Designed with safety in mind

Children are innately curious about the world around them.  So, even basic household items like window treatments can turn into potential hazards for them.

Prevention begins with awareness:

  • Position cribs, beds, playpens and other furniture on walls without windows and window cords.
  • Check your current window treatments for exposed or dangling cords.
  • Keep cords out of reach of children.
  • Eliminate any dangling cords with cordless window treatments.
  • Permanently anchor continuous cord loop window coverings to the floor or wall.

Check your window coverings for exposed or dangling cords that can pose a safety hazard to infants, young children and even pets. It is recommended that corded window coverings be replaced or retrofitted with today’s safer products.

From cordless alternatives to motorized operation systems, Hunter Douglas offers many innovative lifting systems designed with safety, convenience and beauty in mind.  Choose from an abundant array of colours and materials that compliment your nursery today and your teen’s room tomorrow.

Making window fashions safer for homes with infants, young children and pets is a top priority at Hunter Douglas.  That’s why they’ve developed a wide range of products to help reduce the risk of accidents.  Some of the innovative, creative and beautiful solutions available include; LiteRise®, SimpleLift™, UltraGlide®, and Motorization.

With the LiteRise® cordless operating system you simply use your fingers to raise or lower the product.  LiteRise will eliminate the need to have an operating cord, while also offering a more streamline appearance.
