Child Safety

Window blind and curtain continuous loop cords and chains can pose a danger of strangulation to young children.

When choosing your window blind, you want to know that 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.

Having selected your new blind, We will supply and install safety devices or offer alternative operating methods where children or vulnerable people may be present, helping to give you peace of mind, leaving you free to enjoy your new window blind.

Other precautions to take

Keep furniture a safe distance from windows to prevent children from climbing up to window area.

Do not place a child’s cot, bed, playpen or high chair near a window so they may reach a blind cord.

Chains on the bottom of vertical blinds can also pose a danger to children and pets.

Sewn in bottom weights will prevent the need for bottom chains.

Do make sure that a safety device is fitted to keep the cords taut or out of reach.

Choose a cordless blind system like Intu or Perfect Fit.
