Child Safety

Here at BlindsPlus we place paramount importance on child safety in your home. We aim to ensure that potential hazards posed by unrestrained cords and chains are understood and therefore eliminated. In line with legislation EN13120, we carefully consider each blind on an individual basis ensuring that child safety is an essential feature and that the product you choose is child safety focused.
