Kids Don't Fly: Schlegel light years ahead

Posted on 20/06/2016

Schlegel have a range of high quality restrictors and chain winders for fall prevention.

The Bristol + range of restrictors and friction stays were developed to comply with all Australian Standards.  They were cycle tested to 25,000 and above.  There are four restrictors that fit the requirements of the BCA National Construction Code that are within opening restrictions of 125mm.  It is safer to have a pair of restrictors so that at no point can a 125mm sphere pass through a window opening.  This is to ensure a child of 5 years or under may not accidently fall through.  A single point control device may twist, bow or flex to widen an area of a window where a child may fit through, however the Amesbury Truth SafeGard for casement windows is only 101.6mm and is tested to withstand 250 newton force.  Schlegel also have a chain winder that has an inbuilt locking system.

Schlegel's fully certified technicians are accredited to conduct openable windows - full barrier tests and force tests for window manufacturers under the Australian Standard AS 4420.2.  Fall prevention tests are conducted in the N.A.T.A. / S.A.A. Schlegel testing laboratory.
