Integrity Expands New Safety Feature to Wood-Ultrex Gliders and All Ultrex GlidersBy Integrity Windows
New Window Opening Control Device restricts window opening to less than four inches and requires two distinct actions to disengage
FARGO, N.D. – Integrity® from Marvin Windows and Doors is proud to announce that a new solution, which was designed to improve child safety and fall prevention, is now available for its Wood-Ultrex and All Ultrex Gliders.
The new, factory-applied Window Opening Control Devices (WOCD) limit the window opening to less than four inches. They require two distinct actions to disengage, and they automatically reset when the window is returned to closed position. The WOCDs are available in White and Almond Frost on Wood-Ultrex Gliders and in White on All Ultrex Gliders.
The WOCD feature meets ASTM F2090-10 requirements, which were developed in response to increasing media and legislative focus on child safety and fall prevention. The solution also complies with the 2012 International Building Code (IBC) requirements for fall-prevention devices, and they maintain all product WDMA Hallmark Certified Performance Grade (PG) ratings.
“We are thrilled to add this solution to our glider windows,” said Becky Felling, Director of Marketing at Integrity Windows and Doors. “Expanding our high-quality, factory-applied Window Opening Control devices to these products provides builders the opportunity to use Integrity windows in even more building applications, whether code requires a WOCD or not.”
Builders and homeowners should check their local building codes for further WOCD information.
Integrity previously added WOCD solutions to additional products, including its Wood-Ultrex® and All Ultrex Casement, Double Hung and Single Hung windows.
