Since 1st May 2013, there has been a requirement in the national construction code for the Protection of Openable windows for all new construction where windows are positioned 2 metres above the ground floor. These windows must be restricted or protected in a way to not permit a 125mm opening and resist a 250N outward force.

KidScreen Window Fall PreventionIn NSW window safety laws were passed in parliament for residential strata buildings to adopt these new requirements in new construction through to existing strata buildings. In NSW owners corporations have until 13th March 2018 to install such devices for the protection of openable windows.

The KidScreen Window Fall Prevention (KWFP) system (previously known as KidSafe Protection Screens) was developed to embrace these building change requirements and has done so exceptionally without the need of restricted openings.
