Safety is our priority
We are aware of the dangers posed by some corded indoor window blinds, and have always produced high-quality products that meet government regulations and community standards.
All of our products meet the new Consumer Product Safety Standard covering corded internal window coverings, which came into effect in July 2010. You can rest easy that Viewscape blinds are safe for you and your family.
The Regulations provide national regulatory requirements to replace existing State and Territory regulatory requirements. These Regulations apply to corded internal window coverings supplied after 30 December 2010.
In addition to meeting the requirements for package safety warnings, Viewscape ensures our products meet the practical safety requirements of blinds, particularly in relation to:
- Ensuring the blinds remain in place if subjected to pulling on the cord for 10 seconds as described in the Regulations
- Supplying equipment and instructions to prevent the possibility of a cord forming a loop 220 mm or longer at a height of less than 1600 mm above floor level
Viewscape ensures that all our products meet the various Australian Standards to ensure that the risk of looped blind cords is minimised. All products and components supplied by us meet Australian Standards and Regulations.
