Interesting facts about window blinds

My guess is you look at yours every day without considering
where they came from and why you have them hanging in your windows. Window treatments
have a rich history, and can be found in some interesting places. Did you know… 
  1. Venetian
    Blinds were invented by the Persians, not the Venetians. Venetian merchants
    brought them to Europe, and European artists used them in their works, making them extremely popular there in the 15th and 16th centuries. There is also evidence that the Japanese invented Venetian blinds.
  2. The
    earliest form of window treatment was made from animal hide. People who
    lived in warmer climates would soak them in water and allow the wind to
    blow through the wet material, creating an air conditioner-like effect.
  3. There
    is evidence suggesting that ancient Egyptians tied reeds together and hung
    them in openings to create privacy. There is also evidence that the
    Chinese were doing this with bamboo.
  4. Windows
    with slatted blinds were found in Pompeii;
    archaeologists uncovered homes containing unmovable marble slats in the
  5. American
    inventor John Hampson was granted the U.S. patent for the tilt
    mechanism in 1841. Nearly all blinds hanging today operate using this device.
  6. At
    the beginning of the 19th century, many spoke out against the
    use of draperies, saying they were too expensive, too dusty, and too hard
    to make.
  7. In
    1833 it was recommended that window fabrics match other upholstery in the
    room exactly. Ten years later, this concept was thrown out as the “in”
    look, and efforts were made for draperies to simply compliment other upholstery
    in a room.
  8. Draperies
    became exponentially popular in the 19th century, when textiles
    were more readily available due to manufacturing.
  9. Wealthy
    families who could afford it always had “fully dressed” windows: valance, cornice,
    sheer drapery panels on top of opaque panels, hardware, and tiebacks. Today,
    standard draperies include two panels and a rod.

Window blind and child safety

Window blind and child safety

Blinds in crumlin

What to do:
  • Move beds, cots and furniture away from windows.
  • Keep cords and chains out of reach of children.
  • Make your existing blinds or curtains safe – learn how easy it is by watching our video above. Ask your local hardware store if they stock any of the safety items featured in our video.
  • Choose new blinds or curtains carefully – there are now many options available that don’t have cords or chains.
  • Ask the shop if the blind meets the new safety standards - I.S. 387:2012 or I.S. EN 13120:2009.  
  • Check to see if a warning notice is on the blind
  • Check that the blind includes a safety device for keeping the cord out of the reach of children.
  • Check that written instructions for assembly, installation, use and maintenance are provided, and follow them if you are installing the blind yourself.
A word of caution
These tips should help to protect your child from possible serious harm. You should be aware that all risks cannot be eliminated.  Parents and others should always keep window blind cords and chains out of the reach of children and follow the safety instructions.
Using safety devices may reduce the risk of a child being strangled but nothing can be considered risk proof.
