A backyard swimming pool that has windows within the pool enclosure.

An open window can boost your mood and energy levels, help regulate the temperature and humidity in your room, improve air quality, and create a balanced and comfortable environment.

But what if your windows won’t open all the way?

Chances are you have window restrictors installed.

Window restrictors are a safety device that limits the opening of a window to 100mm. They are designed to prevent children falling out of upper storey windows or gaining unsupervised access to pool and spa areas.

They serve an important purpose, but there is a popular alternative.

Window Security screens

Window restrictors can be annoying, with their 100mm (10cm) breeze-blocking constraints. Fortunately they are not the only option for safety around pools.

Security Screen Windows are a popular choice for the safety conscious, breeze-loving pool owner.

WA rules for pools and spas require windows within pool and spa enclosures to be safe and secure from children gaining unsupervised access.
