Child Safety Features in uPVC Windows

Child Safety Features to Consider for uPVC Windows and Doors

At Aparna Venster, we design our uPVC windows and doors with child safety features. To prevent harm, window restrictors use a hook mechanism to limit the window’s opening distance. Installing uPVC windows with safety locks is a great way to keep unwanted guests out and accidents at bay. Thanks to see-through doors, parents can keep tabs on their children even when they are not physically there.

Choose uPVC windows with interior glazing, child safety restrictors, tempered glass, and strong frames. These windows have several locking points. With these uPVC window safety features, you can protect your family and make your property seem more cohesive. Unplasticized polyvinyl chloride (uPVC) windows reduce noise, are energy-efficient, and are perfect for houses with children or pets. Adding these conveniences to your home might make your family feel safer.

Frequently Asked Questions

How to keep windows safe for children?

To ensure children’s safety, install window guards and stops, move furniture away from windows, monitor children when they open, and always lock and close windows when not in use.

What is the safety in uPVC windows?

Better uPVC windows feature beading on the inside rather than the exterior. The glazing beads lock the glass pane, but the frame hides them, making them impossible for burglars to use. The frame securely holds the glass in place while the outside beads remain attached.

uPVC doors offer various benefits, including more remarkable performance, a longer life, and enhanced security. The three main benefits of front and rear doors are little maintenance, thermal efficiency, and soundproofing.
