Kid Safe Window Coverings

October 10, 2017

Kids Safe Window Treatments


October is National Window Covering Safety Month!!

Did you know that window coverings can be a beautiful but hidden danger that many parents may overlook. Children are susceptible to injuries and even deaths by cords from some window coverings. Kid safe window coverings come in a variety of beautiful fashions that pose no risk to your family. The Window Covering Safety Council (WCSC) and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) are urging consumers to check their window coverings for exposed or dangling cords which can pose a strangulation hazard to infants and young children.

Window Cord Safety – What to Look For…
Children and window covering cords don’t mix. When cords are accessible to small children, these seemingly harmless products may become strangulation hazards. This is especially important with older window coverings that may not meet the latest national standard for window cord safety.

If you have corded window coverings and can’t replace them with today’s safer products, check for the follow hazards:

  • Move all cribs, beds, furniture and toys away from windows and window cords, preferably to another wall.
  • Make sure that tasseled pull cords are as short as possible.
  • Continuous-loop cords on draperies and vertical blinds should be permanently anchored to the floor or wall.
  • Keep all window cords well out of the reach of children. Eliminate any dangling cords.
  • Check that cord stops are properly installed and adjusted to limit the movement of inner lift cords.

What does it mean when window covering boxes say “child safe” on them?

  • This means the product complies with the WCMA/ANSI (Window Coverings Manufacturers Association) standard.

If a product complies with the WCMA/ANSI safety standard does that mean its safe?

  • Not entirely! This safety standard is developed and written by the manufactures. Long operational or pull cords, accessible inner cords and faulty tension devices all comply with the most current 2014 WCMA/ANSI safety standard.

How can I tell if a window covering is safe for children?

  • If the window covering has no accessible cords, front and back, it is safe.

If at all possible, use only cordless window coverings in homes where infants and young children are present.

From shutters to retractable lift cords to wand controls and even motorized operating systems, Danmer offers a wide array of child proof, 100% non-toxic materials and finishes with our shutters and other window covering options.  This ensures safety with no harmful toxic effects, cords or other hazzards. To learn more, download our Child Safety Brochure or contact us for an In Home Design Consultation and learn more about our child safety blind and shade options. For the month of October, Danmer is offering FREE Upgrades making your blinds and shades Kid-Safe and Cordless.

Child Safety is a Top priority

September 12, 2016
blog-kid-safe

We all know what it’s like when kids are being kids: they’re curious, imaginative, and full of more energy than we can remember having at that age. But as cherished as their rambunctiousness can be at that age, it can also be troublesome — or even dangerous — if it’s let loose in an unsafe environment.

Though they can seem harmless at first glance, even the most basic window coverings and dangling cords can pose a lethal threat to young children. That’s why Danmer fashions products specifically designed to keep your infants, children, and pets safe, and to help avoid often-overlooked pitfalls such as these ones.

With that in mind, Danmer designs and manufactures window coverings with a number of key safety features to keep your little ones out of harm’s way, including:

  • Retractable lift cords
  • Cord tensioners
  • Wand controls
  • Cordless & motorized operating systems
  • Custom Shutters (cordless by design)

Danmer takes your family’s needs very seriously. That’s why we strive for Elegance, Value, and Safety in every product: That’s the Danmer Difference. Contact us at (800) 684-3434 for a FREE in-home consultation, and to explore the safest, most stylish window coverings for your home.

CHILD SAFETY WITH SHUTTERS AND BLINDS

June 11, 2016

Screen Shot 2016-06-13 at 2.22.15 PMIf you have a small child at home, safety in every room is a priority.  Young children have a very inquisitive nature so one thing you can do to insure a safe environment for the little ones is to have window treatments that won’t cause them any harm.  Check out this YouTube video at Parents For Window Blind Safety for some tips when child-proofing your windows with small children in your home. Here are a few things to know:

  • Stay away from bulky blinds that can fall easily and get entangled with the young ones
  • Make sure your shutters and blinds aren’t coated in any harmful dyes, paints or stains
  • There are plenty of cordless alternatives or motorized systems for window treatments that can eliminate the risk of being exposed to dangerous cords

Danmer has a wide variety of safe, child-proof options for the window treatments within your home. Our goal is to reduce the risk of child endangerment with any window covering products.  With child safety in mind, we offer plenty of nonhazardous ways to enhance your home to its fullest potential.
