Hunter Douglas Alta Window Fashions Child Safety for Window Coverings – Blinds and Shades

WHY WE CARE. AND WHY YOU SHOULD.

Awareness and education are frontline warriors in the eternal campaign to keep loved ones safe. Alta knows it’s not enough to simply produce and offer products that meet that goal; we want to partner with you to make smart, informed choices for your home and your family. From inspiration to purchase.

The challenge. Window treatment cords present a potential strangulation hazard to young children and pets. 

Accidents with window treatment cords often involve older products that do not conform to current safety standards. We strongly encourage you to retrofit or replace corded window treatments with current safer designs in accordance with the recommendations of the Window Covering Safety Council (WCSC) and the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Council (CPSC) who advocate that only cordless window coverings be used in homes with small children.

TIPS & TACTICS

Armed with information, you can reduce or eliminate those risks and decorate through thoughtful design. In fact, click here to download a copy of our Child Safety Control Options Brochure for a quick reference guide.

WE SUPPORT AND PROMOTE THE FOLLOWING SAFETY CHECKLIST IN CONJUNCTION WITH WCSC AND CPSC:

  • Move all furniture, cribs, beds and climbable surfaces away from windows.
  • Install only cordless window coverings in homes with young children.
  • Check your current window treatments for exposed or dangling cords. To order a free retrofit kit for older window treatments, contact the Window Covering Safety Council directly: 1-800-506-4636 info@windowcoverings.org, www.windowcoverings.org
  • Make sure tasseled pull cords are as short as possible. Continuous-loop pull cords on draperies and vertical blinds should be pulled tight and anchored to the floor or wall.
  • Be sure cord stops are properly installed and adjusted to limit inner-cord movement.
  • Keep all window cords well out of the reach of children.

CHOICES, CHOICES, CHOICES

As a leader in cordless innovation, Alta Window Fashions ensures style and peace of mind work hand-in-hand. In each of our collections, there are smart options that enhance the safety of window treatments to help protect your children and pets.

we got 3 quotes on blinds and Atlanta Discount Blinds beat all of them. The best costumer service with ordering and amazing installation. Such a pleasure. And the blinds are exactly what we wanted!! Love love love them!

We got five quotes from other companies on our plantation shutters.  Dave had the best price; one was $3000 higher!  I was hesitant to go with the lowest price, but WOW are they beautiful.  Bruce installed them and even touched up the paint where holes were left.

You need to look no further – use Atlanta Discount Blinds.

Dave Ross installed blinds for us in our new home.  That was nearly 3 years ago.  The blinds have been fantastic, but one.  We developed a problem with one blind after 2+ years of use.  Discount Blinds of Atlanta warranties their blinds for life.  True to his word, Dave came out and replaced the blind at no charge.  I love dealing with honest people.

We are very pleased with the work done to install our honeycomb blinds! Before contacting Atlanta Discount Blinds we got estimates from a couple of other places and Atlanta Discount Blinds beat them out by a lot. We will definitely contact them for any future work for window treatments. Thank you!

Thanks Dave and Atlanta Discount Blinds. We love our new shades!  They are beautiful, functional, and let just enough light in.  Thank you for your awesome customer service.

Buying Blinds from Atlanta Discount Blinds was a great choice. Dave and Mark were always friendly and helpful. Very professional and knowledgeable about your blind needs. Fast and efficient from measuring to install. Highly recommend this team. 

Dave came out to my fathers Chiropractic office within the timeframe of us opening the new office. Not only does Dave and Cindy have the pricing that nobody can beat but they went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure we got nothing but the best service in the industry. Thank you Dave! 

I have used this company twice and have been satisfied with their work. Dave is helpful and knowledgeable and the installation process is fast and efficient.

From the quote to the install everything was handled with professionalism. The blinds are beautiful and for a beautiful price 🙂 Thanks Dave and team!

Dave came to our home on time and was a wonderful help to us as we tried to get some window treatments for our new custom home in Sandy Springs. I was so happy to have such a personable, friendly experience. He did a great job measuring the windows and offering us lots of elegant options for the windows. I will definitely use him again.
