October is Window Coverings Safety Month. Cords on window treatments can strangle and permanently injure children. The Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) reports that window treatments with cords rank in the top five hidden dangers in the home.
Specialty Drapery encourages all parents and guardians of small children to look at the windows in their homes and ask themselves, “How safe are my window treatments?” If at all possible, only cordless products should be in homes and childcare centers where there are infants and small children.
Specialty is a staunch promoter of cordless window products. Visit our showroom to see the selection of child-safe products we have to offer. To learn more, go to the Window Covering Safety Council at http://www.windowcoverings.org/.
