Your bedroom windows have fire escape openings which are designed to ensure safe escape in case of fire. These windows are also fitted with a restrictor which limits the opening of the window to less than 100mm or 4 inches. This restrictor is fitted to ensure that small children cannot open the window fully and are protected from falling out of the window.

It is important that you make sure all occupants are familiar with these restrictors and can release them in case of an emergency.

To release the window restrictor
  1. Open the window sash fully as far as it will go
  2. Pull the window sash back in slightly – (1/2 inch or 10-12mm)
  3. Push down on the restrictor arm and pull inwards. This releases the restrictor and allows you to open the window sash fully. When you close the window sash the restrictor will automatically engage.
