? Safety First: Blinds Created with Children in Mind

Window blinds can really open up the range of design options on offer to parents when it comes to decorating their children’s bedrooms or living areas.

However, did you know that under current health and safety regulations, anything operated by a cord or chain must be secured with a child safety device, even if you don’t have children of your own? In fact, you can still be held responsible for any blinds you leave behind, should you sell or move, so you need to ensure that they not pose a danger to the children of the new owners!

With this in mind, you may be relieved to hear that there are a range of cordless designs and child-friendly devices available from most blind manufacturers for you to choose from that will eliminate this potential headache for you.

Typical child-friendly options to look out for:
• Wand-operated blinds (cordless)
• Shutter-style blinds (cordless)
• Thumb tab operated blinds (cordless)
• Cleats for securing cords out of reach, usually fitted at a height of at least 1.5 metres from the ground
• Hooks to keep controls taut.
• Breakaway components that automatically disassemble if too much weight or force is placed upon them

Be sure to ask your blind manufacturer for the best option to suit your preferred style of blind and operating preferences.
