Did you know that Window Coverings are among the top 5 safety hazards in the home? Although Window Coverings are purchased by adults, it is children who can be at most danger if consumers are not properly informed. October is Child Safety Month so we’d like to take this opportunity to make sure you’re informed on how to keep your home safe!
At Nest Expressions, we carry Hunter Douglas Window Treatments. Hunter Douglas is a member of the Window Covering Safety Council and the Window Covering Manufacturing Association. Both of these organizations exist to ensure that Window Coverings on the market are in compliance with the strictest of industry safety standards. In addition to the development of strict manufacturing standards, these organizations help to promote the use of retrofit kits that will ensure that your window covering is of the highest safety standard.
Hunter Douglas has several Window Treatment options that are suitable for homes with small children. Some of the most popular choices are the LiteRise, Silhouette, and Cordless Operation Systems. In addition, Hunter Douglas certified installers will ensure that your window treatment is installed with the proper tension, minimizing the risk of an accident.
75% of accidents are caused by older products. That’s a powerful statistic! However, we understand that it may not be budget appropriate for everyone to run out and buy new window treatments. That is why Hunter Douglas provides retrofit kits that are free to the consumer. With a retrofit kit, you can outfit your window to ensure child safety without going outside of your budget constraints.
