When London based building company, Belsize Construction was faced with the task to ensure the windows on a large number of properties, owned by a leading UK youth homelessness charities were made safe to protect their young residents, they recognised Locit cable safety restrictor was the only product up to the job.
Belsize Construction was approached by the homeless charity, to restrict the opening of the windows on multiple sites throughout London and beyond. The sites are home to many young adults aged between 16-25 years, often from a variety of different backgrounds, including; family separation, abuse, refugees and asylum seekers some of which suffer from a variety of mental health problems.
Eugene Rozidor, Director of Belsize Construction commented “Our customer required a simple and easy to use system which allowed them to control opening restriction on the properties windows, in particularly upper-floor levels. They hold a responsibility to provide a safe and secure environment to their young residents and it was vital to use a product which could allow such use.
“Our customer’s fitting time to install at the various sites was tight, with entry to some of the properties having limited access due to the rooms being occupied. We also faced the difficulty of the windows being manufactured from various building materials and required a universal fit product to ensure project time-scales were met. After researching the market, we felt the Locit window cable safety restrictor would provide us and our customer with all the requirements needed to fulfil the project.
“The Locit window cable restrictor allowed us to complete the request of our customer, with the added bonus of ease of fitting for our installers and the ability to chose from the products various colour and fitting options to suit each properties window style. We are grateful to Sash Jack for working with us on this project and will certainly be considering Locit cable safety restrictor for future projects.” remarked Eugene
