Unfortunately, the past has shown us that corded blinds are a lethal hazard to children.
There have been 17000 accidents involving young children and blind cords over the last 25 years, with 300 of these accidents resulting in death.
Legislation is now in place to ensure this doesn’t happen and all our blinds are fitted with child safe cords as standard.
All our blinds either have safety devices fitted to keep looped cords safe or have built in breakaway connectors to ensure that if any pressure is put on the cord it snaps open (easily put back together again if opened by accident). We also have safe by design which have no cords.
If you would like any free advice on blinds and child safety, then please just contact us.
