Child Safety

Certified Best for Kids

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. Certified Best for Kids

All Cordless Next Day Blinds products are certified Best for Kids through the Window Covering Manufacturers Association (WCMA) third party certification program.

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.
