Tips on how to be child-safe with window blinds:
When you buy a Roller, Venetian, Wooden, Roman or Pleated blind with cords, your Bay Blind’s fitter will always install a discreet little cleat or hook for the cord to wrap around, so there are no loose strings. These are fitted at a minimum height of 1.5m above the ground.
Having a blind safety device is now a legal requirement even in homes without children, as little ones may visit you from time-to-time. In fact, if you move home and leave your blinds, or you are a property owner, you have an obligation to make sure all blinds are legally safe.
We recommend different devices depending on your blinds. For Wooden and Roman Blinds, we suggest cord cleats, which allow you to wrap the cords neatly and safely. Chain-break connectors are best suited to vertical blinds and roller blinds, while tie down clips and cord and chain tidies are idea for vertical blinds, roller blinds and roman blinds.
Installing the appropriate child safety devices is our priority at Bay Blinds and your appointed fitter will ensure the appropriate safety device is installed on your fitting day, but there are a couple of additional steps you can take to ensure that your blinds and curtains are child safe:
- Keep all cords and chains out of the reach of children using the safety hooks and cleats which have been fitted for you.
- Loose cords or chains should never be tied together.
- Furniture that children could climb on should be kept away from your windows
The team at Bay Blinds are dedicated to spreading awareness about the risks of unrestrained blind cords. We aim to educate all our customers and help them to make their window dressings as child friendly as possible. For more information please do not hesitate to contact our customer service team.
