Window Treatment Safety In Fort Lauderdale

As of June 1, 2024,The American National Standard For Safety Of Corded Window Covering Products went into effect. This regulation requires most window coverings sold in the US to be cordless or have cords intentionally made with safety devices. This stands as an important move toward eliminating the use of cords that pose a strangulation risk to small children.

A New Window Treatment Safety Standard

The Window Covering Manufacturers Association and American National Standards Institute has established the new safety requirement for window covering products. ANSI/WCMA A100.1-2022 is a standard that establishes new guidelines 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.”

Starting on June 1, 2024, window covers sold in the United States need to satisfy this safety standard. The bulk of products will change to cordless designs. Treatments that use a continuous loop must include a specific tension device to stop the loop from becoming a strangulation threat. These requirements will notably reduce the possibility of window treatment cord injuries and fatalities among toddlers.
