New windows at Robert Wood Johnson Hospital have a secret


Safety first. New windows were needed for the psychiatric ward of the Robert Wood Johnson Hospital in New Brunswick, New Jersey. These were not to be just ordinary windows. They needed to be made to resist human impact and reduce chances of ligature injuries for psychiatric patient safety.


WINCO Window and nationwide window replacement company, Window City, worked together in determining the best window option for the hospital’s needs. Window City’s in-house crew installed the WINCO 8800 Psychiatric and the 1450 Hung Replica series. To eliminate unsightly psychiatric screens, WINCO added an accessory panel on the inside of each window. Each panel incorporates blinds in between two panes of glass, offering privacy, lighting control and healing natural light, while providing the required patient protection. The accessory panels are tested to resist breakage from more than 300 foot-pounds of swinging force.
