The standard affecting internal window blinds has been significantly revised in relation to child safety requirements. The changes to EN 13120 which came into effect in 2014 will require:

  1. Limitations on cord and chain lengths
  2. Safety devices for preventing cords and chains from creating a hazardous loop
  3. The fitting of safety devices on cords and chains at the point of manufacture
  4. The testing of all safety critical components of internal window blinds
  5. The testing of complete blinds using safety devices

At Norwood Interiors we place paramount importance on Child Safety in our customer's homes, aiming to ensure the potential hazards posed by unrestrained cords and chains are understood and eliminated. In line with legislation, we have carefully considered each blind on an individual basis, to ensure child safety is an essential feature of the product.
