What’s new, what’s cool in window and door hardware technology.
AmesburyTruth has engineered, patented and manufactured a releasable limit device for residential windows. The SafeGard 2R has been developed to meet the ASTM F2090 safety requirements code for self-resetting, egress-capable, fall prevention devices. This product limits the opening of the window to less than four inches, however it can be released in case of an emergency to achieve egress or for cleaning purposes. By code, dual-action release mechanisms are required to open the window fully for egress. This operation can be performed without the use of keys, tools, or special knowledge. SafeGard 2R will automatically re-latch when the window is fully closed. In addition to the safety provided by limiting the sash opening, SafeGard 2R is easy to install in the factory and can be adjusted inside the home after window installation. The unit is fully concealed when the window is in closed position and does not interfere with the operation or performance of the window. SafeGard 2R can be used on casement, awning and hopper windows and is also available for commercial applications.
