Child safety

Young children can strangle in the loop of pull cords, chains that operate window coverings. They can also wrap cords around their necks. To avoid strangulation and entanglement, keep cords out of the reach of young children. Move beds, cots and furniture away from windows covering cords.

“Complete elimination of the strangulation risk can only be achieved by keeping cords, chains, tapes and similar out of the reach of children. Use of additional safety devices may reduce the risk of strangulation but cannot be considered foolproof. Persons in charge of children are ultimately responsible for following the safety instructions provided by the manufacturer.” EN 13120
