Hauck Autoclose 'n' Stop review

Product alert

The sample of this stair gate failed a Which? test that forms part of the EU standard for safety gates that checks whether the auto-close function operates as it should. 

Hauck told us:

‘Hauck UK Ltd do not accept the findings of Which? that their Autoclose’n Stop safety barrier is unsafe when fitted and used correctly.  

We have provided evidence of testing in November 2019 where it can be shown that the product passes the required standard when fitted correctly.’
