERT, the world’s first and only combined gate latch and electronic alarm system. Now featuring dual electronic warnings: bright, flashing LED lights, and an audible alarm, the MagnaLatch ALERT models allow you to hear and see from a distance when a gate is left opened or unlatched – offering the ultimate security and protection for gates around swimming pools, homes, childcare centers, schools and wherever safety is critical.

 

“Gates control access to properties and when securely closed provide a barrier to help protect loved ones and possessions.” Says Jim Paterson, Senior VP of Sales and Marketing, D&D Technologies  “If a gate is left open or not securely latched,  a consumer may  have an open door to danger.  D&D Technologies invented MagnaLatch ALERT to provide consumers with a clear warning when a gate is not completely closed and latched, providing it’s intended level of security.  Most gates are not visible from inside a home.  We designed ALERT with both audio and visual warnings to help alert consumers to a potential risk, regardless of where they are on their property”.

If the latch is opened and/or gate is left unlatched, the new visual alarm gives a visual warning with flashing LED lights, while the audible alarm beeps and turns into a full alarm after 15 seconds. In addition to these new features, MagnaLatch ALERT offers:

- NEW Re-keyable security lock: The 6-pin lock cylinder can be rekeyed, by a locksmith, to match other locks around the home.
- NEW Visible Lock Indicator: Shows you at a glance whether MagnaLatch ALERT is locked or unlocked.
- NEW Disarm Feature: The touch-sensor disarm feature allows an adult to temporarily disarm the ALERT for up to 15 minutes. Feature not to be used on pool or safety gates.
- NEW Safe, ergonomic lift knob: With its new design, the lift knob is now more conveniently shaped and child resistant than ever.

MagnaLatch ALERT® is available in two models: the Top Pull and the Vertical Pull. Both gate latches are made from industrial strength polymers, aluminum and stainless steel that eliminate rusting and jamming, making it the perfect choice for any outdoor space where safety is a must. They can be easily installed in minutes without the need for special tools, screws or wiring. While the MagnaLatch ALERT Top Pull model is ideal for all child safety or pool applications, the shorter Vertical Pull model offers protection on pet security and general-purpose gates around the home and garden.

MagnaLatch® has set the standard for child safety gate latches for more than 25 years. Millions of families worldwide have trusted MagnaLatch® with their children’s safety. MagnaLatch ALERT is now available online at Amazon store. For more information on D&D products, please visit www.ddtechglobal.com.

5 easy ways to make your outdoor space the best on the block

5 easy ways to make your outdoor space the best on the block

Posted in: Articles,Tips & Tricks5 easy ways to make your outdoor space the best on the block

When the calendar flips to the summer months, all you can think about is getting outside and soaking up the sun. But when you look out the window into your yard, what do you see? Is it an inviting space that encourages you to get out and enjoy the fresh air? Or could it use a bit of sprucing up?

This is an opportunity to upgrade and get the most out of your outdoor space. With only a few features, you can create a leisurely outdoor space fit for relaxation and escape from everyday stressors. These backyard additions can bring both functionality and beauty to your home’s exterior.

Pumped up curb appeal. Curb appeal can make or break the appearance of your home. Step out to the street and take a look at your home from a passerby’s view. What stands out? Consider adding a fresh coat of paint to your siding or a bright shade to your front door. Plant a few colorful flowers in window boxes or pots for some eye-catching detail.

Outdoor lighting. Another way to add curb appeal is to illuminate your home with outdoor lighting. Strategically place lights throughout your yard to add a welcoming theme to the look of your home. Outdoor lighting also provides a number of safety features. Not only does it deter burglars and vandals, but it makes your pathways and sidewalks easier to see so you can have added peace of mind.

Cozy fire pit. Whether it’s built-in or portable, a fire pit can work wonders on a backyard’s ambiance. Imagine warming up during those breezy summer nights around the fire with your family and friends. This simple addition instantly transforms your patio into an inviting gathering space and allows you to entertain long after the sun goes down. You can already taste the roasted marshmallows and hot dogs.

Updated gates. Fences and gates are great for keeping kids and pets out of places they shouldn’t be like pools, gardens and other potentially dangerous areas. When updating your outdoor space this summer, a safer gate latch is a necessity. The MagnaLatch Alert by D&D Technologies is the only gate latch in the world with an integrated alarm system, providing both audible and visual security features. Keep your gated areas safe with an alarm that sounds if someone is getting into an area they shouldn’t. You can install a latch gate in minutes without the need for special tools, screws or wiring. It’s essentially two projects in one: a reliable gate latch and alarm.

Outdoor kitchen. Summer is the perfect time to enjoy meals outside with your family and friends. Why not take the cooking outside too? This way, you’ll be able to socialize with your guests while preparing a delicious barbecue meal for them. An outdoor kitchen can be as simple or as complex as you’d like. Start with a grill and work your way into outdoor refrigerators, sinks and serving areas.

Summertime shouldn’t be spent sitting indoors. Studies show that spending time in the sun increases your vitamin D levels, which helps fight certain conditions like depression, osteoporosis and heart attacks, according to Harvard Health Publications. Make your outdoor time more enjoyable this summer with these outdoor living additions.
