Blind cords and chains can pose a risk to babies, children and vulnerable people who could
injure or even strangle themselves on the hanging looped cords.
You can take steps to reduce the risk by securing the looped cords and chains with one of the
many safety devices available.
Shades will discuss the options available to you and recommend various options:-
Our control guard cord safety device is a low cost solution for increased child safety. This
simple unit, suitable for roller, roman and vertical blinds, houses the operating chains and
cords and secures against the wall. These can be retro fitted to all the blinds listed above.
The Uniwand combines tilting, raising and lowering of the Venetian blind into one control.
When the blind is raised, lift cords can be wrapped around the cleats attached to the wand
eliminating free hanging cords.
Our easy glide system for vertical blinds also eliminates the danger of children becoming
entangled in cords. The vertical blind is manufactured with a Wand Control. Simply pull the
wand across your window to open and close the blind, to alter the angle of the blind simply
twist the wand to rotate the louvers.
