Child Safety Locks - Ambassador Windows

Because of changes to building regulations all bedroom windows must now have hinges that allow the window to open to 90° wide and, at the same time, prohibit locking handles. This is so that you have a large opening that is quick and easy to open in the event of a fire. But how then do you protect young children from the everyday risk of falling from an upstairs window?

The answer is to fit a child safety restrictor or child lock to the window.

We have a range of restrictors and child safety locks to make your windows safer for your children and still comply with fire regulations.  All of our products allow the window to open a safe distance for fresh air, but prevent it opening wide enough that a child could fall out.  Spring loaded hook restrictors will work with most aluminium, timber and PVC windows.  They are simple, effective and robust.  They also have the advantage of being concealed when the window is closed.  Other child safety locks use a tether or similar surface mounted device to prevent the window opening beyond a set safe distance.

Ambassador Windows will be happy to advise you as to what child safety device is best suited to your windows. Whatever Child Safety Lock or Child Safety Restrictor that you choose, Ambassador Windows will supply and fit it for you.

Child safety restrictors are simple and inexpensive.  We strongly recommend that all upstairs windows that are accessible to children are protected by some form of child safety device.  Although you can buy child safety restrictors in many DIY stores, it is better to have a device fitted by a professional.  This way you can be sure that you are getting the correct device and that it will be fitted properly.  Every year children are badly injured and even killed because they have fallen from a window.  Don’t wait, don’t put it off. Most of the child safety locks and child window safety restrictors that Ambassador Windows fit cost from as little as €25 supplied and fitted.  There are also discounts where multiple parts are fitted.
