At Rollease Acmeda child and pet safety is of the utmost importance when designing and engineering our innovative and reliable window covering solutions. We offer a wide range of products that ensure every home and business is safe from hazardous loose chains and cords.

WINDOW COVERING SAFETY TIPS

Protect young curious minds from potential risks within your home and business with these best practices related to your home’s window coverings. Following the recommendations of the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (1), below are some precautions to take within a home with young children and pets.

  • Install only cordless window coverings.
  • If possible, replace corded window coverings with cordless options.
  • For homes with existing corded window coverings, follow these steps to reduce the risk of strangulation:
    • Keep all window covering cords well out of the reach of children and pets at all times.
    • Move and keep all furniture, cribs, beds, and climbable surfaces away from windows.
    • Make sure pull cords are adjusted to be as short as possible.
    • Continuous-loop pull cords on draperies, roller shades, and vertical blinds must be pulled tight and anchored to the floor or wall with a tension device such as our Chainhold Tension Device.
    • Be sure “cord stops”, a washer-like device used to prevent a dangerous cord loop from being pulled out of an inner cord, are installed properly.
  • For older window coverings, the Window Covering Safety Council provides steps to learn how to retrofit your window coverings and provide access to order free retrofit kits here.
