Child safety is very important to us, we strive to provide solutions to make blinds safer. On all our new orders, we will provide safety devices for the cords and chains of blinds in order to ensure they are not dangling down hazardously. However it is important that if you already have blinds without safety devices that you look at getting devices installed, we can supply devices that are suitable for different blinds, please see our product page for accessories for more information.
As we are members of the British Blind and Shutter Association we have a wealth of information about how to make our blinds safe. Key aspects of ensuring safety with cords and chains for blinds include; ensuring they are out of reach of children, having a safety device fitted that stops the cords and chain from hanging loose or chain-break connectors that mean the chain breaks apart when weight is applied and not placing furniture like sofa's or children's beds next to windows where there are blinds hanging. These precautions help to reduce the risk associated with loose cords and chains. Although this is directly related to homes that have children living in them, it is also important that homes or buildings where children may visit also take these precautions.
In addition there are new ranges of blinds which we supply that do not have cords or chains that hang loose including; spring operated roller blinds, tensioned blinds and wand operated blinds. You can find out more information as well as images for these blinds in our product page.
