There have been too many occasions when a child has become entangled in the cord of a blind and suffered injury or even died. It is a tragic occurence that can be esaily avoided, especially when the product is compliant with the Australian Product Safety Regulations.
At Classic Blinds and Shutters, we have many products that are cordless, and a system in place for products with chains. Our plantation shutters are completely secured into the window, with no excess cords. Our roller blinds have the option of being manual or motorised, which gives our clients the option to choose the product that best suits their lifestyle. For example, an elderly couple with no children or pets may prefer the chain system, whereas a busy family with four young children and a dog may prefer the motorised option to prevent the blind from breaking or tangling. Our chain system stays in place with a secure lock and cannot be loosened without a screwdriver, which still makes it a suitable option in a chaotic home. The motorised option from Somfy is incredibly useful as it has a remote which can hook onto the wall, and you simply have to press the up or down button. All of our products are compliant with the Product Safety Australia Regulations, and choosing the right product ultimately revolves around what is best suited to your lifestyle and budget.
