Make It Safe

Since April 2014 the standards regarding the manufacture, supply and professional installation of internal window blinds changed significantly. It is now illegal to supply or professionally install a blind which does not comply with the child safety requirement of BS EN 13120.

At Brighton Sunblinds, we recognise that blind cords and chain can pose a risk for babies, children and vulnerable people who could injure or even strangle themselves on the looped cords. That is why we are an accredited member of the ‘Make It Safe’ campaign.

We are committed to giving our customers the best and most up-to-date advice on the most appropriate choice of blind, and how the current legislation will affect both the manufacture and installation. Whether you choose a blind that is safe by design such as Perfect Fit, a blind with an integral safety design such as easy-break connectors for our Roller Blinds, or a product with a non-integral safety device such as a cord tidy for our Roman blinds, you can be sure that any blinds supplied by Brighton Sunblinds will comply.
