Weather Shield's Window Operating Control Devices Help Prevent Falls

4/5/2016 4:30:00 PM

The Window Safety Task Force of the National Safety Council are marking National Window Safety Week this week to help parents and caregivers learn how they can prevent children from falling from open windows. Weather Shield offers Window Operating Control Devices (WOCD) to aid in prevention.

Window Operating Control Devices (WOCD) limit windows from opening past four inches (4"), and automatically re-latch the windows when fully closed. They are available on double hung, sliding and casement windows on the Aspire Series, Signature Series, Premium Series, Premium Coastal Series and the Contemporary Collection.

Double hung windows also offer a degree of safety when homeowners open only the top sash as it's typically out-of-reach of children. 

Falls from windows can happen in a flash. You can help prevent them. Get more prevention tips at www.nsc.org/learn/safety-knowledge/Pages/Window-Safety-Week.aspx.
