Each year, many children are injured falling from an open window. Naturally curious, children love to explore and a window is a natural place for them to gravitate to. Keeping all windows closed and locked is a solution though not a particularly satisfying one, especially during the warmer months when it is pleasant to have windows open to allow fresh air to enter.
A better solution is the installation of Jackloc Universal Window and Door Restrictors, currently one of our featured products on the website. The incredibly versatile restrictors are suitable for any kind of opening window or door, no matter what materials it is made from. Key-lockable, the restrictors are supplied with a standard 200mm length cable, though different sizes are available to suit your particular requirements.
Many customers have also used Jackloc to prevent the escape of a pet. As the cable is available in different sizes, it is easily possible to keep a dog or cat in or out of a particular area. As naturally curious as children, pets often like to explore and climb so open windows represent a serious hazard. Another use has been for home security; a door or window can be left open even if there is nobody in the room.
Many hotels now use the Jackloc as standard. Well-known names such as Travelodge, Thistle Hotels and the London Ritz all have Jackloc restrictors fitted to their windows, eradicating the danger of a falling accident. As the Jackloc meets and exceeds BS6375 part II test to over 1400 Newtons, it is currently the best window and door restrictor available to purchase today.
