Keep Your Children Safe with Child-Safe Window Treatments in Your Home
At Treasure Coast Window Fashions, safety is a top priority. As a Hunter Douglas dealer, we offer child-safe window treatments designed with the latest innovations in safety. Visit our showroom in Stuart, FL, to experiment with fully functional child-safe blinds and shades. Since 1995, the window treatment industry has been focused on reducing the threat of injury to children posed by looped window treatments. Converting to newer window treatments or retrofitting your old ones is critically important to the safety of the children in your home.
Take these steps to make sure your window treatments don’t pose a threat to children and pets:
- Replace all window treatments that currently operate with cords, including blinds, shades and draperies manufactured before 2001. More recently produced window coverings include safety features such as loop control, cordless operation, wand pull, and motorization that don’t require cords.
- Pay particular attention to window treatments in children’s bedrooms and play areas. Even with newer, safer window fashions, move all cribs, beds, furniture and toys that be climbed on away from windows, preferably to another wall.
- When horizontal blinds or shades are lowered, ensure cords are locked into position.
- Use safety features such as cord cleats and tensioning devices to improve the safety of your window treatments.
- Keep all window pull cords and inner lift cords away from out of the reach of children. Keep tassel pull cords short, and make sure continuous-loop cords are permanently anchored to the floor or wall. Ensure that cord stops are properly installed and adjusted to limit movement of inner lift cords.
