child safety

Jano Blinds places a tremendous amount of importance on Child Safety in our homes, aiming to ensure the potential hazards posed by unrestrained cords and chains are understood and eliminated.

In line with legislation, we have carefully considered each blind on an individual basis, to ensure child safety is an essential feature. The home should be a place where children are safe and protected. Children naturally love to climb, explore and play and the possible risks may not be immediately obvious.

In-built Safety Systems

In-built safety systems are those that are built into the product and so do not require additional installation or operation in use. These include chain break connectors where the chain is designed to separate under any undue pressure. Breakaway tassels at the bottom of cords work in the same way.

Separate safety systems

Separate safety systems are those that require additional installation or operation in use. If cordless options or those with in-built safety devices are not suitable for your specific situation, then the only safe alternative is to use a blind with a separate safety device such as a tensioning device on a chain loop or an accumulation device such as a cleat so the cord can be stored out of reach of children. Make sure the device is securely fitted and always used.

Chain tensioners

If your blind has a looped chain, such as a roller blind, make it safer by using a tensioning device.These devices should be securely fixed to an adjacent surface and at the maximum distance from the top of the blind so the cords and/or chains are held permanently taut by the device.See how to fit one of these devices on the video below:
