CHILD SAFE BLINDS & SHUTTERS BY DESIGN


Making our window blinds safe for homes with children is a top priority for us. From cordless blinds to motorised operation, we are continually developing new products with safety in mind.

FOR YOUR PEACE OF MIND


Thomas Sanderson is committed to adhering to the European 13120 standard (Internal Blinds Requirements including safety) as a minimum safety requirement. This means you can purchase our products safe in the knowledge that we’ve done everything we can to reduce any risks in your home.

THE OFFICIAL CEN STANDARD EN 13120


Complete elimination of the strangulation risk can only be achieved by keeping cords, chains, and tapes and similar out of the reach of children. Use of additional safety devices may reduce the risk of strangulation but cannot be considered foolproof. Motorisation eliminates the risk associated with looped and pull-cord operating mechanisms but risk the relating to inner tapes and cords (for relevant products) remains. Persons in charge of children are ultimately responsible for following the safety instructions provided by the manufacturer.

GUIDELINES AND ADVICE


At Thomas Sanderson, your family’s safety is paramount to us. With that in mind, please consider the following advice when making a purchase:

    • Keep cords out of reach of young children.
    • Move bed, 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 safety devices according to the installation instructions on these devices to reduce the possibility of an accident.
