Our compliance certificates include photographic and location descriptive evidence of each window safety device installed. They are time and date stamped, and ASQB also keeps a record on hand for future reference, if required.

*Our installations are fully compliant with NSW legislation and include a functionality assessment and force testing

When does a window require a child window safety device?

If the window sill is less than 1.7m above the internal floor, and that floor is 2m or more above the external surface outside, a window safety device must be installed.

Ongoing Safety Compliance Checks

It is essential for Strata Managers and Owners’ Corporations to continue to meet their legal responsibilities through regular inspections, maintenance and testing of window safety devices.

Over time, window safety devices can fail to work effectively, resulting in your windows becoming non-compliant.

This can be a result of:

  • Device Misuse

  • Device Removal

  • General Damage

  • Lost Keys

ASQB recommends having window safety devices checked annually, at a minimum

What a Window Safety Compliance Check Involves

The inspection and assessment of every child window safety device throughout a residence, as well as the general condition of each affected window.

Each window safety device will be checked in accordance with legislative requirements. This includes a functionality assessment, force testing, and measurement evaluation.

If required, on the spot maintenance or replacement of non-compliant child window safety devices will be performed. This includes lock alterations/adjustments, key replacement (if possible), and device replacement, if necessary.

An updated compliance certificate will be issued for each residence visited. This will include photographic and location descriptive evidence of each child window safety device checked, and any replacements that are installed

How do I know if my current child window safety devices meet legislative requirements?

A window safety device that meets legal requirements must answer yes to the following questions:

WINDOW SAFETY DEVICE

1. Are the keys present?
2. Can the window be locked in the closed position?
3. Can the window be locked in a vent position less than 12.5cm?
4. When the lock is engaged, can it resist a force greater than 25kg?

GENERAL WINDOW CONDITION : The condition of both the frame and sash should also be considered when assessing the window safety device. If the window does not operate as intended, it should undergo a service to ensure occupants’ safety.

WINDOW SECURITY SCREEN (including bars & safety grills)

1. Are all gaps less than 12.5cm?
2. Can the screen resist an outward pressure of 25kg?

GENERAL WINDOW CONDITION : The condition of both the frame and sash should also be considered when assessing any screens or grills that are attached to them. If the window does not operate as intended, it should undergo a service to ensure occupants’ safety.
