Window restrictor company announces launch of the strongest restrictor on the market
Queen’s Award-winning window restrictor manufacturer, Jackloc, has launched the new Titan by Jackloc folding restrictor for care homes and hospitals.
The Titan is the strongest restrictor on the market, tested to withstand a force of 4,800 newtons, or the equivalent of five adult males.
Its launch follows the amendment to the Department of Health guidelines in 2014 after a fatal window accident and exceeds all standard requirements by nearly 10 times.
Jackloc wanted a name that personified the strength and support that the restrictor provides, so the Titan by Jackloc was born.
The restrictor can be retrofitted, fitted to side or top-hung windows, and, as with all Jackloc products, can be fitted to uPVC, timber and aluminium frames.
The restrictor can be fitted to existing or new windows
The product comes with hardened and zinc-coated, grade 4 security clutch screws and with a 10-year guarantee.
And, with the risk of burglaries in care sites, the Titan by Jackloc can provide extra security for open windows.
The product is fully metal, with reinforced steel hinges, meaning there is no cable that could potentially be cut.
Eric Collins, managing firector at Jackloc, said: “It’s a fantastic product – it’s sleek, streamlined and, more importantly, it’s extraordinarily strong.
“To have such a compelling product in our portfolio allows us to offer a wide range of possibilities to the market.”
