When selecting new window coverings for your home, child safety should be the most important consideration.
Cords used to open and close blinds present a hazard to young children and need to be secured at all times and out of reach from little hands.
At Sunway, style and safety go hand in hand with cord and chain child safe options available across all of our interior window coverings.

At Sunway we have options across all of our interior window coverings including motorised cellular shades or roller blinds, cordless cellular blind options, effortless light lift roller blinds or wand control vertical blinds.

To help ensure the well-being and safety of your children and pets, we have collated some simple tips for you.
Ensure your chain or corded window coverings comply with government regulations, so when installed, check for the
- Installed with warning label swing tags to remind you of dangers to children. Although unslightly this so not be removed.
- Installed with the approved chain/cord tensioner or cord cleat that secures the chain or cord out of reach from little hands.
Move anything a young child can sit in, stand-in, or climb on away from windows that have cords or chains. These include cots, highchairs, beds, sofas, tables, chairs and bookshelves.
TIP: Also check for loose or looped cords that your child can reach from the floor or by climbing on furniture.
When selecting your window covering, opt for operating systems which don’t require cords or chains such as the Light Lift roller blind option or the Cellular Cordless option as shown here.
