Since 31st March 2013 all blinds fitted have to conform with new Child Safety Laws, regarding cords and chains.
All our Blinds conform to EN13120 for Child Safety.
However, blinds fitted, before these new laws, were normally fitted with free hanging looped cords and chains, in the case of venetian blinds, very long cords when the Blinds were pulled up.
At Dave Musgrove Blinds we can now make all your existing blinds child-safe for just a minimal cost.
Also, if you are buying new Blinds, we will make any existing blinds you have child-safe free of charge, as a thank you for ordering your new blinds.
So, if you would like all the blinds, new and old, in your house child-safe CALL NOW of fill in the form on this web site for a call back.
Many of my customers have some awe inspiring views across Torbay, and the surrounding areas of South Devon. A common question I get asked is “will these blinds not spoil my view?”.
This picture showing a great peep of Torquay harbour gives a perfect example and how fitting vertical blinds doesn’t have to spoil your beautiful view. You can turn to any angle to filter or block the sun. Or simply tilt at just the right angle to maintain privacy, but still be able to enjoy the view.
Thinking about saving money by investing in some of the cheap “plastic” venetian blinds on the market?
These blinds can be purchased for anything between £10 & £25. However, proper venetian blinds have steel top & bottom rails, and aluminium slats.
The “plastic” versions are all plastic, including the headrails. I have often been called out to repair a blind and got there to find a “plastic” venetian, where the headrail has snapped under the strain of the blind. Unfortunately there is no repair. These “plastic” blinds also do not like the sun. “Plastic” venetian blinds that gets regular exposure to the sun will warp & buckle within just a few short months. So be warned, “plastic” venetian blinds are a false economy, and now you know why!
Here at Dave Musgrove Blinds I supply & fit blinds for all types of Skylight windows. We have Velux & Fakro blinds as well as our own version of the same thing, which are a little less expensive than the originals.
These blinds are available as Rollers, Venetian & Pleated with various levels of light filtration, all the way to blackout.
Perfect Fit Blinds are a great solution where space is at a premium and you have uPVC windows or doors.
The perfect fit system requires no drilling or screws. The specially designed brackets simply slot into the beading of a uPVC window or door, then the frame, complete with blind, simply slots into the brackets.
The frame blends into the frame of the window or door and to suit various window colours comes in white, silver, brown, golden oak and mahogany.
Perfect Fit are available as Pleated, Roller, 25mm Venetian and 25mm Wooden venetian Blinds. The accompanying photo is of two Perfect Fit Pleated Blinds, recently fitted in Paignton.
Here is a picture of 1 of 7 Senses roller blinds, fitted for a customer in Bovey Tracey.
Senses roller blinds come in an enclosed cassette, with an aluminium fascia in white, black, bronze, brown, cream or silver. Alternatively, the fascia can be covered in either a matching, or contrasting fabric.
The main feature of the Senses roller blind is the slow rise spring system. This system, which is fully adjustable for speed and tension, allows you to pull down and lock the blind in position and then release it and it slowly rises on it’s own.
Also the Senses system is the only roller blind system to fully address concerns over safety. Young children can be in danger of strangulation from pull cords, chains and bead cords. This chain & cord free system tackles this worrying problem.
