Comfortex Is Committed To Window Covering Child Safety
Comfortex is dedicated to preventing accidents involving children and pets by raising the awareness of the dangers of accessible cords and by providing child-safe custom window fashions.
Blinds and shades that are improperly installed or out of safety compliance can pose a potential strangulation hazard to young children. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, corded window coverings are among the top hidden hazards in American homes.
“Best For Kids” Certified Program
Window Covering Manufacturers Association (WCMA) announced the industry’s first third-party certification program designed to help consumers and retailers identify window covering products that are best suited for use in homes with young children.
To be part of the new Best for Kids program, products are submitted to a WCMA-recognized third party testing laboratory where the products are required to and must meet stringent criteria. Once the products meet these criteria, they are “Certified Best For Kids”. Comfortex is proud to have a number of products “Certified Best For Kids”.
