Child Safety Products and Tips

Child Safe Window Coverings

We have compiled a wide range of child Safe By Design window coverings.

Integral Child Safety Systems

Some blinds have integrated child safety systems

As a result these reduce the risk posed by chains & cords but must be used correctly and in conjunction with a cleat

The devices generally activate at varying pressures between 2.5kg and 5.5kg due to manufacturing limitations and to ensure they stay within the regulations

Choosing from our Safe By Design Range is still the safest option

Non Integral Child Safety Devices

Non integral safety devices such as a cleat will be fitted if you do choose blinds with looped cords

Therefore this will be securely fixed to an adjacent surface out of the reach of children. The cord must be secured as shown after each and every operation of the blind

If it is a product with a chain a tensioner will be securely fixed to an adjacent surface and at the maximum distance from the top of the blind so the chain is held permanently taut by the device

However choosing from our Safe By Design Blinds is still the safest option

Safety Tips

Choosing Safe By Design window coverings is always the safest option, so you do choose blinds with looped cords, reduce the risks by

1) Tying up the cords securely out of children’s reach, using the cleat after every operation

2) Moving your child’s cot, bed, playpen or highchair away from the window blind

3) Moving other furniture away from the window blind too, as young children love to climb
