Common sense Dangers of horizontal invisible grille to toddlers. Some may use it as a push-up bar...

Recommended Posts


Invisible grilles are pliablewires that are strung along windows either horizontal or vertical.
How often we see a young child or several children hang onto a line or such a wire.
In the long term, e.g. as this apartment has windows that are west facing, there may be frequent expansion and contraction of these wire lines. (Wear and tear).
And if children were to frequently play on these wires; one day the wire(s) may be more and more pliable.
And if the wires are hung horizontally, one day, an unfortunate child's head may just get stuck in between a set of the wires = suffocation.
Placing these wires vertical is harder. As a child cannot use his whole body weight to "loosen / cure" the wires as much as one which hangs on to the wire causing it to warp significantly (after some time).
Hope you can visualise what I am saying. This is pure common sense.

Pardon me for the rough sketch.
It shows a child with his full body weight with both hands handing on the thin wire. And he placed his head between two wires.
Do note:
1. Of course, the manufacture or installer will always claim that it is safe.
2. Like everything, there is the "wear and tear" part. Where if a child were to frequently play or swing himself on the wires.
3. It also depends on the length of the grille. The longer the horizontal length, the greater is the concern of it flexing more.
4. Sunlight. As the wires are made of some kind of metal, there can be expansion through the years especially if the unit directly faces the afternoon sun.

There is another aspect to consider when installing grilles.
For example, if a home uses sliding windows, then (in theory) it is preferred that the grilles are horizontal with minimal vertical support pieces. This is because, it would allow the sliding window(s) to be quickly (slide) opened or closed.
Imagine, if sliding windows were used and grilles are vertical, it makes it very difficult to open or close the windows.
In my opinion, such invisible grilles are unfriendly if casement windows are/were installed. This is because, for casement windows, our hand(s) have to stretch out to open partially or fully opened.
In doing so, for most of us our (skin would scrape) the wire grille. AND in no time, especially for us man, it would result in having the hairs on our hands being scraped away. This may be good for a girl. But for us man, some may think that we are either hairless or mistaken otherwise....

Through time and "rough use" such wires may even sag as shown in the attached example.
Of course if, frequent inspection and adding more cross supports can further help as preventive situation.

Many toddlers and their siblings can be educated to remind them not to place around the invisible grilles (if already installed). 

As a further layer of deterrence.

How about roller blinds?

Many roller blinds have strings.. be it enclosed in beads or bear strings.

Take precaution of not having the bed close to these pulleys.

Using one's imagination, a loose string... may touchwood have a child's head tangled by these strings....

Many Feng Shui concepts have it's roots in pure Common sense!

Many Feng Shui Masters are actually a Salesperson with a Feng Shui Store in disguise.

Recognise that their motive is only to Sell, sell, sell and make$$$, make$$$ make$$$! 

1483486279_blacksheep.jpg.6e392ccd728e53852267cf9dc054f92b.jpg 

Ask: Must I buy from you?

Spread the word to your relatives and friends. 

When the buying Stops!, the selling Can!
