Have you been considering installing window guards in your home? It makes sense to protect your family and window guards are a highly effective device in that regard. Small children, especially, are at risk of falling out of windows. If you want to reduce the chances of your child suffering serious injury – or worse – window guards provide an added level of safety.
CPSC Window Screen Safety
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) produced statistics that estimate how many children are taken to the ER for treatment after falling from a window. Shockingly, more than 4,000 children are injured every year in these often tragic accidents. The statistics sadly include around 120 children who have died as a result of falling from a window since 1990. Children under the age of five accounts for most of the accidents recorded by the CPSC.
These statistics prompted the CPSC to announce additional safety standards related to window guards. The primary goal of these standards is protecting children from a fall and any resulting injuries or fatalities. An important element of these new window guards is ensuring they do not hinder escape in the case of a house fire.
Window Guard Installation
Many homeowners worry that installing window guards will be a laborious task that will disrupt family life. The truth of the matter is, Steel Shield Security Doors can quickly and effectively install window guards to help protect your little ones. Our window guards are simply attached to the window frame. We ensure they are securely in place so children cannot easily dislodge the window guard and fall from the window.
The bars in window guards are less than 4 inches apart, which prevents children from finding their way between the bars and getting stuck or falling out the window. A large amount of research has gone into ensuring window guards provide optimum safety for you and your family.
