The window covering industry and the federal government have developed child safety standards to minimize the risk associated with free-hanging cords on window coverings. As a member of the Window Covering Safety Council (WCSC), Next Day Blinds is committed to incorporating the latest and most effective child-safe technologies in our products. View our safety reference chart.
All NDB window coverings are ANSI compliant for child safety.
If your household includes small children, here are a few more things to keep in mind to keep them safe.
1. No Cords, No Worries
Reliable and easy to use, cordless window coverings are inherently the safest of all. At Next Day Blinds, we are continuing to develop and manufacture more cordless options.

2. In the Loop
Many of our window coverings are available with lift systems that employ a fixed-length anchored and tensioned cord loop. While not cordless, these shades do eliminate free-hanging cords.
To be effective, it is critical that these cord loops be properly anchored and tensioned. (If at any time a cord anchor becomes detached or a cord separates from its anchor, please notify us immediately and we will service it at no charge.)
Easy Lift Option/Looped Control
With no free-hanging cords, your shades are easily raised and lowered using the continuous loop operation. Available as an option on our Honeycomb Shades, Soft Roman Shades, Natural Roman Shades, Roller Shades, and Savannah Shades.
3. Living Safely with Cords
As a local business that built its reputation on customer care, Next Day Blinds really does care about your family's safety. We're doing our part by making sure that all of our window coverings are ANSI compliant and incorporate the latest safety technologies, including breakaway cord consolidators.

If your household includes young children and you have corded window coverings, we urge you to make them as safe as possible by taking a couple of simple precautions:
Use cord cleats
Make free-hanging cords inaccessible to you children by securely wrapping cords onto cleats when not in use. Cord cleats are available free of charge from Next Day Blinds--just ask.
Don't tie cords together
NEVER knot multiple free-hanging cords together to form a closed loop; always keep them untangled.
