Responding to concerns over child safety and fall prevention, Integrity from Marvin Windows and Doors now offers Window Opening Control Devices (WOCD) for its Wood-Ultrex® Double Hung and All Ultrex Double Hung and Single Hung products.

These devices restrict the window opening to less than 4 inches. They require two separate actions to disengage, and automatically reset when the window is returned to a closed position.

These WOCD solutions meet ASTM 2090-10 guidelines and comply with the 2012 International Building Code (IBC) and International Residential Code (IRC) requirements for fall prevention devices. ASTM 2090-10 was developed in response to increasing media and legislative focus on child safety and fall prevention. Builders and homeowners should check their local building codes for further WOCD information.

“We expect this intuitive device to be well received as a solution, whether codes require it or not,” said Becky Felling, Director of Marketing at Integrity Windows and Doors. “We’re certain that builders and owners across the entire housing spectrum will appreciate the value of a high-quality, factory-applied window opening control device for single hung and double hung products.”

The factory-applied devices are available in White and Beige on the Wood-Ultrex Double Hung, and in White on The All Ultrex Double Hung (IFDH) and Single Hung. The device maintains all product WDMA Hallmark Certified Performance (DP) ratings.
