The window covering industry is definitely making huge strides in accommodating families with the latest and greatest in window covering fashions, while maintaining child/pet safety. The main issue with child safety is in the cord operation of the blind or shade.  If the cords self-retract, have a breakaway feature or there are no lift cords…then it is considered a child safe product. 

The lifting systems that have proven to be child safe are:

  • UltraGlide® – this is a lifting system exclusive to Hunter Douglas, the cord self retracts back to the original position, eliminated long cords
  • Cordless – this system allows you to raise and lower the shade without a lift cord, thus eliminating potentially hazardous cords
  • Motorized or Power shades – similar to the cordless shade, the cords are eliminated.
