According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, window coverings with dangling cords are among the top five hazards in American homes. With October as Child Safety Month, now is the perfect time to evaluate the safety of your window treatments. Here at Window Treats, serving Middleton NJ and surrounding areas, we have a variety of child-safe window covering options.
Cordless Window Coverings for Child Safety
Cordless by design, the Hunter Douglas shutter collection eliminates the potential safety hazards that traditional corded window treatments pose. Shutters aren’t your only option for cordless window fashions. Virtually every Hunter Douglas window covering comes with a cordless and/or motorization option. Our LiteRise® system allows you to easily raise and lower window treatments with no cords and is compatible with these popular window fashions:
- Applause® & Duette® Honeycomb Shades
- EverWood® Collection Alternative Wood Blinds
- Modern Precious Metals® & Natural Elements™ Aluminum Blinds
- Nantucket™ & Silhouette® Window Shadings
- Parkland™ Wood Blinds
- Pleated Shades
- Solera™ Soft Shades
- Vignette® Modern Roman Shades
With the Simplelift™ system, simply use the bottom rail of your honeycomb shades to raise and lower shades. Our clutch lifting systems use a spring-like clutch to control screen shades and roller shades. Wand control is another option, particular for vertical applications such as:
- Luminette® Privacy Sheers & Modern Draperies
- Provenance® Woven Wood Shades
- Skyline® Gliding Window Panels
- Vertical Blinds
Motorized Window Coverings for Child Safety
The ultimate in child safe window treatments, motorized blinds and shades replace cords with automated operation with a remote, wireless wall switch or mobile device. Most of our Hunter Douglas window fashions can be motorized using the latest Platinum motorization technology. Your options for motorized systems include:
- The PowerRise® with Platinum™ Technology window treatment automation system is compatible with all Hunter Douglas blinds and shades that can be raised and lowered.
- PowerGlide® systems are available for window treatments that traverse side to side, like our privacy sheers, modern draperies, gliding window panels, and other vertical blind options.
- PowerTilt systems automate blinds with horizontal slats. Whether you have blinds made of wood, metal, or hybrid material, motorization options allow you complete control over light and privacy.
