Safety Nets

Post by FiGiggles04 » Tue, 19 Apr 2016 2:53 pm

Hi there,

I need to put some safety nets inside my apartment on the bottom windows. Have been googling all morning trying to find a good provider. Can anyone first hand please recommend a good provider here in Singapore?

Many thanks,

Fiona

You are concerned about the situation of the kid running into the window or something similar?

Hi there. No actually I live in a high apartment and I have a toddler who likes to be playing close to the window. I am worried about the glass breaking - if she throws a toy, or the kids are playing roughly near the window, a chair falls onto it ... basically avoiding accidents ... so I need a net or a grid on it.

So actually yes. We had similar concerns living on the 17th and 25th floors and by observations: nobody in Singapore uses any kind of protection for the bottom windows, and reasoning, we decided it was safe the way it was.
Note, the windows in the condos are laminated windows with at least a layer of IR blocking film from inside. Also note, people do protect the windows (with bars) in Singapore extensively (so they can recognise potential problems), but only these that could be opened. These two points allow a reasonably safe assumption that it is not that easy to break this kind of window.

If you are mega concerned, order acrylic or polycarbonate sheets that would cover the windows. It will cost you some money.

Great. Thanks for the reassurance. Still looking for a bit of extra support with the nets.

Some landlords are so finicky, they dont' like extra additions to the property, even if that meant well. Just see the LLs mood, if you are gonna add something that's going to stay put even after you left.
