Childproofing Your Windows & Creating a Safe Environment for Your Child

When it comes to your child’s safety, every parent wants peace of mind. Feldco’s windows offer features that not only enhance the aesthetic appeal of your home but also provide a secure environment for your little one. Understanding the safety features of the windows themselves is crucial. Here are the essential window safety features to consider for childproofing your home:

childproof windows

Locks and Latches

  • Robust Locks and Latches: Modern sash windows equipped with childproof locks that are easy for adults to operate but challenging for little hands. This ensures that windows cannot be easily opened by young children, preventing accidental falls.

Safety Glass

  • Tempered or Laminated Glass: The use of safety glass, such as tempered or laminated glass, reduces the risk of injury in case of accidental breakage. This is particularly recommended for windows at ground level or in areas where children play.

Window Restrictors

  • Limit Opening: Window restrictors limit how far a window can open, especially useful for upper-story windows in homes with young children. They can be set to allow enough opening for ventilation but not enough for a child to fit through.

Cordless Window Treatments

  • Cordless Blinds and Shades: Opting for cordless window treatments eliminates the risk of strangulation, offering various styles to suit your home décor.

Furniture Placement

  • Proper Placement of Furniture: Keeping beds, cribs, and climbable furniture away from windows deters children from climbing and potentially falling out of an open window.
