It's now illegal to supply or professionally install an internal window blind which doesn't comply with the new child safety requirements. Blinds fully compliant with BS EN 13120:2009+A1:2014 are confirmed as 'safe by design', and this standard applies to all blinds fitted in all rooms in every home or public space, regardless of whether children are present or not.
Whilst all our blinds have child safety features incorporated, such as breakaway chains, p-clips, cleats and chain tidies and fully comply with the law, we also offer systems that pose no risk at all.
Crank-operated roller blinds remove the risk simply because there are no cords. The crank handle can even be removed. A motorised electric blind has no dangling cords, with the key components hidden inside the barrel of the blind. A spring blind removes the risk of a child getting caught up in the cords simply because a braked spring is used to raise and lower the blind.
Please educate your clients on the simple safety measures that come with our systems and choose ‘Child Safe Plus’ blinds for products without cords on our website product pages.
