Window Treatment Safety In Washington DC

As of June 1, 2024,The American National Standard For Safety Of Corded Window Covering Products went into effect. This guideline requires the majority window coverings sold in the US to be cordless or have cords that include special safety devices. It is an essential move toward eliminating corded window treatments that pose a strangulation hazard to little children.

A New Safety Standard For Window Treatments

The Window Covering Manufacturers Association and American National Standards Institute is enforcing the new safety benchmark for window covering products. ANSI/WCMA A100.1-2022 is a precaution 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 treatments sold in the USA have to satisfy this safety standard. The majority of products will change to cordless designs. Treatments with a continuous loop operating system must include a regulated tension device that prevents the loop from becoming a strangulation threat. These rules will significantly lessen the possibility of window treatment cord injuries and deaths among little ones.
