The British Blind & Shutter Association (BBSA)

About The BBSA

"The British Blind and Shutter Association (BBSA) is the only national trade association for companies that manufacture, supply and install interior and exterior blinds, awnings, security grilles and shutters and associated motor and control systems.

The Association takes a leading role to ensure high standards of product, service and fair trading throughout the trade. Each member must adhere to a Code of Practice and is kept updated with changes to standards, requirements and best practice via regular communications.

The BBSA is the single largest source of information covering the solar shading industry and the sections of this website will demonstrate the benefits of the products the industry offers along with the advantages of using a BBSA member."

Why use a BBSA member?

Simply, it is your assurance of the highest standards of quality, workmanship, service, fair trading and child safety.

Before joining the British Blind and Shutter Association (BBSA) prospective members have to undergo a strict vetting procedure. Prospective members need to have been trading for a minimum of three years, have a sound financial history, a commitment to training and appropriate health and safety standards and quality systems in place.

Sometimes mistakes happen and membership of the BBSA requires members to handle customer complaints quickly and appropriately in line with the BBSA’s Code of Practice. In the case of an unresolved dispute you can request the BBSA to investigate on your behalf. Complaints against members are rare showing both a robust selection procedure and an assurance that there is a strict adherence to the BBSA’s Code of Practice.

So you can buy from members of the BBSA safe in the knowledge that they are operating to the highest standards of quality and workmanship with the back-up of the only national trade association for window blinds, awnings and shutters. Visit the BBSA website for more information.
