Roman Blinds Bristol Child Safety BS EN13120Child Safety Legislation BS EN13120

Due to the recent change in safety regulations every Roman Blind must now comply with the new Child Safety Legislation BS EN13120.  As a Roman Blind maker Calico Blinds are bound to ensure that compliant safety devices are used and that the finished blinds meets the new regulations. These regulations are as follows: 

  • Internal breakaway mechanism so no breakaway devices or safety boxes needed - chains can be 60 cm from the floor
  • Cord breakaway clips are used on the back of the blind on the bottom 2 rows finished with a cord toggle.
  • All finished Roman Blinds will be labelled with the regulations and have a child safety device attached so each finished Roman Blind will be sent out fully compliant

*With a shorter chain it may take longer to operate your blind.  Later this year following compliant safety testing a 'Chain Safety Breakaway' device will be available allowing you to have a longer chain.  This will be available free of charge.
