When the Child Safety Regulations were first introduced, we adopted a policy of only offering wand control vertical blinds. This means the blinds get tilted or operated just by a universal rod. However, this precludes the possibility of split-draw blinds.
Following further development of our ultra-modern high quality vertical blind system, we are proud to announce that split-draw operation of vertical blinds is now available with ‘child safe’ wand control.
What is split-draw operation
Split-draw operation is where the blinds get pulled from both ends of the glazed area. This is handy if you just want to open one window or door and keep shade at the other end of the room. In addition to split-draw operation, you can also have sloping tops. Sloping tops are ideal for the side triangular area on lean-to conservatories. In some cases, we can also offer remote control operation.
Quality vertical blinds
There are many cheap vertical blind systems available nowadays, but very few have such an ultra-modern appearance and robust design. This means you are buying a blind that will last for years and completely ‘child-safe’ with no hanging cords or chains.
Older style vertical blinds used to have chains/cords strung along the bottom of the blinds to hold each vertical pane in place. This was often a trip hazard, particularly for small children and pets. Our blinds no longer have cords along the bottom, creating an extra child-safe feature for your home.
Other child-safe options
We can offer other child-safe options which are “Safe By Design”
SmartCord® blinds are a totally child safe way to have free-hanging, cord-operated blinds in your home. Thanks, to their short cords that retracts into the headrail, there is no need to worry about child-safety or resort to using cleats to tie up the cord. Although the cord is short, it can still pull any size blind. Pull the cord for the blind so it gently lowers itself, stopping when it reaches the end, or whenever you touch it.
SmartCord® blinds are available for our Duette®, pure™ Pleated and Pinoleum blinds.
We have developed the LiteRise®blinds so customers can operate the blind without a cord. This means, you will never have to worry about child safety with blinds. Thanks, its integrated counterbalance spring and clutch mechanism the blind stops exactly where you leave it. Therefore, you can have complete control over your blind without the need for any extra safety devices such as cleats. Many previous customers have transformed their glass extension into playrooms since having Literise® blinds installed.
The LiteRise® system is available as either Duette® blinds or Pleated blinds and is ideal for wider windows up to 2.4m (8′)
