Safe Window Treatments For Gainesville

On June 1, 2024,The American National Standard For Safety Of Corded Window Covering Products went into effect. This standard requires almost all window coverings sold in the US to have cordless mechanisms or have cords intentionally made with safety devices. This is an essential effort toward eliminating the use of cords that can be a strangulation risk to small children.

A New Window Treatment Safety Standard

The Window Covering Manufacturers Association and American National Standards Institute has established the new safety measure for window covering products. ANSI/WCMA A100.1-2022 is a standard that establishes new guidelines for window treatments that “reduce the possibility of injury, including strangulation, to young children from the bead chain, cord, or any type of flexible loop.”

Beginning June 1, 2024, window coverings sold in the US have to follow this new safety standard. Most products will change to cordless options. Treatments that have a continuous loop operating system must include a kind of tension device to keep the loop from becoming a strangulation hazard. These rules will greatly reduce the possibility of window treatment cord injuries and deaths among toddlers.
