What is The BBSA and why are we members?


We are immensely proud to say that ShuttersUp are members of The British Blind and Shutter Association (BBSA). This is your assurance of the highest possible standards of workmanship, service, and fair trading.

Before joining the BBSA, prospective members must undergo a strict vetting procedure to earn the BBSA’s accreditation of blind, awning or shutter specialist. Members must show things like a sound financial history, a commitment to training as well as appropriate health and safety standards and in-place quality systems.

The vetting process is strict, but it means that as members, you can work with us safe in the knowledge that we are operating to the highest standards of quality and workmanship. With the back-up of the national trade association for window blinds, awnings, and shutters.

Why can customers trust BBSA members?
BBSA members are:

  • Fully insured.
  • Committed to training.
  • Committed to child safety.
  • Up to date with regulations and best practice.
  • Offered a free mediation service in the unlikely event it is needed.
  • We abide by the BBSA strict code of conduct.

All BBSA members are part of the BBSA’s ‘make it safe’ campaign. The BBSA and its members are fully committed to helping to eliminate the risk associated with hazardous looped operating chords, chains and tapes used on window blinds. Window shutters are the most child-safe window covering you can buy.

The British Blind and Shutter Association is the only national trade association for companies like ours that manufacturer shutters and associated motor and control systems, as well as companies that supply and install interior and exterior blinds, awnings, and security grilles.

Plus, the BBSA is the single largest source of information covering the solar shading industry, a topic that ShuttersUp are particularly interested in as our window shutters offer great solar shading and passive cooling benefits to homeowners.

Did you know? ShuttersUp were awarded ‘highly commended’ within the best internal shutter installation category at the 2022 BBSA Excellence Awards.
