Safest Replacement Window Features for Homes With Children
If you have small children in your home, or are considering starting a family, ensuring window safety should be at the top of your to-do list.
Falls from windows, are much more common than most people realize. According to the Safe Kids Worldwide2015 Report more than 3,300 children a year are injured seriously enough to go to the hospital from falling out of a window. Even more tragically, about 8 kids under age 5 die each year due to falling out a window.
In many cases these falls are the result of older windows and screens that may not lock or operate properly. Checking every window in your home – and repairing or replacing them as necessary – is essential for any parent, grandparent or caregiver who ever has kids in their house.
• Auto-lock Replacement Windows for Safety
Many older windows have lock mechanisms that no longer work – or that never worked that well to begin with. Additionally, human-error can lead to forgetting to lock windows and/or not completely engaging the lock mechanism.
We offer replacement windows with state-of-the-art “Auto Lock” for secure, effortless, automatic locking. Every time that the window is closed, the latch will engage automatically when closing window.
In addition to preventing falls, securely locked windows also prevent curious toddlers from climbing out of first floor windows. And state-of-the-art auto locking mechanisms also prevent burglaries and dangerous intruders.
• Double Hung Replacement Windows for Child Safety
Double-hung windows are another interesting and functional option for homes with children. Double-hung windows allows you to open the top sash of the windows (well above children’s reach) for ventilation on an upper floor, while keeping the bottom sash closed
• Replacement Window Screens for Child Safety
Another falling hazard for children is old, loose window screens. Should a rambunctious or curios child put their weight on an unsecure screen they can easily dislodge the screening and topple out of the window.
While children should never be allowed to lean on any screen, the screens included in our new replacement windows are built to stay as firmly in place as possible when accidentally bumped.
Our patented corner pulls allow for the screen to stay in place, yet still be easily removed for cleaning by an adult.
