How to measure for child safety window guards:
Identify window type. VERTICAL: The window opens by sliding a
panel to the side in a track, cranking a panel out or pulling or pushing a
panel of glass in or out. Guards for vertical windows are mounted like prison
bars to protect either the entire window opening or the entire window. SINGLE
HUNG : The lower window panel moves up and down in a track. DOUBLE HUNG :
Both the upper and the lower window panels move up and down, each in its own
track. For Single or Double hung windows, customers usually protect only the
window opening. This is done with a single guard with a window stop to keep the
window from opening above the top of the mounting bar. To protect both panes,
vertical guards can be mounted side by side or stacked like a ladder.
Decide where to mount window guards: Inside the window frame or
extending beyond the frame with mounting bars in the studs.
Use a tape measure to measure interior width of the window frame or
beyond the frame for stud mounting.
Push the bottom window panel up until it stops or push the panel to the side to measure
the entire physical opening .
Treat a double or single hung window like a vertical if you wish to cover the
entire window. Send us e-mail with the dimensions and we'll assist you.
Compare measurements with chart below. Guards "telescope" like curtain
rods, locking into the side or top mounting bars. Guardian Angel II window
guards are not spring-loaded.
For unusual windows or for larger quantities of guards, fax specs or drawings
NOTES: Window guards do NOT substitute for adequate supervision. Child
safety requires mature persons establishing and supervising children in a safe
Window guards MUST protect the entire OPEN portion of window or panel for baby
No space greater than 4 inches is allowed according to ASTM PS 120. (This is
why double and single hung windows can not be safely mounting vertically in
sliders, casements, and push-outs or pull-in windows.)
Use window stops in conjunction with Window Guards for
windows that open more than 22 inches.
