Free guide

Cubelock has published a new guide to window restrictors (available to download from in response to the Certass Best Practice Guide for Window Restrictors.

“We know that there are still unnecessary deaths and injuries because window restrictors haven’t been installed or installed incorrectly,” Toby Staff, managing director of Cubelock manufacturers New Star Door Controls, said. “Every time I see something reported in the news, it makes me feel angry. That’s why we continue to raise the awareness of the importance of window restrictors.

“We are very pleased to see the Best Practice Guide from Certass, and our new downloadable guide means anyone can get the information.”

The new guide includes information on homes, student accommodation and high security units, as well as a fire escape option. It’s designed for anyone responsible for fitting or maintaining windows and it’s free to download from the Cubelock Restrictor website in the downloads section.
