An Open and Shut Case it Would Seem!

Closed windows are just not an option in many situations for many people. Fitting a window restrictor just gives you that little bit more confidence to control your personal space without greatly compromising security or safety in the home.

Handlestore.com has an expansive range of Window Restrictors available via its online store and has seen record breaking demand during the recent hot weather spell. Window Restrictors improve window safety and security by restricting how wide the window can open as well as giving greater peace of mind against accidental falls and opportunist burglary.

The long hot summer days and sticky nights make it very tempting to leave windows open to any prevailing breeze and for many that temptation can be too great. Leaving windows open is an invitation to entry for the wrong sort of people and can pose a security risk in most situations. Furthermore the possibility of accidental falls from open windows particularly by small children in bedrooms is just as worrying for any parent. Fitting window restrictors allows a window to be open but “locked” to prevent it being opened any wider, and that at least gives more assurance than an otherwise open window.

George Mitchell MD of Handlestore.com states, “Over the recent hot weather we have seen a 200% increase in sales of our window restrictors. These are in high demand by our customers because closed windows are just not an option in many situations for many people. Fitting a window restrictor just gives you that little bit more confidence to control your personal space without greatly compromising security or safety in the home. The nice thing about our uPVC window restrictors is that you don’t even know they are there! With discrete fixing between the frames and a key release action for full opening they just perform as part of the window each time and every time!”

With a wide range of window restrictors to choose from getting the right restrictor for a particular window is the most important assessment for customers to make. George Mitchell explains, “It’s just not enough to have the widest range of restrictors online as customers need to be given the right information and support to make sure that what they are buying will work correctly with their particular window design. Customers like the fact that these devices are made from metal and tested to British Standards and equally are hidden away on the window without any detrimental fixing to affect the aesthetics of the window.”
