Tips for Enhancing Child Safety at the Window From American Blinds, Wallpaper and More
When it comes to increasing child safety in the home, the window is a fixture that should not be forgotten. American Blinds, Wallpaper and More offers tips for enhancing child safety at the window:
- Don’t forget window covering cords can be hazardous.
- Use window guards on all windows above the first floor. Screens aren’t strong enough to stop a fall; they are meant to keep insects out, not to keep children in.
- If it’s necessary to keep windows open for ventilation, install locks that limit the size of the opening.
- For sliding glass doors, install safety glass that won’t shatter. Additionally, apply bright stickers at a child’s eye level (and also adult eye level) to alert him or her to the presence of glass.
- Be sure to keep all furniture and cribs away from windows.
Put safety first in your home during Window Covering Safety Month with Cordless Blinds from American Blinds, Wallpaper and More. One of the most recent safety innovations is the cordless lifting system that allows shades or blinds to be raised and lowered with the touch of a finger. Cellular shades eliminate pull cords, enhancing child & pet safety and creating a clean look. Colorful and durable, cellular shades are a great choice for a child’s room. They
not only help block the sun’s harmful UV rays, they feature a unique honeycomb construction that “traps” air for greater energy efficiency, helping to reduce energy bills during the upcoming winter months. The shades also softly diffuse incoming natural light to cut the glare and heat on warm days.
“We’re happy to partner with the Window Covering Safety Council and our product vendors to inform consumers about these very important safety tips” said Rick Isenberg, Chief Marketing Officer of American Blinds, Wallpaper and More. “As parents, we tend to focus on child-safe things like car seats and outlets, and may forget about dangling cords. We’ve put extensive information in our Resource Center on Child Safety, including the Window Covering Safety
Council’s SuperBaby videos, which will help parents focus on safety and smile at the same time.” Join Window Covering Safety Month and keep your children safe and warm with cordless blinds from American Blinds, Wallpaper and More.
