The standard affecting internal window blinds was significantly revised in relation to child safety requirements in February 2014 and, in effect, mandates:
-Limitations on cord and chain lengths
– Safety devices for preventing cords and chains from creating a hazardous loop
– The fitting of safety devices on cords and chains at the point of manufacture
– The testing of all safety critical components of internal window blinds
– The testing of complete blinds using safety devices
We are fully compliant with all these regulations and every blind we sell and fit meets these guidelines. If you would like any more information, or have any concerns please speak to your advisor or fitter who will be happy to explain in more detail.
