Window Treatment Safety In Austin

The American National Standard For Safety Of Corded Window Covering Products went into effect June 1, 2024. This regulation requires the majority window treatments sold in the US to have cordless designs or have cords specially designed with safety devices. It stands as a major move toward phasing out the use of cords that pose a strangulation danger to little children.

A New Safety Standard For Window Covers

The Window Covering Manufacturers Association and American National Standards Institute is enforcing a new safety requirement for window treatment products. ANSI/WCMA A100.1-2022 is a precaution that provides 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 coverings sold in the US need to follow the new safety standard. Most products will convert to cordless options. Treatments that have a continuous loop must include a compliant tension device to keep the loop from becoming a strangulation risk. These measures will notably decrease the number of window treatment cord injuries and fatalities among little ones.
