As a market leader in fenestration hardware, AT engineered, patented, and manufactured a releasable limit device for windows which meets the ASTM F2090-17 safety requirements for self-resetting, egress capable, fall prevention devices. The ASTM F2090 addresses window fall prevention that helps protect against potential falls by children through open windows. This is done by allowing the window opening to be set at a predetermined position of fewer than four inches (4”) and automatically re-latch when fully closed. AmesburyTruth’s SafeGard™ 2C provides a means that the window, when opened in an initial operation, will limit the venting to less than 4”. By code, two actions are required to open the window fully for egress purposes. This additional operation can be performed without the use of keys, tools, or special knowledge. SafeGard™ Window Opening Control Device is designed to allow for factory installation.
Key Differences between Safegard™ 2C & 2R
Safegard™ 2C is:
- NOT self-locating
- Designed for typical 5/8" hardware cavity
- Recommended that all applications be reviewed by AT for best fit
