Steps To A Safer Home From Hunter Douglas Window Fashions

Safety is a concern for everyone, especially parents. An important part of raising children is careful supervision of their activities in the home. Windows are a potential hazard to the safety and well-being of toddlers and young children.

PRLog - Nov. 14, 2010 - Safety is a concern for everyone, especially parents.  An important part of raising children is careful supervision of their activities in the home.  Parents need to be aware of their children’s surroundings at all times in order to anticipate and prevent potential injury.  One of the most overlooked areas in the home is the window.  Whether open or closed, windows are a potential hazard to the safety and well-being of toddlers and young children.  
“We have always been a strong believer in educating consumers about child safety, especially the potential dangers of window covering cords,” said Jim Tan, Regional Director of Hunter Douglas Asia, Window Covering Products Division.

“Hunter Douglas Window Fashions has consistently been at the forefront of the industry with regard to innovating alternative lifting systems that enhance the safety of our window coverings as well as building consumer awareness of window covering safety.”

Various alternative lifting systems that Hunter Douglas Window Fashions has developed to help prevent injuries from window covering operating cords include:
•   PowerRise® 2.0 with Platinum™ Technology, a battery-powered remote control system that operates window fashions at the touch of a button and also completely eliminates lift cords. It is offered on a wide range of Hunter Douglas Window Fashions products.  PowerGlide® with Platinum™ Technology is a battery powered remote control system that both traverses the sheers and rotates the vanes on Luminette® Privacy Sheers.
•   The UltraGlide® system, a single, retractable cord that maintains a constant length, whether the shade is raised or lowered. This significantly reduces access to the lift cord and offers smooth, reliable operation.  It is an option on honeycomb shades, window shadings and Modern Roman Shades.  

•   Hunter Douglas Window Fashions vertically oriented products work with a wand option that allows all functions to be controlled by a single wand without the need for operating cords.  

•   For window fashions with continuous cord loops, Hunter Douglas Window Fashions offers a Cord Tensioner that keeps the cords taut under spring tension so that children cannot become easily entangled.

Also on the safety front, Vignette® Modern Roman Shades were the first shades to have no exposed back cords for enhanced child safety and a smooth, uniform appearance from both inside and outside of the home.  They were specifically designed to be that way.
