Ventilation – external requirement for window opening restrictors

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.
