About us

Matters of the Heart since 1947

Becoming a parent is an amazing time in your life. But it is also a time filled with worries about how to care for your little one in the best possible way. One of our top priorities is to help you look after your child in the safest and most practical way possible.

We at BabyDan have that same natural curiosity that children also possess - we are curious about how we can create the safest and most practical daily life for you and your child, so that you will have less worries and just be able to enjoy spending time with your child. That is why our safety gates, which we developed and manufacture ourselves, are the world's safest gates. And we are very proud of that.

We also develop and manufacture small home safety products for the home. Additionally, we sell furniture, textiles and accessories for children's rooms and all sorts of baby products. In short: we are one of the world's leaders in safety products for children aged 0-3 years. And having spent more than 75 years in this industry, we feel confident to call ourselves one of the foremost experts in child safety.

We make the world's safest gates

We go the extra mile for children's safety

We want to sing the praises of parents who protect their children and we want to go the extra mile for them - because that is what we do best. We are only satisfied once we have tested far above the safety standards and far beyond what is required by the law.

We do not stop once our products have reached the safety standard. If the requirement states that a safety gate must be able to withstand a pressure of 100, we test the gate with a significantly higher pressure. This at the very core of who we are, because the safety of children is of paramount importance for us in BabyDan. And we keep on testing and developing until we find the safest and best solution.

We hold ourselves accountable for your child's safety today and in the future

For us, children's safety goes beyond protecting them from bumps and scrapes. We believe that safety and sustainability are inextricably linked and that is the reason why we are at the forefront when it comes to sustainable and safe products.

Our safety gates are manufactured with materials that are so safe that your child can suck on the gate without being exposed to any harmful substances - and of course it stops your little one falling down the stairs and getting bruised too.

Our smaller home safety items are bio-based and the packaging is 100% biodegradable, so that neither your child nor nature suffers when using our cupboard locks or corner cushions to secure against tiny, pinched fingers and bumps on little heads.

The products we manufacture ourselves contain no harmful substances, while simultaneously ensuring that our children are not harmed. All of our wooden safety gates are FSC certified, which guarantees that we only use sustainable wood from sustainable forests. BabyDan consequently supports sustainability both directly and indirectly. And that is important to us, especially when it comes to our children.

BabyDan & sustainability

We have more than 75 years of accumulated knowledge about children's safety

BabyDan has just over 110 employees at offices and manufacturing facilities in Låsby, Skovlund and England. If you ask us, we would say that we have the absolute best employees and they are loyal and extremely hardworking.

We have employees who have celebrated their 20th, 30th and 40th anniversary with BabyDan, and that speaks volumes - we "BabyDan’ers" care passionately about ensuring that you can have the best safety products for your child. It is a cause very near and dear to our hearts.

Based on the core values of safety, sustainability, ingenuity and accountability, BabyDan is synonymous with the highest quality and safety standards

Danish design produced in Denmark

In order for BabyDan to expand its own manufacturing capabilities on Danish soil, the plastic company BD Plast was founded in 2015 as part of the BabyDan group. This meant that BabyDan became more self-sufficient in the production of plastic parts for BabyDan's safety gates and smaller home safety products.

BD Plast is a plastic factory with modern and robotically-controlled production machines manufacturing plastic components and finished safety products.

BD Plast is also where BabyDan's biodegradable safety locks and corner cushions are manufactured. Manufacturing the majority of our products ourselves in Denmark, allows us a greater degree of assurance that the production is of the highest possible quality and that it is considerate of the environment to the greatest possible degree.
