Windows are an integral part of any home. They provide ventilation, natural light, and a beautiful view of the outdoors. However, as much as windows are essential, it’s crucial to ensure that your window treatments are safe for everyone in your home, especially children and pets.

Louver Shop values safety above all else and offers a range of window treatment solutions that are both stylish and safe.

The Importance of Window Treatment Safety

Incorrectly installed or maintained window treatments can pose a significant safety hazard to children and pets. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), custom window coverings with accessible operating cords over 8 inches pose an unreasonable risk of strangulation to children eight years and younger.

The CPSC recommends that parents and caregivers use only cordless window treatments in homes with young children or ensure any corded window treatment is installed and operated correctly and well maintained.

We at Louver Shop understand the importance of window treatment safety and take all necessary measures to ensure our products are safe for your family. Our window treatments are designed to prioritize safety while not compromising on style and functionality.
