Roto North America Promotes the Angel Ventlock for Window Safety Week 2023

Window Safety Week is the first full week in April, coinciding with the arrival of spring when people naturally want to open the windows and let in air, according to the National Safety Council. Roto North America is particularly cognizant of the safety concern regarding children falling through open windows. With that concern in mind, we became the exclusive distributor of Angel Ventlocks (AVL), a quality-engineered Window Opening Control Device (WOCD) manufactured by Mighton Products.

Since 2009, WOCD’s have been required in the U.S. for certain window openings to meet code requirements and are intended to limit the window opening to <4” in an effort to help prevent the fall of young children from open windows.  AVL’s are manufactured with high quality Zamak 3, in 3 finishes, and are tested in compliance with ASTM-F2090.  Single action devices (sold as a pair in a kit) are designed to be installed on hung windows, one device applied to the left and right sides of sash, whereas dual action devices are designed to be installed on horizontal sliding windows.

For more information about AVL’s and to receive assistance selecting the optimal product for your window application, please contact Roto North America.
