Child Saftey  

At Blinds4You, we place child safety at the heart of every blind we produce. We will send out all the necessary child safety devices with your blinds. These must be installed in your home to comply with the British Safety standard EN13120.

All of our safety devices have been fully tested and are fully compliant with UK law. If your blind does not arrive with a safety device, then the blind might be child safe by design with no hanging loops or cords and therefore doesn’t require one.

How to make your blinds child safe

  • Keep blind cords, chains and tapes out of reach of children by using the correct child safety device.
  • Make sure your child cannot access the window blind by climbing onto furniture. This includes cots, sofas, chairs, tables, shelves and bookcases, which should never be located beneath or near to a window blind.
  • Ensure that all cords, chains and tapes are properly secured to the wall and remain tight.
  • Ensure all cords, chains and tapes are well out of reach, at least 1.5 metres above ground.
  • Do not tie cords together.
  • When purchasing new blinds, consider cordless or motorised blinds.
