What Are Security Restrictors?

Security restrictors are mechanisms attached to sash windows designed to limit windows opening and reduce the risk of break-ins. They can be found in various forms; key locks, sliding locks and child safety catches are common types of restrictors available. Many restrictors are designed to hold windows securely in the vent position, usually around 100mm. If you plan to fit a restrictor to your windows yourself, make sure it is within the manufacturer’s approved guidelines.

Why Fit Security Restrictors?

Adding a security restrictor to your sash windows is an effective way to deter potential burglars and increase the safety of your property. These locks can be used to secure your windows and any other type of lock you may already have. They are also great if you have children or pets, as they allow you to open your windows a little while preventing them from opening too far.
