Q: What are Child Safe Window Blinds?
In the UK, the child safety laws for blinds came into force on February 28, 2014, as part of the European Union's General Product Safety Regulations. These regulations require that all window blinds and shades sold in the UK must be designed and manufactured to be safe for young children and must be supplied with appropriate safety devices to reduce the risk of accidental strangulation.
Child safe blinds are designed to reduce the risk of accidental strangulation for young children. They typically feature cordless or motorized operation, eliminating the need for cords that can pose a hazard. Child safe blinds can provide peace of mind for parents and caregivers, while still offering the same great style and functionality as traditional blinds.
