    Why it’s dangerous to have bars on your house windows


    Accidents around the home occur from time to time. Slips, trips and falls are some of the more common accidents and are usually only minor in severity. Yet there are hazards around some homes that can lead to more severe injuries and even fatalities, such as bars on your house windows.

    The dangers of having bars on your house windows

    As a homeowner you may be considering whether to have bars on your house windows. Bars on your house windows are usually installed a burglar deterrent, making it so difficult for intruders to get inside your home, it prevents them from trying at all.

    While bars on your house windows is good for protecting your home from burglars, it does pose a health and safety risk for you and your family.

    In the case of a fire, your windows act as an exit point. When you put bars on your house windows, you block this escape route, meaning that you, or your loved ones, may become stuck in the case of a fire.

    This can unfortunately lead to fire-related illness and injury, such as respiratory problems and severe burns. It can also lead to fatalities.
