Are Window Blind Cords Safe for Children?
Cord and Chain Tension Devices for Child Safety
We understand that blind cords are a safety concern for kids. This is why providing safer products for homes with infants and children is a top priority at Blinds of All Kinds. Health Canada’s current regulations on corded window covering products mandate all window treatments manufactured and sold in Canada with visible control cords must be supplied with cord/chain tension devices. We not only conform to the regulations, but we also offer alternatives, such as cordless or motorized systems to ensure your safety.
For those who prefer a cord or endless chain, extra safety is offered through cord/chain tension devices. These devices ensure that the cords and chain loops are secured tightly to prevent any strangulation or entanglement incidents. It is however necessary that the tension device is installed properly to the window frame or wall. If they are loosened over time, they should be reinstalled securely to operate properly and safely.
