Yet another solution from Mighton Products… Always at the vanguard of product design, the company recently announced the imminent release of a key locking version of their popular child safety device for sash windows.
Known for listening to their customer’s requests, the decision to develop a locking version came as a response to the need for a combined security and safety device and follows the success of the patented Angel Ventlock® range of safety devices that are now widely used across the UK, USA and Europe.
Originally developed to meet stringent standards in the USA and Europe, the Angel series has proved immensely popular and are now used across many sectors from domestic to military and fitted by some of the world’s largest window manufacturers.
The basic concept behind the range is that they can limit the sash opening to 100mm for venting, are non-releasable by a child under 5, and will re-engage automatically when the sash is closed.
The new Angel has added benefit in that it can be locked to provide added ‘double’ window security (it latches and locks) in both the closed and vented positions. The product is for use on non-egress Windows only, as egress windows are used for emergency escape and rescue. The non-locking version of the Angel can be used on all windows.
There are two versions of the Locking Angel, both are intended for factory fit, but could be fitted by a competent homeowner. The Facefix version is screw fixed into the front face of the sash, whilst the Sidefix version is fixed through the side of the sash, hiding the fixing screws.
Mighton are confident the product fits a niche. It allows the customer to vent the window, provides added security but doesn’t compromise child safety.
Ventlock® is a registered Trademark in the USA, United Kingdom and the European Union and the Angel products are protected by comprehensive patents.
