Safe and easy operation.

Children are curious about the world around them, so even basic household items including window coverings can turn into potential hazards for them. Making our window blinds safe for homes with infants or young children is a top priority at UK Blinds. So, of course, we’re committed to meeting the European EN 13120 standard as a minimum safety requirement.

UK Blinds have developed a wide range of window covering products to help reduce the risk of accidents. From cordless blinds to motorised operation we are continuingly developing new products that are designed with safety in mind.

General Advice...

Buyers and users of blinds should be aware of the hazards that can be posed by unrestrained cords, braids, loop chains and wires, which may be hazardous to young children. The following guidelines should always be considered.

  • Young children can be strangled by loops in pull cords, chains, tapes and inner cords that operate the product. They can also wrap cords around their necks.
  • To avoid strangulation and entanglement, keep cords out of reach of young children.
  • Move beds, cots and furniture away from window-covering cords.
  • Do not tie cords together.
  • Make sure cords do not twist and create a loop.
  • Install and use the safety devices according to the installation instructions on these devices to reduce possibility of such an accident.
  • A warning tag which highlights the dangers to children is attached to every cord or chain operated blind and is also repeated in the installation instructions.
