Opening restrictors to windows may sometimes need to be installed to meet:
- Health and safety requirements,
- Building regulations or,
- Legal obligations.
Where such external requirements are in force, these requirements cannot be used as a mitigating factor for meeting the BREEAM ventilation criteria.
Even with window restrictors, adequate ventilation can still be achieved.
