Thinking Child-Safe When Choosing Blinds
Toddlers love exploring. Whether in the great outdoors or their own bedroom, they learn and thrive when they’re free to discover their environment. And as a parent, you’re focused on keeping your little one safe.

Your home should be a haven; a place where the kids are free to explore and wander, protected from harm. As a family-owned and run business, providing safer products for families like yours is our top priority. Even the most vigilant parent can’t keep their child out of harm’s way every second of every day, but selecting child-friendly products for your home significantly reduces the risk of serious, or fatal, accidents.

Our child-friendly product options and recommendations have been designed to help you enjoy the precious peace of mind that comes from knowing your home is as safe as possible for your family, without compromising on practicality, quality and style.

Replace dangerous cords, ropes and chains

Some hazards, like a toy truck abandoned on the staircase, are easy to spot. Others, like a long and unsecured curtain or blind cord, are not so obvious. Whilst tension devices are a good option to anchor cords to the wall or floor, they’re still not the safest choice with little ones around. The best safety measure is to eliminate the need for cords, ropes or chains altogether. Our special Uniwand (for manual adjustment) and motorisation technology, are two product options that replace those potentially hazardous cords for ultimate peace of mind.

Keep your windows clear

Anyone with a toddler knows they love climbing up on everything, so it’s wise to keep cots, beds and furniture well away from windows, to stop little hands grabbing unsecured ropes to play with or put around their neck. The same goes for toys and play areas – put their play mat and toys in the centre of the room if you can, so curious babies and toddlers can’t see or reach the cords easily.
