Blinds Fitting and Safety

Blinds fitting and safety

Roman blinds need to be fitted so that they are safe for children.

This means you should always use cleats or tension devices to keep the cords / chain away from the reach of any children. The minimum height from the floor to the cord or chain is 150 cm.

General rules for making it safe for children

  • Ensure that all operating blind cords and chains cannot be reached by children.
  • Move cots, beds and any furniture away from windows and blinds – remember children love to climb.
  • Use safety devices if children have access to the rooms with blinds
