- Product Descriptions
6.1 The product information and photographs contained within our website are provided for basic guidance and illustrative purposes only.
6.2 We strongly advise all customers to obtain a free sample prior to placing an order. If after viewing your sample you are in any doubt as to the precise nature or finish of any of our products please contact us for further information.
6.3 Whilst every attempt will be made by us to ensure that the goods sold and delivered match in every respect any sample or description, any minor or immaterial variation between the sample or description and goods delivered shall not entitle you to reject the goods nor to claim any compensation for such variation. For example;
- due to the print design of some pattern fabrics it is not guaranteed the samples will reflect the full range of colours in the pattern or the full pattern design.
- in the case of all Venetian blind ranges some slat colours require co-ordinating head/base rails, tapes or cords. These will complement the slatting colour and should not detract from the overall appearance of the product.
- wood venetian slatting will have some colour variation from batch to batch due to the inherent properties of this natural material.
6.4 Over long periods of time slight differences in colour will occur between different batches of material. Such differences shall not constitute grounds for a customer to refuse or return products. We advise customers to order multiple blinds to be installed in the same room or window at the same time to ensure they are cut from the same batch of material and will colour match.

- Child Safety
Regulations have been introduced to reduce the strangulation risk to small children posed by blind cords. We supply child safety devices with all our blinds and aim to manufacture cords to hang at least 150cm from the floor. Whilst we do our best to ensure all blinds we manufacture have these child safety features it is up to the person installing the blinds to:
- fit the child safety devices correctly
- to check that the bottom of any cords at are least 150cm away from the floor
If child safety devices have not been supplied or the cords are hanging too low once the blinds are installed please contact us for assistance.
