If you have children you need to consider the safety of the window blinds you use in your home. Many child hazards and dangers involved with window treatments can be avoided if you choose the right preventative safety features. Child safety blinds will help to increase the safety of your windows through use of several cordless functions. Cordless blinds are the recommended way to improve safety as they have no cords, which are the main cause of accidents and injuries.
These cordless functions include a wand control, continuous cord loop, and motorized blinds making use of a remote control. A wand can be spun either clockwise or counter clockwise to open the slats or vanes and pushed to completely move the entire stack of blinds open or closed. Continuous loop cords, although not ideal are a much safer option if the positioning of the window demands a cord. They will remain the same length regardless if the blinds are open or closed and can be anchored to the wall out of a child's reach. Lastly, motorized blinds involve the use of a remote control and completely eliminate any manual operating function. Such a feature is generally used for larger, out of reach windows and is for both ease of use and safety. Blindsgalore is proud to offer a wide variety of window blind options that improve child safety.
Things to consider:
When shopping for child safe blinds, consider which operating mechanism is right for the window.For very tall or hard to reach windows, a motorized blind or the continuous cord loop option might be right for you.
