Let us look at the technical aspects of Matchstick blinds. These have an attached pulley system. It consists of a string which threads the wood sticks together. When pulled or let go, it rolls up or down the blinds. Additionally there are strings which go along the length to keep all the individual sticks in place. The pulley system is put up at the top of the blinds so that it doesn’t show up and spoil the look of the blinds. Most blinds will come with a header section (in some cases made of bamboo itself) to cover all this up.
Matchstick blinds are priced nominally between $15 and $ 50 per blind. So these are ideal for people looking for beautiful decoration at an affordable price. But, today a lot of people are using these just because of their chic, upscale appeal. After all, these are used in most resorts and conservatories to blend in with the natural surroundings.
Recently there has tragically been a number of deaths of young children attributed to strangulation by blind cords. Various high-profile organizations up to government level have come onboard to support a campaign called ’Make it Safe’ initiated by the BBSA, the British Blind and Shutter Association, of which Blind Technique are members. This campaign aims to eliminate the risk of strangulation with looped blind cords and controls through education, keeping these cords away from children at all times or if not possible by introducing various safety designs which mitigate the risk. It is highlighted that the only sure way to totally eliminate the risk is to keep all control cords out of reach, and to otherwise fit blinds without any non-control looped tapes, cords or designs.
