Window Treatment Safety In Raleigh

On June 1, 2024,The American National Standard For Safety Of Corded Window Covering Products went into effect. This guideline requires most window coverings sold in the US to be cordless or have cords specifically designed with safety devices. It serves as an important move toward phasing out the use of cords that pose a strangulation hazard to little children.

A New Safety Standard For Window Treatments

The Window Covering Manufacturers Association and American National Standards Institute is enforcing a new safety standard for window covering products. ANSI/WCMA A100.1-2022 is a criterion that establishes 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 United States must meet this safety standard. Most products will come in cordless styles. Treatments that use a continuous loop must include a kind of tension device that keeps the loop from becoming a strangulation threat. These measures will greatly reduce the number of window treatment cord injuries and fatalities among young children.
