Did you know, that since April 2014, all Blinds fitted have to comply with British Safety Standard EN13120 for Child Safety. This means all looped cords & chains have to be secured at a safe height and all single cords tied off to a cleat, again at a safe height.
This week I fitted some Wooden Venetians for a customer in Preston Paignton. Some of the windows provided awkward fitting situations. However, after consulting with the builders, renovating the property, they made necessary adjustments to enable me to successfully fit the Blinds. If you have an awkward window, don’t…

Wooden Curtain Poles, as in the pictures of a 3.5 metre pole fitted in Paignton, add a classy finishing touch to any window. Wooden poles come in a variety of colours and thickness, depending on your specific requirements. I also supply and fit a wide range of metal poles, as…
