Conforms to most local fire and building codes for egress type window guards. Meets Massachusetts building codes: 780CMR 3603.14.2.2 and 780 CMR 1010.4.
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, window 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.
Mounts for Guardian Angel window guards are designed to butt together so that only 4 inches are between protective bars. Vertical installations are usually between the screen and the window glass. Horizontal installations are on the sides of the window's interior frame or beyond the frame in the studs along the window's edge.
