​​​Springs Windows Fashions' customers have high standards for the products they use to enhance their homes. They are looking for blinds, drapes, and shades of exceptional quality, as beautiful as they are functional in design.

They also have high standards for the companies who make those products. That’s why Springs Window Fashions is working constantly to improve processes, maximize product benefits, and above all, ensure safety.

A Leader in Window Treatment Safety - In August 2018, Springs Window Fashions partnered with the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) and Window Covering Manufacturing Association (WCMA) to implement new cord safety updates into several window treatment products.

These changes were designed to improve window treatment cord safety and reduce the possible risk posed by window treatment cords to children. We welcomed this change, because it not only allowed us to prevent potential problems, but it also raised awareness about the hazards of cord loops on blinds and shades to young children.

Invest in Safe Products – Practice Safety at Home When
​child-proofing a home, it is important to remember that cords on traditional window blinds and shades pose a strangulation hazard, and can cause accidents or injuries to babies and toddlers. The Window Covering Safety Council urges parents and caregivers to inspect their homes for potential window cord hazards and following these essential safety rules:

  • Install only cordless window coverings in young children's bedrooms and sleeping areas.
  • Replace window blinds, corded shades, and draperies manufactured before 2001 with products that comply with current safety standards​.
  • Update window blinds, corded shades, and drapes manufactured before 2001 with retrofit cord repair devices, or replace them with products that adhere to the current safety standards.
  • Move all cribs, beds, furniture, and toys away from windows and window cords.
  • Keep all window pull cords and inner lift cords out of the reach of children. Make sure that tasseled pull cords are short, and continuous-loop cords are permanently anchored to the floor or wall. Cord stops must be properly installed and adjusted to limit movement of inner lift cords.
  • Lock cords into position whenever horizontal blinds or
    ​​shades are lowered, including when they come to rest on a
    ​window sill.
  • Cordless lift and motorized lift options for blinds and shades are both safe alternatives—​eliminating the standard cord that could entangle children or pets.
