Blind Safety
 

All of our blinds will be supplied with a child safety device. We fit the device when we fit your blinds, to make sure it's safe, straight way. Make sure you test the device regularly.

Our blinds either have no accessible cords (so no strangulation risk) or are supplied with child safety devices which are fitted as per the manufacturer's instructions. Warning notices are supplied with the product.

Safety devices are already included with our blinds, but the new legislation requires us to apply stricter test methods and also raise customer awareness to the strangulation risk posed to young children through warning labels andinstructions.


 

 

 
 
SAFEFTY FEATURES
 
Safety chain break Splits the chain loop apart should a child become entangled in the loop.
Chain tensioning device Keeps chain/cord loops under continuous tension and secures them to the wall, so stops the cord or chain from forming a loop.
Breakaway cord connector Releases cords safely when sideways pressure applied.
Breakaway clips (roman blinds) Allow rear cords to safely detach should a child become entangled.
Cleats Secure loose cords to the wall out of reach of young children.
Anti tangle toggles Used to prevent the 2 cords that tilt a metal or wood venetian blind from forming a knot. Although the cords may wrap around each other, the design of the toggle will allow them to unravel in the event of entanglement.

 

 

 
FAQ
 

Can I buy products which do not have Child safety devices?

All of our products have a child safety device, including blinds which are made before the new legislation came into effect.


Can I use a Roman blind in a child's room?

We do not recommend Roman blinds manufactured prior to 31 March 2014 are used in a child's room or anywhere a child may be unsupervised, because although they do have a child safety device with them, they do not have the exact child safety device required by the new legislation.

If you have any questions, please ask us by getting in touch.


I'm worried about my existing blinds, what can I do to make these safe?

We follow the product instructions and use the child safety device supplied. If the device is not used regularly, make sure that you test it and replace it if it is broken.

Please also follow the advice below to avoid the risk of harm to children:

  • Keep blind cords out of the reach of young children.
  • Move beds, cots and furniture away from windows that have blinds installed.
  • Do not tie cords together. Make sure that cords do not twist and create a loop.
  • Be aware that the release of small parts can cause a child to choke if swallowed.
