Child Safety

Abacus Blinds are registered members of the British Blind and Shutter Association.

As BBSA members, we are fully committed to help eliminate the risks associated with hazardous, looped-operating cords, chains and tapes used on window blinds.

Window blind cords and chains must be kept out of reach of babies and small children and there are many solutions available for both new and existing blinds.

Here are some things you should do now if you have babies or young children living in your house or if babies or young children might visit.

  • Examine every blind in your home. If they have a looped control chain or cord and do not have a safety device fitted then you can easily install one of the many devices available. We will be happy to assist you.
  • Ensure that all operating blind cords and chains cannot be reached by children.
  • When buying a new blind always look for one that does not contain cords, has concealed cords or has an in-built safety device.
  • Move cots, beds and any furniture away from windows and blinds - remember children love to climb.
