Young children have died by wrapping loose curtain and blind cords or chains around their necks. In an attempt to prevent such deaths and to further educate consumers of this threat, all Suntex blinds have been fitted with a warning device as required by federal law.
Blinds with cords or chains must be installed with safety devices such as cleats and chain tensioners. These devices are provided with every Suntex blind which has a cord or chain. Cords and chains should not be in the reach of young children, move cots and furniture away from windows.
This is a serious concern to the safety of young Australians. For more information download the Australian Government Legislation.
