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.
Finding the right window blind for your rooms decor should start with understanding the window treatments that you have to work with. The simplest window blind type is a roller blind, which consists of a flat piece of fabric that is stiffened then wrapped around the wooden roller and attached to the top of the window with brackets. The roller blinds design uses a spring in one end, which allows the blind to be adjusted to any height with the use of a ratchet system. Roller blinds can be made with most fabrics and then have a stiffening agent applied to the fabric which allows easy cleaning with a damp cloth making them great for bathroom and kitchen window blinds. If you’re looking for at luxurious pristine look then a festoon blind will be your choice it has extra fullness and is gathered into a length giving you a rich robust effect. It’s usually made with fine fabric textures like voile, being that this type of blind uses a large amount of fabric it tends to be more expensive. By using a series of cords vertically running through rings and then sewn on the back of the blinds fabric gives the basics to lower and raise several different blind systems.
