Child Safe Blinds and Shades: Protect Your Little Ones

Falls, slips, crashes and tumbles…welcome to the world of childhood! As your little ones play and explore, you can count on bumps and bruises along the way. It’s all part of being a kid. While you can’t protect your children from every nick and scrape, you can do a lot to safeguard them from serious–and even potentially fatal–injuries. If you’re like most parents, you’ve probably already taken steps to ensure safety in your home. Potential poisons are securely locked away and your outlets are sporting those fashionable little covers. But what about your window coverings? Do they have cords that dangle down? Cords are dangerous for kids; it’s easy for them to get tangled or even strangled. That’s why child safe blinds and shades (and shutters, too!) are a must in homes with children. At Rocky Mountain Shutters & Shades, we care about your family and their safety. Let us help you determine what child safe options will work best for your home and your family.

Children are curious little beings, aren’t they? They get into everything! If you step out of the room for a minute, beware! You could come back to find them up to all sorts of mischief. The wonder, awe, and curiosity of childhood is beautiful, and we should do everything we can to foster our kids’ desires to learn and figure things out. We should also do everything we can to make sure they’re safe as they explore and experiment. Dangling cords are oh so tempting for little minds and little hands–which puts them at risk. The best child safe blinds and shades are cordless.

PowerView motorization is a cordless operating system that makes your window coverings safe and your life easier. Set, save, and schedule adjustments to happen automatically, and get touch-of-a-button control. With PowerView, there are no cords, no danger…just safety and convenience. What more could a parent want?!

You might be wondering why you can’t just knot the cords up and put them up at the top of the window frame. They wouldn’t dangle, and they’d be out of reach. That’d make them safe, right? Not really. Lots of things could make them slip down, knots don’t always stay, and children can go anywhere! Seriously, kids are known for climbing high and ending up in all sorts of places they shouldn’t be. Leaving their safety up to chance just isn’t worth it. Plus, what kind of function do you have at your windows if the cords you need to make adjustments are all wrapped up and tied? Not much. Cordless window coverings are really best.

LiteRise is an operating system that lets you guide your child safe blinds and shades into place using the bottom rail. Move it up, down, or anywhere in between, and your shades stay where you put them. Simple, effective, and most importantly: safe. And, don’t forget about shutters! They’re a great child safe option. Cordless by design–and intentionally safety inspected–they offer the function you need, the charm you want, and the safety you deserve.

What happens when you want safety to be your priority, but cordless just won’t work because of the layout of your home or furnishings? Well, if PowerView motorization isn’t an option, your best bet is to choose a safe cord alternative. We have child safe blinds and shades that use a cord tensioner to secure the cord loop safely inside the window frame so nothing dangles down. We have cord wands that can make the adjustments you need without danger. Retractable cords are also popular. A short cord hangs way up at the top of your window and retracts back to safety as soon as you activate it. So, if you have to have a cord, don’t worry…you can have safety, too.
