HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., April 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- 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. —
