If you are starting a family or have young children in your home, may we suggest these window covering solutions.

  1. Motorized window treatment solutions – Almost all window treatments can be motorized making shades safe and easy to operate.
  2. Cordless window treatments – No cords, no hassles!
  3. EcoSmart Cellular Shades – Our EcoSmart shades come standard with a breakaway cord equalizer, and our continuous cord shades have a hold down that is screwed to the wall.  Cordless and motorized upgrades are available on all EcoSmart shades.

Some helpful tips from windowcoverings.org

What to Look For… Children and window cords don’t mix. When window cords are accessible to small children, these seemingly harmless products may become strangulation hazards. This is especially important with older window coverings that may not meet the latest national standard for window cord safety.

Child safety

Move all cribs, beds, furniture and toys away from windows and window cords, preferably to another wall.

Cordless shades for child safety

If at all possible, use only non-corded window coverings in homes where infants and young children are present.
