The cords from blinds and drapery have been identified as a frequent product connected to the strangulation of children under the age of 5. This can be a very scary thought for those with young children. However, manufacturers, importers and retailers have taken a bolder stance on warning parents about this potential danger, and advise them to keep all window covering cords out of the reach of children. A child should never be left alone in a room with these cords.
Complete Blinds of Barrie, Ontario recommends that you never put a crib or child's bed near a window with a dangling cord, or put any furniture or objects a child can climb on near these cords. In addition, do not tie or knot window cords because this can make a new loop that a child could become entangled in.
Two-corded horizontal blinds, cellular shades and pleated shades are have many methods for removing loops. There is warning tags on products that describe how, or you may replace cords with safety tassels.
Complete Blinds is more than happy to help you ensure the safety of your children and provide you with child safe blinds or drapery. For more information, please give us a call or stop by.
