SAFER SHADES

1 Oct 2019
It’s easy to overlook potential hazards for children, especially when their natural curiosity can lead them to explore every crevice and corner of a home. At Rollease Acmeda, child safety is important to us, so we offer a variety of solutions to ensure every home and family is safe from hazardous, loose hanging cords or chains. 
 
The current requirements set by the ACCC dictate that the cord of an internal window covering must never form a loop of 220mm or more, never dangle less than 1.6 metres above floor level and must always be secured by a tensioner or holster. 
 
 
Our range of products offer an innovative suite of child safe solutions that easily comply with these regulations without compromising functionality or design of window furnishings.

Hang Tag & Safety Devices

We offer a safety tag for shade manufacturers to purchase, which legally must be attached to every shade once installed. These tags play a vital role in communicating the potentially hazardous nature of a loose hanging cord in a home and encourages homeowners to ensure all chains and cords are secured to the wall. The installer must ensure this tag is present with every cord or chain-controlled installation. 

We also offer a warning label which manufactures can place on the finished shades once packaged prior to sending out for installation. This puts extra emphasis on the installer to ensure that once this shade product is installed, a safety device must also be fit to secure the hanging cord or chain.

Child Safety Tensioning Guidelines

[as per Trade Practises Regulations] 

To avoid creating a possible strangulation hazard for children, internal window coverings must be installed so that a loose cord cannot form a loop 220mm or longer at a height of less than 1600mm above the floor.
When installing a cord guide or cleat ensure it is installed at the correct height- Directions below must be followed:

I) A cord can be installed lower than 1600mm above floor level if the cord is sufficiently secured or tensioned to prevent a loop of 220mm or more from being formed. 

II) Any cord guide installed lower than 1600mm above the floor level must prevent a child from being able to remove the cord and 

III) If a cleat is used to secure the cord it must be at least 1600mm above floor level because a child is capable of unwinding a cord from a cleat.
