Who Would Benefit Most From the Titan by Jackloc?
The Titan by Jackloc is perfect for use in care homes and hospitals. According to the Health and Safety Executive, window falls in health and social care settings can be accidental, the result of a confused mental state, or a deliberate attempt at self-harm.
The Titan Window Restrictor can't be disengaged without the use of a key and is able to hold a force of 4,800 newtons (or the equivalent weight of five adult males), ensuring the safety of those using the window. It can also be used privately to prevent window falls and burglaries in the home.
Will the Jackloc Titan Folding Restrictor Fit My Window?
Unlike Jackloc's cable restrictors, the Titan Window Restrictor does not have a universal fit and you may have to contact the manufacturer for advice. In general, the Folding Restrictor can be retrofitted onto side or top hung windows with uPVC, timber and aluminium frames.
Fitting Instructions for the Titan Folding Window Restrictor
To install your Titan Window Restrictor, you'll need to measure the different spacer sizes to find the correct one for your window. You'll then need to use a pencil to mark the desired position of each plate before using a drill to attach them. Please refer to the video below for a visual guide:
How Big is the Jackloc Titan Folding Window Restrictor?
The dimensions of the Jackloc Titan Folding Window Restrictor are 60 x 45 x 73mm (HxWxL). It is thicker than other Jackloc restrictors for enhanced strength, but is still compact with a sleek design that allows it to fit seamlessly into most settings.
Do I Have to Use the Screws Provided?
The restrictor comes with a few sets of security clutch screws. To stop the restrictor from being unintentionally removed, these screws cannot be removed from the window unless a tungsten carbide drill is used. For a less permanent fitting, you can use your own screws, although you should first make sure they are the correct size for the restrictor and suitable for your window.
Will the Titan Window Restrictor Last a Long Time?
The Titan Window Restrictor is intended to be especially durable and comes with a ten year manufacturing guarantee. The product is made entirely of metal with reinforced steel hinges, making it very difficult to break. There are no cables on it which a burglar would be able to cut.
Why Is it Important to Keep Ward Windows Open?
According to research, the rate of exposure to airborne infection is four times higher in hospital wards were the windows are kept closed. In wards where windows are open, there is sufficient ventilation to encourage the circulation of air, reducing the infection risk.
