As we don’t install them it is important that you follow the directions we give you, carefully when we send the goods to you. They are not complicated and will all makes perfect sense. These small measures mean that if a child gets tangled up in a blind cords, the cords will come apart due to the small ‘breakaways’ fitted to each cord.

Another option is to choose our roller blinds operated with a central pull, just choose his option when ordering. Or indeed you can now find electric blinds (also known as motorized blinds) which eliminate cords and chains entirely (please ring us on 01285 831437 to enquire).
