Loop cords and chains on window blinds pose a strangulation risk for young children and there have been a number of tragic accidents involving children in Ireland in recent years. This has raised safety concerns about window blinds in homes and places where children visit.
The 3 new standards that have been published are:
‘Internal blinds – Performance requirements including safety’ – This standard amends the previously existing European standard (EN13120) which was published in 2009. It specifies the requirements that internal blinds should fulfil when they are fitted to a building. The amendment expands the scope to cover many types of blinds, while expanding the clause on ‘protection from strangulation; to address specific hazards posed by cords.
Internal blinds – Protection from strangulation hazards – ‘Test methods’ – This is a new standard that specifies test methods which can be used to verify that a window blind conforms to the requirements relating to protection from strangulation.
‘Internal blinds – protection from strangulation hazards – Requirements and Test methods for safety devices’ – This standard specifies the safety requirements for test methods for safety devices that can help to improve the safety of window blinds and prevent accidents. These safety devices can be fitted to window blinds during the manufacturing process or alternatively fitted to window blinds that have already been installed.
Here are some simple steps that can be taken immediately to remove any potential hazards from existing blinds and help to prevent tragic accidents and fatalities in the home:
Cords ending in a loop are particularly risky. If possible, cut the cord to get rid of the loop and install tassels;
Cords should end at least 1.5 metres above the ground so children cannot reach them. Replace cords with curtain or blind wands;
Where cords cannot be cut, a tie-down or tension device should be used to pull the cord tight and secure it to the floor or wall;
Never place a child’s cot, bed, playpen or high chair near a window or patio door where a child could reach a curtain or blind cord;
Keep sofas, chairs, tables, shelves or bookcases away from windows to prevent children climbing up and reaching curtain or blind cords
Want to know the best ways to keep your Roller blind looking pristine?
It’s a question we’re often asked at Right Price Blinds so we’ve put together this handy little guide on caring for your Roller Blinds!
Roller blinds are a really great choice for high usage areas, especially if you choose a wipe clean performance fabric, which is specially designed for these areas – such as kitchens, bathrooms and children’s bedrooms.
No matter how clean your home is, there will always be a certain amount of dust particles that find their way to rest on your blinds, but unlike curtains, you don’t generally have to take your blinds down to clean them – phew!
Even if you don’t have a specialist wipe clean fabric, it is easy to keep your standard Roller blind clean and fresh.
Tips for Cleaning Roller Blinds
Firstly – Clear the area around your window sill and open your blind down fully
Vacuum – If your vacuum cleaner has a dust attachment start off by using this to remove as much dust and dirt as possible. Vacuum from top to bottom on both sides of the fabric.
Damp clean –Never try to wash fabric blinds because it might cause their dye to run. Instead, after spot testing for colorfastness, use a damp (not wet) microfibre cloth to wipe away heavier dirt.
Stubborn Stain Removal – If you cannot remove a stain with water alone, try using a fabric stain removal product. Simply treat the stained area following the manufacturer instructions. Warning! While this is an effective cleaning method there is a possibility that the treated area of the blind may look lighter than the rest of the blind, depending on the colour/texture of the fabric.
Once you’ve given your blinds a good clean, make dusting them a part of your weekly cleaning routine and give them a bit of extra attention two or three times a year!

Right Price Blinds…changing the world one window at a time
While neutral shades of cream, white and beige have always been a popular choice for clients, we’ve noticed a distinct shift away from the ‘safe’ choices and colour is back with a bang for 2018!
Zesty yellows, citrus greens and burnt oranges are hugely popular this summer and offer a real pop of colour to transform any room. They especially work well with more neutral wall shades such as grey, cream and mochas.
“We’re definitely noticing people are being a lot more adventurous now with their choices when it comes to colours and patterns” says Colin Higgins of Right Price Blinds, “and it’s not just roller blinds that are getting more colourful, we’re noticing the same trend with our Venetian, Vertical and Roman Blinds range.”
And why not – who said blinds have to be for life?! With the great value available in window blinds today, life is too short to be stuck with boring blinds!
So if whether you’re building, renovating or just in need of a spruce up, for a no obligations quotation, call Right Price Blinds on 087 1606509 or see our website www.rightpriceblinds.com
According to the paint brand Dulux, the shade for 2018 is a muted heather-grey.
The company has declared that its colour of the year for 2018 is Heart Wood, which sits somewhere between smoky taupe and dusky mauve. It’s a warm neutral with a hint of heather and although most people think of neutrals as being black, white, grey, brown and beige, this versatile shade also fits the bill.
80 colour experts meet together with professionals including social and economic forecasters as well as architects and tech leaders to pin down ‘the mood of the moment’
They consider what is happening in the world and how we behave – like where we go on holiday, what we’re buying, any political or wellbeing influences and their conclusion this year was of ‘instability’
“We don’t trust the news, we don’t know what’s going to happen next,
we have divisions in our society and it’s affecting how we’re living”
“So, we are taking comfort in our home, where we can feel safe, secure and nurtured.
We can control how it looks, who comes there and how we interact with the world from it”
Heart Wood links perfectly with many textures and materials and is a useful addition to the existing trend for nude pink, deep indigo and warm metals like copper and brass, but more conventionally, it also works well with off-white or soft beige.
