Child Safety

Spectrum Blinds and Curtains takes child safety very seriously when fitting our blinds. One death caused by a blind cord, is one death too many. That is why we are heavily involved with the “make it safe” and “safety in mind” campaigns.

Any questions about the products? Please do not hesitate to ask.

Blind Cord Safety

You can take a number of practical and simple precautions to significantly reduce the risk.

By securing looped cords or chains with one of the many safety devices available.

Blind cords and chains can pose a risk for babies, children and vulnerable people who could injure or even strangle themselves on the hanging looped cords.

Make it safe

By always consulting a British Blind and Shutter Association member. Each one is committed to the BBSA’s “make it safe” code. They will give you the best possible advice on the most appropriate choice of blind and the ways to make it safer. You will also be able to find out about blind options that are designed to operate without hanging cords, such as wand or motor operated. Find your local member by visiting www.bbsa.org.uk
