Edge Trims: Protect Your Child From the Dangers of Uncovered Edges

Children are naturally curious beings and it can be challenging to keep an eye on them all the time. They like to run, crawl, sprint and jump and the moment you look away they are likely to fall or hit their heads.

Childhood Accidents and Statistics

According to The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), more than two million children under the age of 15 experience accidents in and around the home every year. The most at risk are children from 0-4 years old. Most of these accidents can be prevented through increased awareness, improvements in the home environment and greater product safety.

Childproofing your Home

A child’s security equates to a parent’s happiness. Here are some simple suggestions to turn your home into a child-safe zone:

Don’t leave small items on the ground

Make sure your floor is regularly vacuumed and put away small items that a child could potentially choke on.

Install safety gates

Safety gates before the stairs can save your child from falling down the steps. They can also prevent your child from accessing off-limit areas around the home.

Use edge trims to cover the sharp edges of your furniture

Since children are prone to bumping their heads on anything that stands in their way, you can prevent bruises and cuts by placing PVC edge trims around the sharp edges of the furniture.

Advantages of using edge trims

PVC edge trims are durable cushioned materials used for raw edges. Useful on furniture, they are usually made of metal, wood, plastic and other hard materials. Here are some of the advantages of edge trims:

  • Easy installation – edge trims are self-gripping; they provide a strong hold that won’t peel off easily.
  • Flexible – they can slide on to edges effortlessly and can handle tight spiral applications.
  • Impact-absorbent – they can act as a cushion that can effectively soften an impact.
  • Made to last – PVC edge trims are made with highly durable materials that can withstand wear and tear.
