Safety Is Our Highest Priority

Child Safety is one of the things we hold as fundamentally important here at Custom Blinds. One of our main objectives when visiting your home and carrying out work is the protection of children.

When a design is chosen, we can offer additional safety measures including:

  • Cord & Chain Safety Cleat
  • Safety Tassle
  • Spring Cord Tensioner
  • Easy Break Chain Connecter

General advice

Moving beds, cots and other furniture away from window blinds with the cords/chains/ball chains or similar being exposed. Children can climb furniture to help get at them

To avoid the child being choked of strangulation and entanglement, please keep cords/chains/ball chains or similar out of reach of young children.

Make sure that cords do not twist together and create a loop
Safety devices such as hooks or cord tensioning wheels may be purchased from hardware stores or curtain shops and are relatively inexpensive.

Please consult with us as the window blind manufacturer/installer to assist in helping make the correct decision as to which is the best solution for you when retrofitting old blinds

Do not tie cords together

Allow us as the installer to fit the safety devices as it has come to our attention that some customers are refusing to do so.

Consumer Guide

The National Consumer Agency urges parents, guardians and carers of young children and managers of public buildings, such as schools, libraries, crèches, playgroups and Montessori’s to take all necessary measures to protect young children from the possibility of being injured or strangled by window-blind cords/chains/ball chains or similar.

Be safe

The NCA wishes to warn consumers, however, that the new safety measures on their own cannot totally remove the risk of strangulation or injury to children and children should not be left unattained.

Parents and guardians are therefore urged to take all necessary safety measures to enhance their children’s safety.
