For full building compliance we will schedule your installation with approx. 3 weeks’ notice to residents, who can book a preferred timeslot for the given installation date. Our technicians will then carry out the installation with minimal disruption to residents.

Where a 3-week notice period to residents is not required, these jobs will be booked into the next schedule availability

Compliance certificates are issued for each residence we attend, providing our clients with a signed record of all legislative requirements being met.

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.

HOW DO I KNOW IF MY 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.

 

WHEN DOES A WINDOW REQUIRE A 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.
