'Don't Forget Safety When Choosing Blinds', Urge Conservatory Blinds Experts, Thomas Sanderson

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Jan. 18, 2011) - Window blind specialists, Thomas Sanderson are urging homeowners to ensure they choose properly designed blinds which are professionally manufactured. The leading UK blind makers are calling for people to think about the safety aspects of their chosen design; especially if they children to make sure they have the best option to suit their home.

While colour and style are usually at the forefront of the average homeowners mind, safety is often forgotten despite being the most important thing of all.

Thankfully, Thomas Sanderson provides conservatory blinds and window blinds which have in-built safety devices. The first is a small retaining clip which is secured to loop chain/ cord blinds to make the chain or cord taut and at a height that can only be reached by adults. The second device is a simple metal cleat that is implemented on pull cords to enable the cord to be wrapped around the cleat when the blinds are not in use.

A spokesperson for Thomas Sanderson, says: 'We consider the safety credentials of blinds as vitally important and ensure that no product is fitted with loose chains or cords without the appropriate safety devices to manage them. All of our blind systems have remote control options and therefore have no unrestrained chains or cords, eliminating the risk of a child injuring themselves altogether'.

The window blinds experts have the following advice for any homeowners looking to buy the safest option blinds:

  • Make sure all cords and chains are secured and out of the reach from small children

  • Do not allow cords or chain to hang free

  • Where possible, cords should end and/or be secured at least 1.6m up from the floor

  • Never put a cot, bed, high chair or playpen near a window or patio door where a child can reach the blind cords or chain

  • Keep sofas, chairs, tables, shelves or book cases away from windows to prevent children climbing up and reaching blind cords/chain

  • Consider using cordless blind systems
