Company’s Innovative Design Conceals Locking Mechanism for Casement and Tilt n Turn Windows from View
Every year, children fall out of windows in New York City. Some are badly hurt and some die. Window guards effectively keep children from falling out of windows, and with the New York City Health Department’s new Window Falls Protection Program, it is now mandatory that all multi-unit business owners, lessees, agents or other persons who manage or control a multiple dwelling have approved window guards installed in any apartment or building inhabited by a child, ten years or younger
Until now, building owners, contractors and architects have been faced with two unsightly choices when installing or upgrading a residential building’s windows: clunky external locks or worse, cage-like window bars. Thankfully, Long Island-based window manufacturer Thermo-Roll has developed and patented a child-guard window safety lock that is aesthetically pleasing because it’s located inside the frame and invisible to the eye. The lock is built right into Thermo-Roll’s renowned “Tilt & Turn” windows. They’re built for safety, without obstructing the view.
