Child Safety

Child Safety

Window blind cords and chains must be kept out of reach of babies. There are many solutions for new and existing blinds now available. Millions of new blinds are sold in Australia each year in addition to the hundreds of millions already in use. Unfortunately, many children are injured and even killed by blinds in the home each year.

We have designed a new system with child safety designed into the product. This new tension cord system is available for Venetian and Roller Blinds. It requires only simply moving the blinds in position and locking it in place. Our traditional spring roller blinds are always operated without cords or chains, making them ideal for bedrooms and other common rooms in your home.

BrilliantBlind staff will be happy to assist you on the following:
