When choosing window treatments for a child’s room, a home with young children, or a children’s building or facility, cord safety is an important consideration. As a family business, we take child safety very seriously at The Shade Store. All of our products adhere to the Child Safety Standards established by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. In addition to these standards, we are proud that 8 of our products have been certified Best for Kids in association with the Window Covering Manufacturers Association (WCMA).
The Best For Kids Program
In 2015, the WCMA announced the Best for Kids program, the industry’s first third party certification program designed to help customers choose appropriate window treatments for use around young children. These products must either have no cords or inner cords that are not accessible as defined in Appendix C of ANSI/WCMA A100.1-2012, the National Standard for Safety of Corded Window Covering Products.
To qualify for the program, products are tested by a WCMA-recognized third party laboratory. The Shade Store submitted product samples to the testing laboratory earlier this year for analysis and review, and 8 products received the Best for Kids certification. Learn more about our Cordless Flat Roman Shades below.
Cordless Roman Shades
Flat Roman shades, our most popular style of romans, have four control types available: standard cord lock, continuous loop, motorized, and cordless.
The cordless control Flat Roman shades have met the certification requirements for the Best for Kids program. Cordless control completely eliminates all dangling cords, and can be lifted or lowered with a gentle pull. The sleek look of flat romans is maintained by a permanent bottom fold, which creates a clean, neat stack when the shade is raised.
