In early 2014 the standards regarding the manufacture, supply and professional installation of internal window blinds changed to prevent harm to young children on window blinds cords and chains.
All blinds supplied must now comply with the child safety requirements of BS EN 13120:2009+A1:2014. This new standard aims to protect babies and small children by ensuring the installation of safer blinds in ALL HOMES and other premises where young children may be present.
For many years, even before this legislation, S W Blinds has been proactive in promoting safer blinds and is a keen supporter of the Make it Safe campaign which has been set up by the British Blind and Shutter Association. We have worked extremely hard to ensure that our blinds are both user friendly and safer for children and all blinds we supply are compliant with the new Standards.
