Child Safe Blinds

All internal blinds must comply with the
2014 child safety standards.

In early 2014, the standards regarding the
manufacture, supply and professional
installation of internal window curtains and
blinds changed significantly.

The new standards aim to protect babies
and small children and apply to new
curtains and blinds. From now on,
installation of child safe blinds and curtains
in all homes is compulsory whether
children are present or not.

Child safety measures involve limitations
on cord and chain lengths, using safety
devices for preventing any cords or chains
from creating a hazardous loop and safety
warnings as appropriate.

Pret a Vivre is fully compliant with the
2014 child safety standards for curtains
and blinds for internal windows.
