Every year on the first week in April, a number of institutions and organisations share information and promote awareness for National Window Safety Week. The aim is to educate home owners and organisations on how to ensure windows are being used safely.
Jackloc window restrictors provide a vital safety feature in both public buildings and private residences. The original Jackloc cable window restrictor was specifically designed and engineered to restrict window access and reduce the risk of falls. It restricts window opening to a maximum of 100mm, rendering it improbable for any person or child to fall through. The current product range includes a choice of universal key lockable restrictors, permanently fixed cable restrictors, push and turn restrictors and the new, folding key-lockable window restrictor.
Falls from windows are a major cause of fatal accidents all over the world, especially in urban areas. The majority of these tragedies can unfortunately be avoided by simply taking a few precautionary measures; window restrictors are the ideal solution for avoiding such problems.
The Christmas holiday is a special time of year, the most widely celebrated event on the Christian calendar, bringing friends and family together to enjoy the Christmas spirit amidst festive food, decorations, gifts and parties.
However, injuries increase during this period, it is therefore important to take special precautions during the festive season, to avoid any unnecessary accidents.
How Important Is It To Have Window Restrictors?
Windows that are left open, especially those above the ground floor can be fatal. Even more so for young, unsupervised children as well as vulnerable adults. Window restrictors are widely used in hospitals, care homes, nurseries and educational establishments to provide much needed ventilation with security.
