Safe Window Treatments In Minneapolis

On June 1, 2024,The American National Standard For Safety Of Corded Window Covering Products went into effect. This regulation requires almost all window treatments sold in the US to have cordless mechanisms or have cords intentionally designed with safety devices. It is a significant move toward eliminating corded window treatments that are a strangulation hazard to small children.

A New Safety Standard For Window Covers

The Window Covering Manufacturers Association and American National Standards Institute has established the new safety requirement for window treatment products. ANSI/WCMA A100.1-2022 is a voluntary criterion that gives 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.”

Beginning June 1, 2024, window covers sold in the US must follow the new safety standard. The bulk of products will change to cordless styles. Treatments with a continuous loop must include a regulated tension device that keeps the loop from becoming a strangulation threat. These measures will significantly lessen the chance of window treatment cord injuries and fatalities among toddlers.
