Most consumers consider color, style, and even privacy when choosing window treatments. If young children are around your home, then cord control should be another important factor when selecting your window treatments.
Child Safety is Important
Although today’s window fashions come with built-in cord-safety features, the Window Covering Safety Council believes cordless window coverings are the best choice for use in children’s bedrooms and any area of the home where children spend time playing.
In fact, cordless designs are rapidly gaining favor with consumers and decorators because of their “clean” look and streamlined design. Most traditionally corded window fashions are available in “cordless” styles through the use of spring-loaded mechanisms, battery- or motor-operated lift controls, or simple wand pulls. When combined with the scores of new fashion looks in today’s window coverings, consumers can pick from a wide choice of high-style cordless designs.
If you wish to keep your older window coverings (i.e., purchased before 2001), order your Free Retrofit Kit from the Window Covering Safety Council.
