    I meant one like:

    But to get one in your already small size might be an issue.
    More frame than glass! :)

    Ohh okay yeah a top opening (casement?) window. I'm not sure... next door will be able to see the silhouette of activities they'd rather not! :LOL:

    The WC is only 1.5m long by 1m wide. I'm just glad I've managed to get the BCO to agree to not having a bank of extractor fans!

    Is this assumed "security risk" anticipating that a slim and agile burglar (or his child or dwarf assistant ?) might be able to get through the window, or perhaps the risk that an assassin might lob a bomb through?

    What does this BCO turned security expert advise about the risk that a burglar may be carrying a roll of brown paper, a jar of honey and a hammer?

    :LOL: That seems to be the case! Once I'd explained I was going for purge ventilation (because let's face it, it's only a toilet in one room and a washer/dryer in the other) he was just focused on security.

    I'm unsure if there's a section in the regs that define an 'unsafe' and a 'safe' window based on the width of the average burglar!
