Working to provide a safer tomorrow for children.

The National Association for Child Window Safety is a nation wide, nonprofit association. 
In  2006, a 2 year old girl fell through an apartment window screen four  stories to the concrete below.  Motivated by this tragedy, our founder,  began working with Minnesota Legislation to pass "Laela's Law", named in  honor of the young girl who through a miracle survived the fall. The  realization that it did not take a miracle to save a child, only  responsible legislation, paved the way to begin working on passing  similar laws in other states.


Window falls account for numerous  childhood deaths and 4,700 injuries for children each year.  Most of  these children are under three years old.  Children living in apartment  buildings have the highest number of window fall incidents — five times  more than children living in other residences. But this worry faces  mothers and fathers from every economic status.  Even the rich and  famous, such as Eric Clapton, have lost children to window falls.


Passive Guards, such as Child Safety Screens and Guard Bars have been proven to prevent more than 96% of child window falls.


After a meeting with ASTM subcommittee in 2017, the NACWS decided this new standard is what we would present to the ICC.
