Budget Blinds Is Going Cordless for Child Safety

Budget Blinds reminds parents that window safety is a critical consideration.

Melbourne, FL (PRWEB) November 26, 2013 - In order to help parents understand the window-covering options available that help promote safety and consumer education, Budget Blinds is joining the recent "going cordless" trend across several industries.

Budget Blinds is now recommending cordless treatments for homes where small children or pets live or frequently visit. The movement in window coverings is not just about modern style and convenience; it’s an issue of safety.

Some styles of traditional corded-window coverings pose a tempting hazard to infants and toddlers who view dangling cords as playthings. Each year, entanglement by window cords is a serious danger that can cause injury to small children, or maybe even death.

Cordless options available at Budget Blinds include shutters, motorized shades and cordless cellular shades. Existing corded window coverings can also be retrofitted with safety features such as spring-assisted clutches, sliding panel track systems, break-away tassels, cord stops and cord cleats.

Be mindful of where furniture is placed within a child’s bedroom or playroom. Moving furniture, such as cribs, changing tables, toy chests and chairs away from the window area prevents access to window coverings. This also minimizes the risk of accidentally falling from the window should the child crawl up and over the wrong end. In the event that the glass breaks, positioning furniture away from the window reduces the risk of injury from broken glass.

If furniture must be placed near a window, consider adding security film, which helps maintain the integrity of windowpanes during a storm or earthquake, and from the impact of flying objects such as wind-driven tree limbs or baseballs from the neighborhood game.
