Window Treatment Safety In New York

The American National Standard For Safety Of Corded Window Covering Products went into effect June 1, 2024. This standard requires the majority window treatments sold in the US to have cordless mechanisms or have cords that come with special safety devices. It serves as an essential effort toward phasing out corded window treatments that pose a strangulation danger to small children.

A New Window Cover Safety Standard

The Window Covering Manufacturers Association and American National Standards Institute has established the new safety measure for window treatment products. ANSI/WCMA A100.1-2022 is a voluntary precaution that establishes new requirements 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.”

Beginning June 1, 2024, window treatments sold in the USA must follow this safety standard. The majority of products will convert to cordless designs. Treatments that use a continuous loop must include a kind of tension device that keeps the loop from becoming a strangulation threat. These measures will significantly reduce the chance of window treatment cord injuries and fatalities among young children.
