Child Safety Screens

Ordinary window screens create a false sense of security.

Kids and Windows.
LOOK OUT!

Between 1990 and 2008 an estimated 98,415 children were treated in U.S. hospital emergency rooms for window-fall-related injuries.

Get the Facts

The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) Says:
Window-Related Falls

Kids are more likely to die or be severely injured from window-related falls than any other kinds of product-related falls.

Injuries from Falls

More than 5200 kids are treated in emergency rooms each year for injuries related to
window-falls.

Deaths from Falls

Each year about a dozen kids, 10 years old and younger, die from these window-fall injuries.

Safety Precations

The precautions protect kids from window-fall injuries.
Kids Love Open Windows

Kids are curious.  There's a lot to see and hear.  It's almost like being there.

Do's & Don'ts

Keep furniture away from windows. Ordinary window screens create a false sense of security.

Child Safety Screens

These are not ordinary window screens.
Child safety screens withstand the pressure - minimum 60 pounds static - from kids pushing or leaning.

Our child safety screens, ToughTekMetals®, withstand 100 pounds static pressure and keep children on the safe side of an open window.

What Clients Say About Child Safety Screens

After explaining the problem of children falling from windows, and how they could help, Brian Houlihan and the entire labor force at Lansing Housing Products took on the project with enthusiasm and purpose.  They took it on, and with the assistance of the Iowa State University Engineering Department came up with a patented Child Safety Screen.

When asked to do a Benefit/Cost Analysis to determine the impact of the Child Safety Screens when installed on existing large multi-unit affordable housing developments it was found that such installation saved property management approximately 98% of all window maintenance costs. 
The screens simply save money as well as save children
