Window Covering Safety At CMI Interiors, Inc.
When young children (and pets) are around the home cord safety should be a key factor in selecting window treatments. Going Cordless is the best practice. We offer manual, battery operated and motorized cordless solutions in all categories, so style never needs to be sacrificed for safety.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) & the Window Covering Safety Council (WCSC) encourages parents to follow the Window– Cord Safety Rules:
*Install only cordless window coverings in young children’s bedrooms and play areas
*Move all cribs, beds, furniture, and toys away from windows and window cords
*Keep all window pull cords and inner lift cords out of the reach of children
*Make sure tasseled cords are short and out of reach & never tie a knot joining two cords to form a loop
*Make sure continuous cord loops are PERMANENTLY anchored to the floor or wall
*Replace Window Coverings manufactured before 2001 with today’s safer products. For those who choose to keep older treatments free kits are available to retrofit them through the WCSC website, www.windowcoverings.org.
Make the right choice, Kids…Cords…Caution.
All of CMI’s Shades are fabricated with the latest Child Safety Regulations put forth by the CPSC and WCMA. You can find a full overview of these regulations at http://wcmanet.org/wcmastandard.html
