CarillionAmey - Important Window Safety Check Required In Family Accommodation



As we approach the warmer months of the year, it is really important to check that the window restrictors in the upstairs of your property are working correctly, especially if you have children.
You can do this by:
Engaging the window restrictor (putting the lock/latch on) and trying to fully open the window. The restrictor should only allow the window to be opened a small way
Look at your window restrictor. It should have the BS kite safety mark stamped on it (shown below)


If you are concerned that your window restrictor is not working correctly please call us on 0800 707 6000 option 1.
If you are moving into your property, your Accommodation Officer will check the window restrictors for you and show you how they work.
