Cord Safety


The Window Covering Safety Council is working constantly to improve processes,
maximize benefits, and above all, ensure your safety and the safety of your family.
As a leader in the window coverings industry, VOOM Window Fashions
manufacturers have added the following features to their exceptional window
treatments, to protect consumers from potentially serious accidents:

  •  Tension pulleys and tie-down devices to keep continuous-loop pull cords taut
  •  Tassel ends on lift cords that reduce any risk of entanglement               
  •  Cord stops on horizontal blinds that prevent internal cords from slipping
  •  Cordless lift and motorized lift options that offer ultimate safety‒eliminating

    the standard cord that could strangle children or pets

The Window Coverings Safety Council


The Window Covering Safety Council urges parents and caregivers to check all
windows for potential cord hazards and make the necessary safety updates:

  • Install only cordless window coverings in bedrooms for young children
  • Replace window blinds, corded shades, and draperies manufactured
    before 2001 with products that meet updated safety standards
  • If replacement is not possible, repair window blinds, corded shades, and
    draperies manufactured before 2001 with retrofit cord kits, available by
    emailing or calling 1-800-506-4636
  • Move all cribs, beds, furniture, and toys away from windows and cords
  • Keep all window pull cords and inner lift cords out of children's reach
  • Make sure that tasseled pull cords are short and continuous-loop cords
    are permanently anchored to the floor or wall
  •      Cord stops must be properly installed and adjusted to limit the movement
    of inner lift cords
  •  Lock cords into position whenever horizontal blinds or shades are lowered,
    including when they come to rest on a window sill
