CHILD SAFETY – MAKE NO COMPROMISE!

With child safety being a priority, all of our blinds are made with safety in mind. Where additional child safe devices are required, we will supply and fit to the standards required for free. Advice can be given at time of measure or fitting.
The following checklist should help you:
  • Position furniture a safe distance away from windows to prevent children climbing too close to them.
  • Do not allow control cords or chains to hang close to cots or beds, or to gather on the floor.
  • Do not allow control cords or chains to hang free. Use one of the safety in Mind products to secure them out of reach, or consider a cordless blind system such as INTU.
  • Be aware of chains on the bottom of most Vertical blinds; consider sewn-in bottom weights or chainless PVC vanes.

When choosing your window blind you want to know it will complement your decor, give you privacy and provide the shading from the sun that you require. If you have young children, we encourage you to also consider the small safety features that can be added to your blind. To help prevent cords or chains from posing a potential hazard we have a wide range of safety components available, which are suitable for all blind types.
