Child safety blind cords- revised standards

In light of the EU Commission Decision of 27 July 2011,the standard for internal blinds, EN 13120, is under revision.
Some of the key changes for internal blinds operated by cords, ball-chains or similar that may form a hazardous loop will be:

  • New requirements, including restrictions on the length of the operating cords or ball-chains, and related tests to verify that no hazardous loops can be formed
  • Safety warnings on products and in instruction leaflets
  • Requirements for name or trademark of manufacturer or importer and professional installer to be displayed on the product
  • New requirements related to safety devices to be integrated in complete internal blinds as well as delivered as such for the retrofit market.
