Hidden Safety Hazards At Home
Even though this house is in pristine condition, the purchaser wanted to get a pre-purchase building inspection performed for piece of mind.
Luckily for this family we were able to identify a serious potential hazard, especially for those with young children.
A safety issue was found with the upstairs bedroom and lounge room windows. They were below 700mm from the floor height- easily reachable by toddlers. When opened too far these windows allowed an opening greater than 125mm, which fails to comply with the Australian standards.
125mm is the largest gap allowed for balustrades also. This can be dangerous if overlooked- if you have infants or toddlers falling from the 2nd level, needless to say the consequences are catastrophic.
