VarioGate – The Only Crash Tested Tailgate Guard

By 28th March 2022 March 30th, 2022 No Comments

VariogateWell, our first ever Crufts has gone by in a whirlwind of activity, with an incredible response to our crash tested dog travel solutions. We’ve been working hard to get your orders out to you, and we’d like to thank everyone that visited our stand and showed an interest in our dog car crates, tail guards, dog guards and accessories.

Our unique VarioGate tailgate guard attracted a lot of interest on the Crufts stand, with many dog owners purchasing the gate, dog guard and divider during or after the event.

Our unique VarioGate is the ONLY crash tested tailgate guard on the market and is ideal for dog owners who:

  • Want to utilise the entire boot space for their dogs
  • Need an option that is versatile and flexible enough to be able to fit into most vehicles
  • Require a fully secure, lockable safe space for their dogs in their vehicle
  • Are unable to fit any of our crates in their vehicle due to the size or shape of their car

Many car models currently have limited boot space, with the angle of the tailgate causing an additional problem when it comes to finding a crate or tailgate guard that will fit. The VarioGate is fully adaptable to fit inside the boot space of most vehicles. The width, height, depth AND angle are completely flexible and can, in most cases, be adjusted to fit your car model when nothing else will, as shown in the following video.

What’s more, as with ALL of our crates, the VarioGate is fully crash tested and will retain its integrity in the event of a rear end collision, protecting your dogs during an impact. It is also fully secure, with robust lock with key, giving you peace of mind that your dog will be safe if anyone breaks in or if you want to open the boot to give your pet fresh air during the summer months (although we never recommend leaving your dog unaccompanied in any vehicle).

The Variogate is usually purchased with our VarioBarrier dog guard and Divider, both also crash tested, that will divide the boot space into two to accommodate two or more dogs, or to keep an area dog-free for other luggage or items. As with all aspects of the system, where the barrier is positioned is fully customisable so if you have a large and small dog, the widths of each compartment can be altered accordingly.
