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.

Use Shutters Custom Made to Control Light in Your Bedroom

August 22, 2017
shutters-wood-white-perfect-view-traditional-bedroom

It never fails, the one morning all week that you get to actually sleep in an extra hour, the sun is perky and peeking through your window. If you have cheap blinds or curtains, there is no way to block all the rays out so you either have a glare directly in your face or bouncing off your mirror. Even if you have no glare, your room is probably too bright to sleep and the room temperature is likely too warm to be comfortable. Sleeping in wouldn’t be a problem if you had custom window treatments such as custom shutters.

Having Shutters Custom Made is Good for Your Health

Our custom shutters fit right in with many interior design themes and come in a range of custom colors and stains to match your home décor goals. They are easy to open, easy to clean, durable, and look great from the outside as well.

Wider louvers provide the best view outside while giving you optimal light control and privacy in your home. When closed, the shutters provide complete privacy and block out sunlight and heat offering temperature control.

How to Choose the Best Custom Window Shutters for Your Home

July 25, 2017
Arched Shutters in Dining Room

How to Choose the Best Custom Window Shutters
So you’re committed to improve your home and you’ve decided to purchase new window shutters. Where do you begin? Danmer Custom Shutters strongly suggests you use these 8 important questions to help guide you through your shutter shopping experience.

Are the shutters custom made for me?
Make sure your shutters are hand-crafted to your exact speficications, including color, finish and size to ensure your shutters fit your window flawlessly and match your décor. Danmer’s genuine custom shutters are made from the ground up to fit your size and shape of window, and made to match your décor…no exceptions!

How to Choose Between Wood and Poly or Faux-Wood Shutters?
There will always be homeowners who insist on wood shutters. But one alternative you should ask for is Thermalite™ Shutters. Unlike wood shutters, Thermalite will NEVER peel, crack, warp, burn, or discolor. They don’t lose tension so they work perfectly for many years. And the water-based finish insures safety with no harmful toxic effects.

How Fast Can I Get My Shutters?
Danmer is the shutter manufacturer, right here in California. This gives us the ability to install your custom shutters faster than anyone else in the industry. Many companies only assemble parts manufactured overseas, which can take weeks to arrive. Danmer shutters can be installed in as little as 3 days from your measuring appointment+.

Are You Fully Licensed and Insured?
The Contractors State License Board regulates California contractors, while investigating over 20,000 complaints each year. Ask any shutter company about their installers: Will the person who installs your shutters be licensed, bonded, insured, factory trained and certified? Do they have a minimum 10 year track record installing shutters? Danmer’s license is #574304 and we’ve NEVER had a complaint filed gainst our installers with the CSLB.

What’s The Right Shutters For My Home Environment?
The Thermalite™ Shutter Insulating System was created to reduce energy consumption in your home, insulating your windows up to 3x better than wood shutters, keeping your house warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. Thermalite is made of a non-toxic material that’s flame retardant, water resistant,and produces very low VOCs.

Why Is Made in USA Important?
Danmer Custom Window Shutters are manufactured and assembled right here in the USA. We believe that investing in your home is an investment in rebuilding America. Other companies will also claim that their products are made in the USA, but in reality many are only assembled in the USA from foreign manufactured parts. Danmer shutters are produced here in the USA using safe and reliable materials.

Why Is 24/7 Customer Service Important?
Make sure to ask if the shutter company provides customer service 7 days a week, 24 hours a day to address any questions that may arise. Also ask your shutter company if they provide their customers with online order status, so you can see your from start to finish.

Why Is The Warranty Important?
Here’s what to look for in the fine print: insist on a custom window shutter warranty that’s actually transferable to the NEXT homeowner. A transferable warranty is desirable because it will likely increase the resale value of your home. Trust a company that will give you a copy of the warranty; that’s the Danmer Difference. Custom Window Shutters have gone through a remarkable transformation in the last few decades, with product and service options that you ought to know about before you make a shutter decision. You shouldn’t have to jump through hoops to get your shutter company to tell you about the full range of options available. You deserve straight answers in a timely manner so that you can make the best shutter choice for you and your family.

Are your projects helping building the value of your home? Or hurting it? 

June 6, 2017
Thermalite Shutters

Home improvement season is in full swing, and homeowners everywhere are taking on projects as small as replacing kitchen tiles, to as large as full basement renovations.  But what many homeowners don’t realize, is that not all home improvements help the overall resale value of a house.  In fact, some can actually hurt it.

Since some home improvement projects tend to be inspired by fleeting seasonal trends, it’s good to make sure that they can be easily and inexpensively updated down the road, if the trend, for whatever reason, doesn’t catch on.  Otherwise, it’s always a safe bet to limit big projects to carefully planned, and universally functional improvements that will always be in demand, in case you should you ever choose to sell your home.

One of the best home improvement projects worth undertaking is a window treatment upgrade.  Window Shutters, a fine example of function meeting design, can give a room an elegant, timeless look and feel, and can compliment any decor.  Danmer’s Shutters, such as those from the UltraLuxe Shutters and Thermalite shutters, include a very unique added benefit: each comes with a transferable warranty, which increases the value of your home, and can earn you more money if you ever decide to sell it.

Whatever home improvement projects you may be tackling this season, be sure to do plenty of research before starting, and consult industry professionals with any questions you may have.  If your improvements should happen to include new window treatments, Danmer is here for you ever step of the way.  Contact us at (800) 684-3434 to get started.

Shutters Are Not All The Same

May 18, 2017
danmer-sale

Ordering custom window treatments can be a bit daunting!  With so many styles, colors, and varieties, it can be hard to determine which would be best for your home.  The best tip? ALWAYS consult with an industry professional before making such a decision, but here’s some advice to help you separate the outstanding from the inferior:

  • Many shutter companies claim their products are made in the USA, but in reality, most of them are built from foreign parts and only assembled in the USA. Ask about this!
  • Several shutter companies use materials that are not environmental friendly, and in fact are composed of substances such as glued wood chips and formaldehyde. Not good!
  • Some shutter companies use hollow vinyl end caps and weak plastic clips to secure their shutters. These items will not last long and will need repair and adjustment regularly.
  • There’s only one company that can build and install genuine Thermalite and Ultraluxe Shutters, which are patented and considered the industry’s finest Shutters.
  • Look for a Diamond Coat finish on the Shutters, using a non-toxic, water based material which is safer for your family.
  • ALWAYS insist on a transferrable warranty, one that will actually add value to your home when you resell the property.
