Jackloc Restrictors Compliment Your Standard Window Locks
Jackloc window restrictors provide a vital safety feature in both public buildings and private residences. The original Jackloc cable window restrictor was specifically designed and engineered to restrict window access and reduce the risk of falls. It restricts window opening to a maximum of 100mm, rendering it improbable for any person or child to fall through. The current product range includes a choice of universal key lockable restrictors, permanently fixed cable restrictors, push and turn restrictors and the new, folding key-lockable window restrictor.
There are many window restrictors available on the market, all varying degrees of quality. The Jackloc cable window restrictor not only meets, but exceeds all the necessary rigorous safety testing procedures, ensuring it is the best product of its kind.
The Benefits of a Jackloc Window Restrictor
In rooms where child safety is a concern – window restrictors are essential, as numerous injuries and fatalities occur annually due to accidents involving open windows.
Fresh air is not only pleasant in the home, it is essential to our health and wellbeing.

Window restrictors provide much needed fresh air to circulate whilst maintaining a safe environment.
Window safety should be a key feature in every high-rise building, regardless of whether there are child occupants or not. Jackloc window restrictors are the ideal solution, providing safety for all the residents.
Buildings used by members of the public such as health services, educational establishments, local authority buildings etc. all fall under general health and safety laws with the governing body held responsible for the safe guarding of its occupants – window safety is an important consideration.
