Doric Products presents an in-depth guide on Australian window opening regulations designed to provide information to builders and architects on current requirements.

Statistics indicate more than 50 children fall from windows or balconies in Australia every year, leading to serious injuries and even fatalities. Most of these falls occur in the children’s own home, especially during the warmer months when windows and balcony doors are left open. Children aged between one and five are most at risk as they lack the ability to recognise danger.

New laws require owners’ corporations in NSW to have window safety devices installed on all above ground windows by 13 March 2018.

Doric Products’ guide on Australian window opening regulations provides an overview on the National Construction Code and its requirements; the range of Doric products for various window types; and testing methodology, self-certification and compliance information.
