Internal blinds installed in publicly accessible buildings must be made safer. This requirement is also applicable to the accessible areas of commercial buildings such as reception areas. It’s quick and easy to make existing blinds safer as the videos below show.
When considering new blinds make sure you choose a style which is inherently safe (sometimes called “safe by design”). These blinds either have no operating cords and chains at all or have concealed or tensioned cords.
Every blind style can now be made cordless, from gear operated with a crank handle (ideal for schools), to wand operation, hand operation and motorised.
