Window guards are safety devices intended to keep young children from falling out of apartment windows. By law, every apartment with children 10 years of age or younger must have them. For this reason, residents of record — tenant shareholders and sublessees/renters alike — are required to complete and return a window guard notification form (español). This form is sent by the management company to residents every January. You must return the completed form by 15 February.
The co-op will install window guards for you at no charge if children 10 years of age or younger reside in your apartment. Please note that window guards are designed only to prevent falls, not to protect you from intruders.
