Child Safety: Make blinds safe for kids!

Child safety: Did you know?

  • Since February 2014, all made-to-measure blind suppliers have a legal responsibility to ensure their blinds and curtains are child safe.
  • Likewise, landlords must ensure all blinds in their residences are child safe.

Window blinds are a popular addition to our homes, adding the essential finishing touches of style, shading and privacy.

However, certain types of blinds are operated with cords and chains which must be kept out of the reach of little ones.

Fortunately, there are ‘safe by design’ versions of each blind style operated by wands, gears or even AI controlled motors!

Although, if your window size/position means you must have cord or chain operated blinds, then these must be fitted with a safety device.

These come in two types:

  1. In-built safety systems (built into the product)
  2. Separate safety systems (require separate installation)

Additionally, the cords and chains will be restricted lengths to comply with child safety regulations.

But no need to worry, we supply plenty of options that do not use cords or chains.
