Ensure Safety and Comfort with Window Restrictors from Richmond Home Improvement

Windows are not only an integral part of our homes but also contribute to the aesthetics and functionality of the space. When it comes to safety and security, it is important to strike a balance between allowing fresh air and ensuring the well-being of your loved ones. This is where window restrictors come into play. Richmond Home Improvement offers a range of window restrictors designed to provide ventilation while keeping your home secure. Let's explore the benefits and applications of these essential safety features.

Maintaining Safety Regulations for Double Glazed Windows

In accordance with building regulations, window restrictors are required to adhere to a maximum clear opening size to prevent accidents and ensure the safety of occupants. Richmond Home Improvement takes these regulations seriously and goes the extra mile to prioritise your safety. While the set maximum clear opening is 100mm, we prefer to set our restrictors at a maximum of 90mm. This not only adheres to the regulations but also adds an additional layer of protection, particularly for small children who may inadvertently get their heads stuck in larger openings.

Visible and Reliable Alternatives to Friction Stay Hinges

While friction stay hinges with restrictors are available, at Richmond Home Improvement we believe that visible window restrictors offer a much more effective solution. We understand that accidents can happen, and sometimes windows with friction stay hinges can be forced open by individuals who aren’t aware they are in place. In such cases, relying solely on hidden restrictors can lead to damaged hinges, compromising the security of your double glazed windows. Therefore, we offer alternative solutions that provide both functionality and peace of mind.

Applications of Window Restrictors

Window restrictors are especially crucial in high-level locations or areas where there is an increased risk of falls. We recommend the installation of restrictors in flats and communal windows found in blocks of flats, such as stairways and landings. These areas often require enhanced safety measures, and window restrictors can help prevent accidents and provide residents with peace of mind.
