This is the motto of the Window Covering Safety Council (WCSC), an organization dedicated to educating consumers about window cord safety. Unnecessary injuries can be avoided with child safe blinds and preventative safety measures. Blindsgalore is proud to offer a wide variety of cordless window treatments that improve child safety. Pets are also protected by choosing cordless blinds or shades.
The WCSC recommends cordless child safety blinds and shades whenever possible, including shades with motorized lift as child safe window treatments. Wand control operation is another cordless choice for vertical blinds and panel track blinds, which are typically necessary for larger windows and patio doors. When the position of the window or large size of the shade prevents a cordless or motorized choice, the WCSC also approves the use of continuous cord loops for child safe window treatments. This option features clutch-assisted lift control with a looped cord that is anchored to the wall and remains the same length regardless of the position of the shade.
Today's options are many, so you don't need to sacrifice style or function when shopping for your child safe blinds and shades. Manufacturers now offer cordless lift in some of the most on-trend styles like eco-friendly woven woods in bamboo, reeds and sustainable materials, as well as fabric roman shades in the latest home fashion patterns. You can also choose from dozens of cordless blackout shades to help keep the bedroom dark during mid-day naps and during the night. Cordless cellular shades can accommodate your need for more protection against outdoor temperatures and greater indoor comfort in children's bedrooms or any room, if you have a need for privacy in certain rooms, but still want to let in the light, the top down bottom up feature is also available as an option on some cordless blinds and shades.
Even if your home doesn't currently have small children, cordless window treatments are still a smart choice for peace of mind. Houseguests may bring children into your home, and, if you ever sell your home, the buyers will appreciate the added safety and streamlined look provided by cordless blinds and shades.
When shopping for a child safe blind or shade, consider which operating mechanism is right for the window. Since cordless shades are operated by gently pushing or pulling the bottom rail, make sure you will be able to reach as high or as low as you will need to position your blind. For very tall or hard to reach windows, a motorized blind or the continuous cord loop option might be right for you.
Lastly, be sure to consider the style of blind or shade that best fits your decor, personality, and light control and privacy needs. Child safe window treatments are available in a wide selection of blinds and shades from Bali, Levolor, Comfortex, and Graber as well as our own signature line.
