YOUR SAFETY IS OUR HIGHEST PRIORITY

You also have high standards for the companies who make those products. That’s why Graber is working constantly to improve processes, maximize product benefits, and above all, ensure your safety. 

When child-proofing your home it is important to remember that cords on traditional window blinds and shades pose a strangulation hazard, and can cause accidents or injuries to babies and toddlers. 

Cordless lift, motorized tilt, and wand tilt options are safer alternatives-eliminating the standard cord that could entangle children or pets. For more information on child-safe window treatments review the guidelines below, or talk with your Graber Design Consultant. 

IMPORTANT CORD SAFETY GUIDELINES 

The Window Covering Safety Council urges parents and caregivers to check for potential window cord hazards and make the necessary safety updates. 

. Install only cordless window coverings in young children’s playrooms and sleeping areas. 

• Replace or retrofit window blinds, corded shades and draperies manufactured before 2001 with today’s safer products. 

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

• Keep all window pull cords and inner lift cords out of children’s reach. Make sure that tasseled pull cords are short and continuous- loop cords are permanently anchored to the floor or wall, Cord stops should be properly installed and adjusted. 

• Lock cords into position whenever horizontal blinds or shades are lowered.
