The Wall Street Journal published an article entitled “Consumer Safety Agency Recalls 5.5 Million Window Shades” about the unfortunate incidents of children getting strangled from window shade cords. This story really stresses the importance of ensuring all furnishings are child safe. Hunter Douglas, an innovator in the window fashions industry, has already developed multiple solutions such as the Literise® and Ultra Glide® lifting systems, and is continuously developing new systems to improve the safety and functionality of their products. In light of this news we will be running a child safety special from September 25th to November 16th.
The shades that were recalled were mass manufactured ready made shades for some of the large warehouse stores such as Target, IKEA and William Sonoma. At Window Treats Inc. all of our shades, blinds and drapery are custom made window treatments, allowing us make sure the product is child safe. Our consultants work along side you in assessing your needs whether décor, privacy, insulation, security, environment friendly, allergy free, and/or flame retardant products.
