Helping parents and carers child-proof their window blinds.
Child Safety Advice
In early 2014, the standards regarding the manufacture, supply and professional installation of internal window blinds changed, to prevent harm to young children on window blinds, cords and chains.
All blinds supplied, must now comply with the child safety requirements of BS EN 13120:2009+A1:2014. This standard aims to protect babies and small children, by ensuring the installation of safer blinds in ALL HOMES and other premises where young children may be present.
For many years, even before this legislation, SW Blinds has been proactive in promoting safer blinds, and is a keen supporter of the ‘Make it Safe’ campaign, which was set up by the British Blind and Shutter Association. We have worked extremely hard to ensure that our blinds are both, user friendly and safer for children, and that all blinds we supply are compliant with the new standards.
For more information about window blind safety please see the Make It Safe brochure.
