Your child’s bedroom is likely to be a bright and colourful room, which they use to sleep and play. Children's bedroom blinds, much like the decor, should be fun and vibrant, safe, and keep out bright light. Here at Blind Technique, we have a new collection of children’s blinds to choose from, with styles perfect for bedrooms, nurseries and playrooms. We know how quickly children grow out of their rooms, but our character blinds are likely to stay as a focal point for years to come.

 

Fun character blinds

In association with Louvolite and Disney, Starwars™ & Marvel, our new collection of fun character blinds are, like all of our blinds, child-safe as standard. Here at Blind Technique, we take the safety of our customers very seriously. All our blinds come with limitations on cord and chain length, and feature safety devices to prevent cords or chains from creating a dangerous loop.

Bring your children’s favourite characters to life with our new collection of fun character blinds, whether you choose a Disney Princess fabric, Spiderman or even Starwars™.

We have a great new range of fabrics that are perfect for childrens bedrooms, in association with Louvolite and Disney, Starwars™ & Marvel.

Child safe

After a lot of work, it is now illegal to professionally install or supply internal window blinds which do not comply with the child safety requirements of BS EN 13120:2009+A1:2014. Here at Blind Technique, we take responsibility for our customers’ safety very seriously. There have been far too many tragic accidents involving young children and blind cords, so these new laws, alongside public awareness, aim to prevent any further injuries or fatalities. This has now been adopted across EU member states and will, hopefully, follow suit worldwide.

So, what does this mean for Blind Technique?

  • The installation of safe blinds to all homes, regardless of whether babies or children are present or not
  • Limitations on cord and chain lengths
  • Safety devices for preventing any cords or chains from creating a hazardous loop
  • Safety warnings and instructions

All of our products at Blind Technique fall into categories regarding their safety:

  • Products which are inherently safe - our products which fit into this category are: tensioned pleated blinds, spring-controlled roller blinds, wand-operated vertical blinds, Velux and Skylight blinds, perfect-fit roller and pleated blinds, INTU blinds, motorised products, crank-operated blinds, plantation shutters and awnings. This is quite a comprehensive list and none of these products have cords which can form a hazardous loop.
  • Inbuilt Safety Systems - examples of these are chain connectors that will pull apart when a certain force is applied and therefore prevents a loop from being formed. There are still restrictions on the chain and cord length and the minimum distance from the floor. Click below to see examples of these devices.
  • Separate Safety Devices - these are separately installed cord/chain tensioners of cleats which keep unsafe looped safe and away from children. These devices are also shown via the link below and can normally be retrofitted to existing blinds in order to make them safe.

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (ROSPA) recommends that "pull cords on blinds should be kept short and kept out of reach of children."

The following are recommended:

  • Install blinds that do not have a cord, particularly in a child's bedroom
  • Do not place a child's cot, bed, playpen or highchair near a window
  • Pull cords on curtains and blinds should be kept short and kept out of reach
  • Tie up the cords or use one of the many cleats, cord tidies, clips or ties that are available
  • Do not hang toys or objects that could be a hazard on the cot or bed
  • Do not have chain style cords in infants nurseries and childrens' bedrooms
  • Don't hang drawstring bags where a small child could get their head through the loop of the drawstring

Tragically, fatalities still occur in the UK and worldwide every year. When speaking to us about your childrens' bedroom blinds, or any other blinds in your home, we are more than happy to give you all the information and help that you require - just ask us!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Which blinds are safest for my child?

    A motorised blind is a serious consideration for your child’s room, so you can avoid the cords all together. If you don’t want your little one hollering ‘Alexa, open my blind!’ from 10pm to 5am, you can always keep the remote in your room. Or you can simply have a wand operated blind.

  • Which blinds will help my child, and therefore me, sleep?

    Blackout blinds for your little one’s room will help ensure a good night sleep for all concerned. A wide variety of fabrics, colours, textures and styles are available so the little one can still have a sense of fun in their room.

  • Which blinds can withstand a child mistaking them for a toy?

    No blinds should be treated as a toy and in particular, you should familiarise yourself with the child safety guidance we have on our site. Roller blinds are simple to operate, especially when motorised. They are also quite forgiving. With a wide range of colours available, as well as black-out fabrics, your little one will be spoilt for choice.

  • REALLY impressed by every aspect of our order with Blind Technique. The staff were, without exception, readily accessible (a big plus these days), friendly, engaged, and professional. We knew what was going on at every stage and the final outcome is superb; the plantation blinds look and feel well made and have added very positively to the look of the front of our house.

    Great Customer Service

I was looking for some particular blinds for my living room and Jon understood exactly what i was looking for! Very impressed, I already recommended this place to all my neighbours :)

  • Blind Technique did a superb job on the roof blinds for my conservatory. They fit the difficult shape exactly and are easy to draw open or shut. They are a replacement for the blinds the company did years ago, which I have been very pleased with, and I am very happy with the new ones.
