Child safe blinds
The main focus for lots of people when buying blinds is based on aesthetics: what do they look like? Do they suit my home? What are they made from? The safety of blinds may not be at the forefront of your thinking, but it is nevertheless a crucial part of the window dressing.
At White Rose Blinds, we are proud to provide a range of blinds that are ‘child safe’ and or comply with the current child safety legislation. Thus removing the potential fatal risk of a small child getting caught in a blind cord or chain. The different types of children’s blinds include:
Cordless blinds – without the cord, there is nothing for a child to grab onto. The blinds are opened and closed by pushing them up or down, against their own tension.
Chain-break connector – There is no loop in the chain like there is with the cord of traditional blinds. Instead, both ends of the chain connect to a small device, and when a certain amount of pressure is placed on the chain, it disconnects entirely, releasing all tension.
Tensioned cord – there is no slack, which means there is nothing to get tangled up in.
Motorised operation – no cords at all.
Mono wand operation – this is for vertical blinds, a wand, twist left or right to tilt the louvres, push the wand to open and close the louvres.
