NOTE: New Jersey Law now requires the window guard cover the entire lower half of a double hung or single hung type window from the top of the sill to the bottom half of the upper sash with less than a 4 inch gap above and below the guard.
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.
Remember: horizontal and vertical window guards differ . Mounts for Guardian Angel window guards are designed to butt together so that only 4 inches are between protective bars. The mounts are at the top and bottom of the window interior, often between the screen and the window glass. Mounts for horizontal guards are mounted on the sides of the window's bottom pane so that there is no more than a 4 inch space between the first bar and the bottom of the window. The screen is usually on the outside of the window pane.
NOTES: Window guards do NOT substitute for adequate supervision. Child safety requires mature persons establishing and supervising children in a safe environment.
Window guards MUST protect the entire OPEN portion of window or panel for baby safety.
No space greater than 4 inches is allowed according to ASTM PS 120.
Use window stops with Window Guards for windows that open more than 22 inches.
