Advanced Child Safety Solutions

Rollease Acmeda is dedicated to making sure our product offering is child safe. With upcoming changes to legislation around child safety and window coverings, we are evolving our comprehensive range of products in both manual and motorized solutions so they are compliant with WCMA, Health Canada, and the upcoming CPCS Rulings.  


Legislation on Window Covering Safety

Rollease Acmeda has always had child safe solutions that were compliant with the WCMA and Health Canada. Our latest focus has been taking our innovative designs and making them compliant with the proposed CPSC rulings as well. The proposed CPSC rulings state that no more than 8 inches of chain can be exposed on a manual shading system and no more than 12 inches of cord is exposed on retractable cord systems. 


Child Safe Solutions

Rollease Acmeda’s product lines are innovatively designed to keep up with the needs of our customers. We are expanding our range of cord-free solutions to include Easy Spring Air, a balanced shading system, and a range of basic child safe motorized solutions called Automate Basics.

Additional 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.
