Child Safety Screen Guards

These are not ordinary window screens.
Child safety screen guards withstand the pressure - minimum 60 pounds static weight - from kids pushing or leaning.

What Clients Say About Child Safety Screens

Lendlease hopes to finish installing Tough Tek Metals window safety screens in the majority of 156,000 upper-story windows in its 40,000 military houses by 2026. They initially tried using limiting devices on windows, which allows the window to open only a limited distance. However, installation fire departments pushed back on these devices because they block escape in the event of a fire. So, Lendlease’s innovation group and the environmental health and safety team worked with industry to see what was available, and teamed up with Lansing Housing Products to develop a strong screen, said Phillip Carpenter, Chief Operating Officer, Lendlease Communities . What’s most exciting is the potential for this innovation to make its mark beyond Lendlease.

After explaining the problem of children falling from windows, and how they could help, Brian Houlihan and the entire labor force at Lansing Housing Products took on the project with enthusiasm and purpose.  They took it on, and with the assistance of the Iowa State University Engineering Department came up with a patented Child Safety Screen.

When asked to do a Benefit/Cost Analysis to determine the impact of the Child Safety Screens when installed on existing large multi-unit affordable housing developments it was found that such installation saved property management approximately 98% of all window maintenance costs. 
The screens simply save money as well as save children
