The safety of your loved ones is important to us. For that reason, we focus on child safety concerning all types of window coverings.
Roll up shades are not a child-safe product due to the accessible looped cords. Even with basic safety measures, these shades still pose a danger to children. Fix My Blinds encourages you to replace your roll-up shades with safer window coverings. Cordless window coverings are best for kids.
Identification and Background
Roll-up shades are typically composed of light filtering fabric or woven matchstick material. They consist of a system of pulleys, guides, and strings that rolls the window treatment material up from the bottom. These are often made from bamboo, grass, or vinyl. Sometimes these shades don’t even have a locking mechanism to keep them up. The cord may simply wrap around a cord cleat. These types of shades are often seen outside on patios, in gazebos or as part of enclosed porches and sunrooms.
