Window Treatment Safety In Virginia Beach

Beginning June 1, 2024,The American National Standard For Safety Of Corded Window Covering Products went into effect. This standard requires almost all window treatments sold in the US to be cordless or have cords that come with special safety devices. This stands as an essential effort toward phasing out the use of cords that pose a strangulation danger to little children.

A New Window Cover Safety Standard

The Window Covering Manufacturers Association and American National Standards Institute has established an updated safety requirement for window covering products. ANSI/WCMA A100.1-2022 is a precaution that spells out 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 treatments sold in the US need to follow the new safety standard. The bulk of products will convert to cordless styles. Treatments that use a continuous loop operating system must include a compliant tension device that prevents the loop from becoming a strangulation hazard. These requirements will greatly lessen the number of window treatment cord injuries and deaths among small children.
