Blinds UK – The First Website to Offer Information and Child Safety Mechanisms

May 21, 2010

ST ALBANS, England, May 21 /PRNewswire/ — Blinds UK introduces information and child safety mechanisms for its products for the first time, being the first UK online shop to provide customers with data as well as solutions meant to make blinds safer.

Well known for delivering customers with affordable window treatments but with quality information on all its products as well, Blindsuk.net is an online retailer which has been active in the industry for numerous years.

Child safety is an issue of major concern for homeowners and thus for the manufacturers in the blinds industry as well. That is why, in an effort to provide customers with safer window coverings, they have come up with safety mechanisms which are either integrated in the structure of the blinds or as additional products which are to be used in conjunction with them. Roller blinds are usually controlled with the use of a chain which posed the risk of accidental strangulation as the chain often forms a loop. The same is true for wooden blinds in Venetian format as well as vertical blinds. They are cord operated window treatments which are often considered dangerous to use in rooms with toddlers. But thanks to the technological advances in the industry, roller blinds can now be found with a spring operation system but can also be made safer when operated through a chain with the addition of an easy break chain connector. Venetian wooden blinds can be used in rooms with children in combination with a cord cleat while verticals are usually a safe choice when a tie down clip is installed next to the blind.

After these safety solutions have been offered to the general public, Blinds UK was the first UK website to integrate a child safety section for most of its products. Here, customers can now find more information on general recommendations as issued by the British Blinds and Shutters Association as well as special mechanisms which are offered as a default on ordering or which can be purchased separately, all in an effort to ensure that each customer is not only well informed on the risks but on measures they can take to diminish the risks.

A blinds retailer present in the online environment for years, Blindsuk.net is the first website to offer customers detailed information in child safety related issues as well as mechanisms they can use on their blinds to make them a safer choice for households with toddlers or other vulnerable persons aiming to provide a complete shopping experience.
