Cordless Blinds Remove Risks of Strangulation and Death for Children.
Every year children die or are injured from dangling cords attached to window treatments, blinds and shades. The threat comes from kids or pets playing near window treatments where they can become entangled in the cord. While organizations are set up to help educate parents about this issue, we don’t think there can be enough information about children’s safety.
Window treatments installed before 2001 may have dangerous cords. These cords can be retrofitted with a free kit available through the Window Covering Safety Council. However, for parents who want to replace window treatments, blinds and shades, there is a wide selection of styles and brands that use cordless technology to eliminate potential dangers for babies, children and pets.
No matter what style of blinds you are interested in be sure to purchase a cordless variety. Listed below are a few brands and styles that come with cordless options:
Children’s safety is a top priority for us. We want to see children grow up healthy and protected from needless dangers. Every year we do our best to educate parents and parents-to-be about the need for cordless blinds in baby and children’s rooms as well as play rooms. We urge pet owners to be aware that pets, too can become entangled in hanging cords. For the safety of your loved ones, we encourage homeowners and renters alike to replace old blinds and shades with safer cordless blinds.
