Gilbert, AZ (Vocus) October 20, 2009
Select Blinds, in recognition of Window Covering Safety Month, announces that they have recently added a 1/2" Single Cell Cordless Cell Shade that sells for less than $50 on most sizes.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced in September 2003, that the month of October would be designated as “Window covering safety month”. The CPSC urges consumers to repair or replace all window coverings purchased before 2001. Window cords and chains pose a potential hazard, and should be kept out of reach of young children and pets.
SelectBlinds’ products are 100% CPSC compliant. And although compliant, many of their products do use lift cords. These products all contain safety cord cleats. Select Blinds understands that the surest way to eliminate all cord or chain risk, is to eliminate the cord altogether. As the father of two, including a newborn, Select Blinds Founder and CMO, Rick Steele, pushed the merchandising team to find a value priced cordless cell shade. The result of this effort is the 1/2" Light Filtering Cordless Cell Shade.
The 1/2" Light Filtering Cordless Cell Shade is available in 4 beautiful decorator colors, and is priced below $50 for sizes up to 36” wide by 60” in length. The 36” x 60” size is as big as the majority of window shades purchased, making this child safety cordless cell shade a sure winner.
Select Blinds encourages consumers to shop their entire site for additional cordless products. Most cell shades can be ordered with the cordless option, and roller shades can be ordered with a cordless spring clutch mechanism, making them an excellent safety choice as well.
Buying new window shades and window blinds might not be a viable option for all consumers, so Select Blinds, in complete agreement with the CPSC, recommends that all lift cords and tilt cords should be kept out of reach of small children. This can be accomplished by utilizing a cord cleat, which is easily mounted to the window frame, or the wall next to the window. The lift and tilt cords should be wrapped around the cleat every time.
