Kid Safe Window Coverings

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.

Vignette® PowerView® MotorizationSmart Motorized Blinds By Hunter Douglas

Program your window treatments in any room to raise, lower and traverse on their own with easy motorized operating systems. You can use a remote control or even activate them wirelessly when you’re not at home. If you’re running late in the evening, you can close the shades remotely while you’re gone for more safety and privacy. Or for best energy efficiency and UV protection of your carpet and furnishings, you can ask your blinds to move when you know the most direct sun will be hitting your windows throughout the day, blocking the harmful and hot rays. You can do all of this wirelessly.

When at home, for hard-to-reach areas, you can use a remote for easy open and close of your blinds or shades. Open your beautiful living room shades from top or bottom (or somewhere in between), set up bathroom shades with retractable cords, and use cordless systems in bedrooms keeping a minimalist look and increasing child and pet safety. Our guaranteed for life Hunter Douglas window shades offer the following motorized features to choose from:
