Whether you’re fitting nursery blackout blinds, doing up a child’s bedroom, or simply re-decorating the family living area, in a family home there’s more to think about than the look and feel.
When it comes to child safety it’s important you make the right choices for your home. Start by taking a look at our remote control roller blinds or Perfect Fit blinds, which are all completely cordless and chain-less. Or, if you’d like another style of blind, speak to our team to arrange a free home visit. We’d be happy to take you through our full range and explain the British Blind and Shutter Association (BBSA) guidelines, which recommend installing blinds so that cords and chains are 1.5m above the floor. Many of our designs also come with built-in safety features, and we can suggest and secure additional devices for your peace of mind.
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.
