Fire Escape Window Hinges Supplied & Fitted
Have you been informed by your local Council that your window hinges are not Fire escape hinges? Therefore the hinges do not pass the Building Regulations, consequently your extension cannot be signed off?
We can supply and fit all types of window hinges. Including fire escape hinges that comply with Building Regulations.
Please see below ‘Before and After’ photograph of standard window hinges, which were replaced for fire escape hinges. You can see in photo 2 that the fire escape hinges allow the window to open a lot wider. As the current local Building Regulations state that the opening must be a minimum of 450mm in width and height.
Building Regulations for Means of Escape information
Only one window per room is generally required to provide a means of escape. If your local Council requests an escape window for a new extension or existing dwelling. The following criteria, as shown below should be followed. In addition it is also generally good practice to replace any window on the first floor that is not used, with an escape window. Above all your local Council will be happy to inform you of their latest regulations and rules.

- Width – No less than 450mm

Child Safety Window Hinges
If you have young children, you may be concerned about the large opening of your windows upstairs?
We can solve this problem in one trip and change your existing window hinges with a specially designed pair of child safety hinges. The hinge only allows the window to be open a small amount. However, if you decide you want the window open more. Then there is a child proof release button that allows only the adult to open the window further. These type of window hinges, are the same hinges that the local council requires all landlords to have fitted on their properties.

We can fit stand alone child safety catches to your UPVC double glazed windows if required.
If you are thinking of letting your property it might be worth fitting child proof window locks before your new tenants move in.
