Why we care. And why you should too.

Our award-winning innovations put safety first so you and your family can put fun first. Thanks to our extensive research and elegant aesthetic, healthy boundaries never looked so good.

Window treatment cords present a potential strangulation hazard to young children and pets. Accidents with window treatment cords often involve older products that do not meet current safety standards. It is strongly recommended that only cordless window treatments be used in homes with small children.

Old corded window treatments should be retrofitted or replaced with safer designs in accordance with the Corded Window Coverings Regulations. Our cordless products are scrutinized at the highest level and we proudly offer several child safe options to keep your family safe.

We support the Corded Window Covering Regulations and have provided a checklist of requirements:

  • Move all furniture, cribs, beds and climbable surfaces away from windows.

  • Install only cordless window coverings in homes with young children.

  • Check your current window treatments for exposed or dangling cords and replace them with products that meet the CWCR standard.

  • For details about the CWCR, click here or download the information sheet on Canada's Corded Window Coverings Regulations for reference.
