Are your window coverings safe for pets and children?
Child and pet safety is important to Kerrville Window Fashions!
Children are naturally curious about the world around them. Basic household items like window treatments can turn into possible hazards for them. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, corded window coverings are among the top five hidden hazards for children in American homes.
Hunter Douglas, has made it their top priority to create window treatments that are safer for homes with infants, young children and pets. They have worked hard developing a wide variety of products that can reduce the risk of accidents.
Designing their window treatments, with safety in mind, Hunter Douglas, as well as, Alta Window Fashions has produced cordless alternatives to motorized operation systems, retractable lift cords, cord tensioners, and wand controls. They offer a wide range of innovative lifting system options for increasing child and pet safety, as well as, easy operation. For example, one cordless operation they have to offer simply allows you to use your fingers to raise or lower the product. This operating system helps to decrease possible hazards, while also offering a more simplified look. Another cordless operation is motorization, which is offered on a wide variety of Hunter Douglas products. The motorized option eliminates the lift cord and allows the product to be operated at the touch of a button.
Alternatively, there is also the option of having the single-cord operation. For example, the UltraGlide is a patented system that features a retractable pull-cord that upholds a continuous length, whether the shade is lowered or raised which reduces access to the lift cord. Another operation is the combination wand/cord feature that can incorporate both traverse and tilt functions into one easy-to-use control.
Although it is important to Hunter Douglas, Alta Window Fashions and many other brands to keep safety in mind, they are also thinking of convenience and beauty as well. Mostly any product you find, allows you to choose from an abundant array of materials and colors that complement your child’s room. With their extensive selection of fashionable styles, you’re sure to find the perfect choice for any room in your home.
