New standards have been introduced which affect the manufacturing, selling and installation of all new internal blinds in homes and public buildings.
Tragically there have been a number of accidents where children have become entangled in window blind cords. Although thankfully rare, the EU has revised the standard governing window blinds to ensure child safety measures are always provided.
Curtain Flair and Curtain Flair Fitters fully support the Make It Safe campaign and comply with 2014 legal requirements for internal window blinds
For full details of the 2014 legal requirements for internal window blinds
Curtain Flair and Curtain Flair Fitters fully support these changes to the European standards. Our internal blinds are fully compliant with the new standards for internal window blinds and we have a range of tested safety devices for making existing blinds safer.
Most of these safety devices are unobtrusive, inexpensive and simple to install. We would be pleased to advise you on the best option for any blind you have in your home whether installed by us or not.
We also have a range of “safe by design” blinds, which have features especially tailored to make them perfectly safe for anywhere where children live and play.
Curtain Flair and Curtain Flair Fitters are members of the British Blind and Shutter Association, a trade association that have helped spearhead the drive towards safer window blinds in the UK. Their Make It Safe campaign is supported and endorsed by The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) and the Child Accident Prevent Trust (CAPT) and referenced by many other organisations. The Make It Safe website offers a lot of advice and information about child safety in relation to window blinds, and can be found at www.makeitsafe.org.uk
