Truth Hardware SafeGard Casement Window Opening Control Device (WOCD)

In a recent story found in the June 2012 issue of Door & Window Manufacturer (DWM) Magazine, it was reported that the International Code Council (ICC) approved a change stating that window opening control devices complying with ASTM F2090 shall be installed where an existing window is replaced. This change, referenced as G 225-12 proposed that, "in all windows in group R-2 or R-3 buildings containing dwelling units, window opening control devices (WOCD) complying with ASTM F2090 shall be installed where an existing window is replaced, according to section 3048.1".

It should be noted that Truth Hardware's new SafeGard Window Opening Control Device has been tested and certified to ASTM F2090-10 which is the standard specification for Window Fall Prevention Devices with Emergency Escape (Egress) Release Mechanisms.
