Keeping our customers and their children safe is very important to us. 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 young children and even pets in your home.
We carry the very latest in child-safe window treatments from Hunter Douglas.
Stop by our store in West Bloomfield, serving Northville, Bloomfield Hills, Birmingham, Franklin, Bloomfield Hills Township, Novi, Farmington Hills, Oakland County, and surrounding areas.
Take these steps to make sure your window treatments don’t pose a threat to children and pets:
- Replace all window treatments with cords, including window blinds, corded shades and corded 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.
- Be particularly conscious of the window coverings in children’s bedrooms and play areas. Even with safe window coverings, move all cribs, beds, furniture and toys that be climbed on away from windows, preferably to another wall
- 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.
- 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.
