Child Safety

In the pursuit of creating a safe and nurturing environment for children, even the smallest details matter. Window coverings, often regarded as decorative elements, can surprisingly pose significant risks to child safety.

Window cords and chains, especially those found on traditional window coverings can pose unforeseen dangers to curious children. Curious little hands can easily become entangled in these cords, leading to accidents ranging from minor injuries to fatal incidents. Children may inadvertently wrap cords around their necks or bodies, leading to strangulation or other severe injuries.

New Federal Safety Standard- Release Date: November 02, 2022

In an effort to reduce the risk of strangulation deaths and serious life-threatening injuries to children from corded window coverings, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) voted to approve a new federal safety standard for operating cords on custom window coverings.

The new rules address the risk of strangulation deaths and injuries to children 8 years old and younger on all types of window cords.

Window Covering Safety Council (WCSC) recommends that only cordless window coverings or window coverings with inaccessible cords be used in homes with young children.  As parents and caregivers, it's essential to understand the potential dangers associated with window coverings and take proactive steps to ensure child safety when selecting window treatments.

Child Safety Standards - Effective December 2018

In 2018 the Window Covering Manufacturers Association (WCMA) decided on new standards for child safety to go into effect by December 15, 2018. The new window covering safety regulations state that cords on any custom-made window covering cannot be longer than 40% the height of the window covering unless the customer specifically requests a custom cord length.
