All our window blinds are designed with safety in mind and there are a number of options for you to choose from. By law, all blinds fitted must be child safe, whether or not you have children living with you.
We offer a variety of child safe blinds, that are operated without cords and chains, to best suit your needs and interior.
Louvolite One Touch™ motorisation provides convenient yet affordable solutions for both domestic and commercial projects. Choose from the rechargeable Lithium motor range or the mains powered AC motors.
Using Louvolite Perfect Fit®, the blind is concealed safely within the Perfect Fit frame which clicks into uPVC windows and doors or Perfect Fit Universal.
Operate vertical, panel and Allusion™ blinds with monocommand wand control.
Soft Rise Spring Return system smoothly raises up Roller blinds up to a pre-set upper stop when released.
Crank Handle & Child Safety Wand operation can be used with our Roller and Vision® blinds. When not in use the wand handle detaches from the operating clutch.
CHILD SAFETY WAND
The new child safety wand & hook, now available for the Louvolite System 40® Roller tube.
The handle moves easily up and down the wand and the direction can be adjusted by the flick of a switch.
Check out the video to see how easy it is to fit the wand & hook and smooth it is to operate.
CHILD SAFETY DEVICES
Blinds with cords or chains must always be secured with a child safety device as the cords and chains pose as a potential strangulation and entanglement hazard. A cord tidy must be fitted at a height of at least 1.5m from the floor.
Our Vertical, Panel, Vision® and Allusion™ blinds are supplied with a cord tidy.
Our Roller and Roman blinds are supplied with either a cord tidy or Easybreak® connectors.
Our pleated and cellular blinds are supplied with a cord safety tassel.
Easybreak® connectors are safety features for chain operation which disconnect when a certain amount of force is applied to the chain. A chain must be fitted at a height of at least 0.6m from the floor.
ADDITIONAL SAFETY STEPS
Keep all cords and chains out of reach of children using the Child Safety Devices.
Loose cords or chains should never be tied together, as this forms loops which poses a highly dangerous risk.
Furniture that children use or could climb on should be kept away from your windows.
In line with legislation, all Louvolite operating systems are compliant with the Child Safety Requirements of BS EN13120.
