The cord on my Velux blackout blind wore through plastic runners of the blinds. The problem only became apparent after 4-5 years when the cord frayed on the sharp edges and jammed the blind.

I said I wasn't to know the fixings would be bigger and not fi

I then asked them for an option to stain the edges of the blinds that was not shown on their website (I knew it was available from the factory supplying them). They confirmed the extra option was available but I had to amend my order by phone after placing the order. They sounded very decent over the phone and have a load of positive reviews on Trustpilot.
