Child Safety

As children start to explore the World around them it means that window dressings can pose a risk to them. Loop chains, cords, braids etc. all can be hazardous to young children or vulnerable adults. Blinds & Curtains by Nicola Jane are committed to ensure that all window dressings are a safe as possible and adhere to the latest UK legislations.

Separate safety systems require additional installation and/or operation in use. Your blind installer will make sure the device is securely fitted and you must ensure it is always used. By law there are limitations on cord and chain lengths for separate safety systems. Fixing height limitations will also apply, your blind installer will discuss this with you when fitting

Built-in safety systems are built into the product and do not require additional installation or operation to use. Some window sizes or shapes may not lend themselves to cordless window blinds or you may specifically wish to co-ordinate with your existing blinds. In these instances you can then choose a blind style with a built-in safety device, such as a chain break connector where the chain is designed to separate under any undue pressure. By law there are limitations on cord and chain lengths for built-in safety systems.

Blinds & Curtains by Nicola Jane will ensure all blinds fitted by us are supplied and fitted with separate child safety systems or built in safety systems.
