Blinds and Child Safety

29th February 2012

Blinds and child safety is something we take very seriously here at The Pole Company.  We would like to take the opportunity to talk to you about how we address the issue here, but firstly we send out or deepest sympathies to the families of the poor children who recently died as a result of blind cord accidents.  This tragic events are a horrible thing to have happened and many of our staff with young families of their own are shaken by the news.

Child safety is something every parent knows a lot about and blind cords are unfortunately a hidden danger due to their heightened risk of strangulation.  At The Pole Company we take every opportunity to ensure your blinds are safe and child friendly.  As we work with some of the UK’s biggest blind companies such as Luxaflex, we aim to meet their high standard of safety.  We also work within the British Blinds and Shutter Association (BBSA) for more on their safety tips and awareness please follow this link Make it safe blinds.

During our personal consultations we aim to advise not only the best quality of service but also the safest approach.  All our shop staff are highly trained to manage product safety and have years of experience to help in every situation.

In light of these tragic events we are now increasing our blind safety promotion with leaflets and posters in our shop.  We also welcome anyone who would like to know more about this topic to contact us or to visit our shop.  We are passionate about all of our products and services and this aspect is no different, so please don’t hesitate to ask about safety.
