Comfort and Safety

Apollo Blinds considers the safety of its window coverings a top priority, and making products safer for homes is an integral part of our design philosophy.

We are committed to adhering to the new European EN 13120 standard as a minimum safety requirement. We are continuously developing new products to help reduce the risk of accidents, and you may have noticed changes to some blinds in line with the new European standard.

General advice

Cord and chain operations

If you prefer a cord or endless chain, safety for your child is increased with extra safety devices. All Apollo Blinds products are supplied with cord or chain safety devices.
