Choosing child-safe blinds and shutters
Cordless styles - First of all, consider products that operate with wands and remotes, or by hand. Our remote control roller blinds and Perfect Fit blinds are a great place to start.
Access to cords - If you’d prefer a blind with a cord or chain, make sure they’re well out of reach of children. For those blinds with a continuous loop cord or chain, we’ll fit them with a safety device at least 1.5m above the ground.
Safety devices - Chain-break connectors - which snap the chain when it’s pulled very hard - cord tidies and cleats can all help to make your blind safer.
Furniture placement - Never put children’s beds or cots alongside a corded blind, or any furniture they’re likely to climb.
