Reviews

FridansVerified ReviewerExcellent blind , with a robust handle, however a few instructions alongside the photographs would have made installation easier.5
Easy to installVerified ReviewerBought for my ensuite, it was easy to install, and looks smart. I like the bar for putting it up and down, much better than having a cord and a good safety feature if you have small children.5
Brilliant black out blind, so easy to roll up and downVerified ReviewerI've now fitted two of these large blinds over the past two years and am about to buy a third for the kitchen. I've tried both ceiling and wall mounted, and find IKEA very practical with tools to help measure accurately, which means they fit well first time. I've used them outside window recesses and the brackets are not too obtrusive. The 'push/pull' rod works well. They provide some thermal insulation and I found them very good value. 5
Manual’s instuctions not correctVerified ReviewerIn the manual in option 3 there’s not enough / correct measurement advice: how much to cut from the blind to fit within the window walls. I am surprised, because I always found IKEA’s manuals very useful and complete.4
Literally the worst ikea product I have ever boughtVerified ReviewerI installed 3 of there and after 2 month, none of them stay up anymore. 1
Disappointed with this blind IVerified ReviewerDisappointed with this blind I bought to replace an older IKEA version. The material is very plastic and creases easily and the mechanism for pulling up and down is not smooth.2
Good blindVerified ReviewerDoes just the job. Easy to lower and raise and no risk of injury to pets or children. Blocks out the light very well.5
BlindsVerified ReviewerJust moved and got these for short term privacy. But everyone admires them, they look good and so easy easy to use, so they will stay permanently. I ordered slightly wider widths for all my windows and find there is no light pollution into the rooms.5
DisappointedVerified ReviewerThis would have worked perfectly if it stayed up. It provides black out but it continues to unravel when it’s down and doesn’t stay up when I don’t need it. Wouldn’t purchase again. Now need to buy another as I can’t get a refund because it has been fitted1
QuestionVerified ReviewerCan anyone please tell me how deep the fittings are? I would like to place another patterned blind in front of this one and need to know whether they will both fit into window frame? Thanks 5
Home wareVerified ReviewerPleased with what I bought5
Nice colour, suitable for coldVerified ReviewerNice colour, suitable for cold weather5

Why we hide the cord in FRIDANS

Children are curious and love to investigate things. These character traits also mean we have to be aware of safety when we decorate our homes. Accessible cords on traditional blinds have been known to cause accidents with children. That’s why we developed FRIDANS block-out roller blind. It has a rod that you use to adjust the blind – a safe solution for children, and functional for all ages.

In 2014, we got an invitation, along with other manufacturers of blinds, to meet with the Consumer Product Safety Commission – a governmental agency in the United States. They wanted to discuss how to prevent accidents with blinds that have accessible cords, and what possibilities there were to create something better. One of our Product Engineers, Bo Zhang, remembers it well. “We decided to immediately stop selling blinds with cords and only sell cordless ones.”

New solution but the same function

The decision meant some frustrated customers who wondered where the traditional blinds had gone. But it also meant that change was on the way. Bo and the team tried several different solutions until they came up with one that provided the same functionality as blinds with visible cords. “We realised we could keep the cord, but hide it,” he explains. The cord is inside a plastic rod that’s expandable and reinforced with strong glass fibre. When you pull it, you adjust the blind. “It’s safe, exact, and still at a low price,” says Bo proudly. The rod has not only been tested by our own lab, but also independent test labs. In addition, customers have checked the functionality. “By involving different people and organisations, we’ve made sure FRIDANS and the rod can meet the toughest demands – in every market,” says Bo. “The rod allows parents to create a safer environment for the youngest family members. When you live with children, that’s one important part of a better life at home,” he finishes.

Function solution

Block-out fabric

The block-out fabric effectively blocks out all light. Perfect for people who are sensitive to light during sleep, anytime of the day. It prevents glare on TV’s and digital screens. It offers complete privacy at all hours since people outside cannot see in, even when the room is lit.
