Internal window blinds can pose a risk to babies and small children who could injure or strangle themselves on looped operating cords and chains. Every blind leaving the Oceanair factory meets current child safety regulations, but we have gone the extra mile to produce a range of blinds that go above and beyond these standards.
When choosing new blinds for homes or places where babies or small children live or visit, always choose an Oceanair blind that does not contain cords or chains or has concealed cords, such as in the examples below.
SKYVENETIAN Alloy Precision
Oceanair's first Venetian blind, free from operating cords!
Available across the Oceanair range (including SKYSOL, SKYVENETIAN, SKYSCREEN, ROMANBLIND, Curtains and Roller Collection) powered blind systems are the safest option, with no operating cords or chains.
Dependent on blind type, Oceanair safety devices will be fitted as standard.
Our range of Oceanair cleats, including chrome with white or black insert, plus our new cord tidy, available in chrome or brushed nickel:
Our Roman blind cord breaker system has been developed to allow the fabric cording at the back of the blind to collapse under any overdue pressure. This is a significant development in the development of our child safe range, with brightly coloured Roman blinds being a popular choice for children's rooms.
