Child Safe Blinds & EN13120 (European Safety Standards)

In the interests of Child Safety and current legislative guidelines under The CEN European Safety standards EN13120:2009+A1:2014, dictates in as much as possible, to eliminate the risks of entanglement or strangulation of young and vulnerable children.
These risks posed by unsecured loops in cords and chains attached to window coverings, have resulted in British Blind manufacturers, reducing the use of operating cords and chains in favour of child friendly operating systems. All blinds manufactured after February 2014 are required to conform to the new legislation and be supplied with the cords and chains terminating at the regulation heights and must have an integrated safety device. In further promoting child safety we have a selection of retro fit Child Safety devices which retain or remove operating chains and cords away from the reach of children which you can fit to existing blinds around your home
SunFilter also publishes literature on this site, which conveys guidelines on removing the risks posed to children from blinds and window shade operating cords and chains. Ask us about our Child Safe Blinds and Anti-ligature devices. Legislation changed in February 2014, we conformed much earlier in our manufacturing. Spread the word, CHILD SAFE! CHILD SAFE!
