Window Protection Units Explained
In a nutshell, our lockable Window Protection Units sit in front of the window reveal and only allow keyholders to access the actual window. Here we dig down into the many features of our Window Protection Units and explain what each really means.
The see-though “window” part of our frames is made from 6mm Polycarbonate, a hard but flexible material which performs well when subjected to high levels of impact.
The ventilation holes in the polycarbonate mean that once the unit is closed and locked, the window behind it can be opened without the risk of anyone climbing or throwing objects outside. This also allows for the actual window to be left open, allowing much greater air flow in the room.
Our Window Protection Units come with starkey locks. The keys for these are standard ones commonly used by handymen so there will never be any costly replacement issues in the event of one being lost. The starkey locks also mean we can keep the frames handleless so there’s nothing that can be pulled on.
Space for blinds & curtains
Assuming there’s ample reveal space – that’s the space between the actual window frame and the surface of the wall – our Window Protection Frames can be installed with curtains & blinds behind them too. This means light can be controlled and the service user afforded some privacy but without any of the risks usually associated with direct access to window furnishings in challenging environments.
Flush Piano Hinges
Our heavy-duty steel strip hinges run the full length of each door of the unit and lie flush within the frame. Strip hinges give the Window Protection Units an elevated level of security and make them more durable. They also make the frames easier to clean by reducing dust traps.
