Child Safe by design – what does this mean to you?

Inquisitive little hands have a tendency to explore by grabbing, and when it comes to your blinds or shutters, this could spell disaster for all involved. We believe your child’s curiosity should be encouraged, so we have tailored our products to enhance the safety of your home environment.

At Thomas Sanderson we are not only committed to giving our customers outstanding window dressings – we make child safety a continuous priority across all our products. In compliance with the current European standards law, our products are ‘safe by design’ – meaning they are crafted without cords, pulleys or chains that could form a loop.

In order to eliminate risk wherever we can, we have developed a range of family-friendly solutions for our products. Our UltraGlide® system operates by a retracting cord which returns to its starting length after use for increased safety and neat storage. Our SmartCord® system, specially fitted to complement our energy-efficient Duette® blinds, also features a safe retractable cord that’s always accessible without endangering you or your family. If you prefer to do away with cords completely, our LiteRise® design incorporates a gearing structure that allows you to operate your blinds with one smooth movement. Push up to raise, pull down to lower: no extra apparatus needed.

The ultimate in effortless operation and child-safe design is undoubtedly the PowerRise®. This remote-controlled, automated system allows you to adjust your window styling with the touch of a button. Keep out of reach of your little ones, especially if they have an affinity for pressing buttons!

Our PowerView™ system is our most cutting-edge child-safe solution, providing complete blind control from your smartphone or tablet. This intuitive system allows you to operate your blinds remotely, whether you’re indoors, out in the garden or halfway around the world. Not only does this offer more precise, energy-efficient control over light, shade and temperature, it is completely safe around your little ones.

Manufacturing child-safe products has been, and continues to be, one of our most important values. Get in touch with our expert staff to find out which system would work best for you.
