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.

Can You Use Shutters on Patio Doors?

August 1, 2017
brown shutters

Many homeowners like the look of interior shutters, but they aren’t sure if shutters can be installed on patio doors. The answer is: yes! In fact, custom shutters and window coverings from Danmer can be installed on any door or window, no matter what size.

Benefits of Shutters on Patio Doors

Installing shutters on your patio doors is a great investment and brings along with it many benefits from attractive interior design to making the home more comfortable.

Décor – Complete the look of any room or entryway with beautiful shutters. They can match the color of the interior walls and door frame or select a bold, accent color for a dramatic look. Shutters look stylish and inviting in any home.

Privacy – It’s not always preferable to have someone walk up to your patio and be able to see right into your home. Shutters can be closed completely so that no one is able to see through them, providing privacy when you want it.

Blocks Light – Not only can you keep people from looking in, you can also keep light from peering in. Shutters fit tightly and block almost all light from coming in.

Noise Reduction – Shutters also block out unwanted noise. Whether you live near a busy street, school or business, installing stutters on doors and windows can make a big difference.

Choosing Custom Shutters for Patio Doors

While it can be easy to install shutters on patio doors, it may not be easy to find them premade at your local hardware store. Most doors are narrower and longer than typical premade shutters so it is best to have them custom made. Custom shutters will match the door and the look of your home perfectly.


Don’t let your doors feel left out. Install custom-made interior shutters on patio doors, front doors and windows. Danmer Custom Shutters can help you design practical, affordable, and stylish shutters for your home. Call us at (800) 684-3434 for a FREE Design & Quote or book your appointment online and take advantage of our Buy One, Get One 50% Off on all window coverings!

How to Choose the Best Custom Window Shutters for Your Home

July 25, 2017

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.

Have fur babies at home? Melissa has some advice for you and your pets. When it comes to man’s best friend and your blinds or shades, the problem isn’t playfulness as much as curiosity. While cats like to lounge in windows and play with cords, dogs want to know what is going on in the world outside. Because of this, if you have pets at home, you need to consider your options. Window treatments are just an obstruction keeping your furry friends from a clear view of that squirrel, or the mailman, or whatever may be going on outside. Melissa can suggest the right options for you, weather it’s Cordless Blinds or top down/bottom up Honeycomb Shades or Custom Interior Shutters, your pets will be safe and you’ll have a piece of mind knowing that their aren’t dangers at home.

Good News-Bad News about Sunlight

June 13, 2017
Danmer’s Thermalite Shutter Insulating System

Winter is behind us (in most of the country, anyway). Now’s the season of fun and sun from Spring through Summer!  There should be plenty of sunlight outdoors, but did you know that the sun’s rays can be healthy and useful to us indoors, as well?

Danmer’s Thermalite Shutter Insulating SystemOf course, letting sunlight into your home will keep it well lit – naturally – while cutting down on lightbulb usage. This will reduce your energy bill, a good thing.  But without the proper window coverings, it can be difficult to manage the amount of light without damaging furnishings, flooring and even that treasured art pieces on your walls. Not good! Fortunately, there are window coverings specifically designed for both energy efficiency and home interior protection. These solutions come in a number of styles to fit your own personal décor and your budget.

Danmer’s Thermalite Shutter Insulating System, for example, can help save energy twofold: First, custom Thermalite shutters cut heat loss or gain through your windows, providing as much as 3 times the insulation of typical wood shutters.  And second, Danmer shutters allow you to control the amount of sunlight that enters your home – which can reduce home energy bills by up to 35%.

Regulating sunlight can help create the ambiance you seek, while keeping those light switches in the off position. But let’s not forget the aesthetic as well as the practical: Thermalite shutters are elegant, easy to maintain, and look great in any room!  Visit us at www.danmer.com or call us at (800) 684-3434 to set up your free in-home consultation.
