Blinds and Child Safety

Blinds and Child Safety

Saftey_cleat_chrome_chain_child_safe

The law regarding blinds and child safety is nearly 2 years old and here at Surrey Blinds we have really seen the changes that this has bought. Initially it felt like an uphill battle, trying to explain the changes to our customers, but we have seen a remarkable change over the last 18 months with so many more of our customers choosing child safe options.

Here are some of our favourite Child Safe window dressings

Shutters

Child Safety Rating 10/10

Bi-Folding-Shutters-in-Dorking-Page

These window dressings transform any window they are fitted in, we have seen a huge increase in the number of people who are installing shutters and have literally hundreds of testimonials from customers saying how fantastic they look.

Motorised Roller Blinds

Child Safety Rating 10/10

Awning-Motorised-page

Motorisation is really beginning to come into its own, we can now motorise Roman Blinds, Wood Venetian Blinds and Pleated Blinds as well as Roller Blinds.

The most popular of these is the roller blind. This is available as battery operated, rechargeable Battery operated as well as mains powered, and the technology is getting better and better. Come into our Guildford showroom to experience our super quiet Creation Baumman Roller Blinds range.
All of our motorised roller blinds come with sleek remote controls, and there is also the option of wireless wall mounted control panels, just to ensure you can’t lose the remote!

Vertical Blinds with Operating Wand

Child Safety Rating 10/10

Vertical-Child-Safe-By-Design

All our vertical blinds now come with wand operation, instead of the traditional cord and chain, for Child Safety.

In addition to this our vertical slats all have a completely enclosed weight at the bottom, doing away with the stabilising chain which used to connect the slats at the bottom, this gives the Vertical Blind a sleeker and more modern look.
Altogether a super safe blind

Pet Friendly Blinds

Pet Friendly Blinds

If you, like me, have pets then it is important to choose pet friendly blinds.

Pet Friendly Blinds

By pet friendly blinds I am referring to those blinds which are easy to keep clean, durable, especially if they will be anywhere near your pets, and safe.

Vertical Blinds can be a really practical solution, especially on patio doors. Many vertical fabrics are washable, and with our wand operation and heavy weights sealed in the bottom of each slat, do not have the cords and strings which can prove very interesting to dogs and cats.

Many Roller Blind fabrics are also washable, and roller blinds have the added advantage that they can be rolled away, well out of reach when not in use.

Shutters are easy to clean, so these can also be practical, just not necessarily if your pet is a chewer!

Please give us a call and we can come out and give you some advice on the best blinds for your windows!
