Window Treatment Safety In Seattle

As of June 1, 2024,The American National Standard For Safety Of Corded Window Covering Products went into effect. This regulation requires most window coverings sold in the US to have cordless designs or have cords specifically constructed with safety devices. It serves as a significant move toward phasing out the use of cords that create a strangulation risk to small children.

A New Window Treatment Safety Standard

The Window Covering Manufacturers Association and American National Standards Institute issued the new safety benchmark for window covering products. ANSI/WCMA A100.1-2022 is a voluntary precaution 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.”

Beginning June 1, 2024, window coverings sold in the USA must satisfy the new safety standard. Most products will come in cordless designs. Treatments that have a continuous loop operating system must include a certain tension device that stops the loop from becoming a strangulation threat. These measures will notably lessen the number of window treatment cord injuries and deaths among little ones.
