Window Treatment Safety For Fort Myers

The American National Standard For Safety Of Corded Window Covering Products went into effect June 1, 2024. This guideline requires the majority window treatments sold in the US to have cordless mechanisms or have cords specifically constructed with safety devices. This is an important effort toward phasing out the use of cords that are a strangulation danger to young children.

A New Safety Standard For Window Treatments

The Window Covering Manufacturers Association and American National Standards Institute issued a new safety measure for window covering products. ANSI/WCMA A100.1-2022 is a voluntary criterion that provides new guidelines for window treatments that “reduce the possibility of injury, including strangulation, to young children from the bead chain, cord, or any type of flexible loop.”

As of June 1, 2024, window treatments sold in the USA have to satisfy the new safety standard. The bulk of products will change to cordless designs. Treatments that have a continuous loop operating system must include a certain tension device to stop the loop from becoming a strangulation risk. These rules will notably reduce the chance of window treatment cord injuries and fatalities among little ones.
