Child Safety

illumin8 – Making it Safe! Free Child Safety Harness

Over 20 million new blinds are sold in the UK each year in addition to the hundreds of millions already in use. Unfortunately, many children are injured and even killed by blinds in the home each year.

Recent statistics from the US indicate that at least one child per month dies as a result of strangulation from blind cords. In the UK, (Where safety regulations are not as advanced as in the US), four children were reported to have suffered the same fate in the last eighteen months.
The good news is that many of these incidents can easily be prevented by using one of the new child safety devices available on the market today. illumin8 are very eager to ensure we minimize the risk of a child sustaining any form of injury so have implemented several design features into the manufacture of all their products. Also, as older products are replaced by new, the element of danger is becoming vastly reduced.
