Child Safety


We have been supportive of making corded blinds child safe for a number of years, helping to reduce the devastating number of tragic child deaths that occur from accidental strangulation from blind cords. Therefore in March 2014, child safety legislation was passed that put a legal responsibility on blind manufacturers, installers and retailers who manufacture & install blinds to do so in compliance with the safety standard.
