Well into our second decade of window restrictor innovation, our original vision has remained consistent alongside our untouched core values; to help reduce the number of injuries and fatalities caused by falls from windows throughout the world. Our experienced team remain invigorated and inspired by the increasing amount of people who have adopted our vision and values too. Easy to fit on all types of windows, our proactive restrictor reduces the risk of falls from open windows by only allowing them to be opened to a safe degree. Ideal for residential, leisure, education and healthcare sectors, we thought we'd look at three unexpected buildings that utilise the Jackloc window restrictor within their architectural design:
This week marks Child Safety Week 2018, which aims to raise essential awareness of accidents that children are particularly at risk from and how to proactively prevent them. This years' theme is 'Safe Children: together we've got this!' Are you aware that 44% of all children’s accidents in the home are caused by falls? Followed by fire related accidents and then choking. So, we thought we'd make the most of this theme by compiling 3 modern technologies that will make your family home safer this summer.
All types of windows are a potential danger. It only takes seconds for an accident to happen. Whether in a private residential home with small children or a hotel or hospital, window safety is a serious concern that should be immediately addressed.
Window safety is of universal importance. All windows above ground floor level are a potential accident risk. The Jackloc has been designed to prevent accidents and reduce the risk of window falls. Jacklocs are universal in their application. They can be installed onto any type of window, regardless of style and material. All Jacklocs however, are not made equal. They are available in a range of different configurations to suit your requirements.

Queen’s Award-winning restrictor specialists Jackloc® had a FAB time at the Sylvia Anderson Awards, a special event designed to honour the late co-creator of Thunderbirds and recognise rising authors, actors, filmmakers and musicians.
Heritage buildings are subject to all manner of regulatory requirements. Large public period buildings such as town halls, stately homes, and heritage hotels must meet stringent health and safety regulations to ensure all occupants and visitors are protected. Strict rules also govern private residential heritage homes, usually related to planning permission rights and renovation regulations.
Health and safety is one of the most important considerations for a business owner today. Whether you’re responsible for health and safety in a care home, school, or hotel; protecting your employees and occupants is paramount. Health and safety legislation can be complex. To get you started, here is a quick checklist to make sure that you are compliant and help you focus on what needs to be done first.
