October is Window Covering Safety Month

Hunter Douglas takes child and pet safety seriously when it comes to blind and shades.

Did You Know October is Window Covering Safety Month
 
The Window Covering Safety Council (WCSC) is urging parents and caregivers to check their window coverings for exposed or dangling cords that can pose a safety hazard to infants, young children and even pets. It is recommended that corded window coverings be replaced or retrofitted with today’s safer products.

From cordless and motorized operating systems, retractable lift cords, cord tensioners and wand controls, we offer a wide array of lifting system options for enhanced child and pet safety—that are all easy to operate. 

Child safety is serious business.

The warning shown here, for example, communicates the important message about cords being a potential strangulation hazard and suggests choosing cordless alternatives or products with inaccessible cords.

That's why for a limited time, Window Fashions of Texas is offering a Free Upgrade to the LiteRise lifting system on select products. See store for details:
