Maybe I suggest you inspect a typical Naco window framework when you're back in Malaysia.
More than a decade ago, I fully DIY dismantled a 3 section Naco window frame assembly to replace to aluminum sliding window at my kitchen. It was very very tough work to break everything apart and eventually dispose it.

Sad to read another similar tragedy at Kepong. Similar 2 storey terrace home.
I saw one recently and the spacing is about 12" to 15" & I also thought the iron bars should bend with a kick, no?
