Pleated Blinds and Child Safety
Child Safe By Design - Smart Cord: Pleated Blinds can be operated using a "Smart Cord" which is a single length of cord, encapsulated in a transparent wand. Pull the smart cord and the blind will raise. The smart cord automatically retracts into the headrail. Repeatedly pulling the smart cord, will raise the blind all the way to the top. We call this ‘child safe by design’ as there are no looped cords or chains to operate the blind.
About Child Safety
At newblinds.co.uk, child safety is of paramount importance. If left hanging freely, chains and cords from blinds can pose a direct threat to children. For this reason, we are working towards all of our products being cord-less or chain-free and therefore “safe by design”.
Where it is not yet feasible to supply a product that is “safe by design”, we ensure that the product is fully compliant with Child Safety legislation. Not only do we ensure that, where necessary, our products are supplied/fitted with child safety cleats/devices, but we also supply, free of charge, these items to our previous customers.
