Child-safety devices

Our products that have cords and chains come with child-safety devices. These devices may have breakaway tassels, consolidators, or clips that snap under pressure. The child-safety devices must be attached to the wall or the window to a height of at least 1.5 meters from the floor.

  • Our chain operated Roller blinds, Z-lites/Duo & Romans are provided with a cleat.
  • Our Venetian blinds are provided with a breakaway cord consolidator and a cleat to wrap the excess cord around.
  • Our Vertical blinds are wand operated.

In order for Starblinds to provide the correct child safety device for each product the following instructions must be followed:

When measuring blinds three measurements must be taken:

  • Exact width of the blind,
  • Exact drop of the blind
  • For child safety, the installation height is regarded as the most important measurement. The installation height is the height at which the blind is to be installed from the ground/Floor level as all cords should be 1.5 meters from the ground/Floor level.

Starblinds cannot be held liable for incorrect installation height provided by the buyer

The safety devices must be fitted in accordance with the latest European regulations. It is a mandatory step.
