New blind cord safety laws and standard EN13120 were released on 31st March to reduce or eliminate strangulation hazards where young children may be present. Looped cords and chains for operating window blinds present a strangulation hazard for young children. RoSPA’s own research shows that there have been at least 15 deaths across the UK due to looped cords since 2010. How does this affect you? Will your blinds comply?
