Louvreties: Product design for legislation compliance

With the help of our Innovation Clinic team, Louvreties launched a safe and compliant tie-back product.

The Brief:

To develop an intuitive and fit for purpose tie-back product that would comply with legislative changes within the domestic and commercial window blind sector.

Result:

  • Multifunctional product that can be used solely as a cord-safety device or complemented with the addition of a tie-back arm, providing a versatile, modular solution.
  • Approved by the Bureau Veritas in November 2019, having undergone strict mechanical and material testing.

Feedback:

"The Clinic helped with the design work of the new concept that was critical up to the point of manufacturing a tool and ensured all the functionality and style criteria was met and possible in one moulding tool. A new patent has been applied for and will be the fourth attributed to the concept."
