Health & safety

Cordless operation is a must, whether you choose curtains or blinds; our Zero Gravity and Fast Rise blockout roller blinds are ideal. For children who suffer allergies, choose blinds or lightweight curtains as thicker fabrics collect more dust and particulates. And consider shorter curtains if you’re concerned about your kids pulling on or playing with them.
