Child safety - Fitting & using window blinds
Although not an obvious hazard, window coverings can be potentially dangerous to young children – in particular the cords, tapes and chains that are used to operate them.
We do everything we can to make sure your chosen product is safe for your child. As a minimum, all of our blinds and curtains meet the European Standard BS EN 13120 for both performance and safety. Beyond this, safety is at the forefront of our minds right through the design process as we strive to make products that are not only stylish and high-quality, but also safe.
The information in this leaflet gives guidance for fitting the provided child safety devices. Please read it carefully and keep it safe for future reference.
There are things that you can do to reduce risk in your home.
Here are our tips:
- Move beds, cots and furniture away from the window.
- Do not let cords or chains hang loose. Make sure they are kept out of reach of children at all times.
- Do not tie loose cords and chains together.
- Check the condition of all safety devices if not used regularly and replace if the device is faulty.
