Window Treatment Safety In Charlotte

Beginning 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 specially made with safety devices. This is a major step toward eliminating the use of cords that are a strangulation danger to small children.

A New Window Treatment Safety Standard

The Window Covering Manufacturers Association and American National Standards Institute issued an updated safety requirement for window covering products. ANSI/WCMA A100.1-2022 is a voluntary criterion that establishes new requirements 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.”

As of June 1, 2024, window treatments sold in the USA need to satisfy this new safety standard. The bulk of products will change to cordless designs. Treatments that use a continuous loop must include a kind of tension device that prevents the loop from becoming a strangulation risk. These rules will notably reduce the possibility of window treatment cord injuries and deaths among small children.
