Child Safe Blinds And Curtains
Kresta is especially mindful of the issues of child safety when it comes to window coverings. The loops of pull cords, chains and bead cords are a potential hazard to young children who may become entangled in them. To avoid this possibility, Kresta would like to share some ideas on keeping your children away from potential harm.
Keep your windows child-safe
Keep babies’ cots well away from windows, and ensure that all blind and curtain cords are out of reach. This may mean not placing furniture next to windows – toddlers love climbing!
Reduce the hazard
It is important to be aware at all times of child safety around the home. An extra safety measure is the installation of a safety device that either removes the cord loop or limits access to cords. A tension device (either a chain tensioner or cleat) can be anchored to the wall or floor so that young children cannot play with cords or put them around their neck.
Install Kresta’s Child Safe range
Kresta’s unique SafeTrak® and range eliminate the need for potentially dangerous cords and chains in your home. This helps create a safer environment for children and pets, as well as providing easy, practical light control.
