New Blind & Shade Safety Law Means It’s Time To Update Your Window Treatments

A new mandate requires that all window treatments, whether custom or standard sizes, be cordless.

A new mandate requires that all window treatments, whether custom or standard sizes, be cordless. This ruling is the result of a collaborative effort by the Window Covering Manufactures Association, the Consumer Product Safety Commission, and the American National Standards Institute. 

The Rationale for the Change

The change aims to address the grave risks associated with corded window coverings, primarily the danger of strangulation among young children and animals. Data from various safety organizations indicates that corded window treatments pose a significant strangulation hazard to infants and toddlers. The CPSC has reports of numerous incidents over the years where children have become entangled in window covering cords, leading to tragic outcomes. 

By eliminating cords from window treatments, the risk of harm significantly decreases. Cordless window coverings are safer, ensuring that even the most curious children cannot become entangled. 

What this Means for Your Home

Manufacturers will eventually stop offering corded window treatments.  If your current home has corded window treatments, you should consider upgrading to newer, safer, cordless treatments.
