About 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.

The BBSA has been instrumental in leading the campaign for safer window blinds in the UK via its Make it Safe campaign
