Redi Shade Offers Tips and Products in Support of
National Window Covering Safety Month
COTATI, CAÃ¢â‚¬” October 7, 2009Ã¢â‚¬”Redi Shade, the worldâ€˜s premier manufacturer of cord-free window coverings, is proud to support National Window Covering Safety Month (October 2009) to help educate parents and caregivers about safe options for window coverings.
Children and window cords don't mix: since 1990, more than 300 infants and young children have died from accidentally strangling in window cords, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. To maximize safety for homes with children, the Window Covering Safety Council advises:
Ã¢â‚¬¢Install only cordless window coverings in young childrenâ€˜s bedrooms and play areas.
Ã¢â‚¬¢Move all cribs, beds, and furniture away from windows and window cords, preferably to another wall.
Ã¢â‚¬¢Replace corded shades manufactured before 2001 with a cordless shade or other more recent window covering.
Safety has always been a priority at Redi Shade. In fact, their Original clipped shade, made in the U.S.A., has been recognized as the safest in the industry. It has no cordsÃ¢â‚¬”hanging or hiddenÃ¢â‚¬”and offers a clean, customizable look for any room.

With trim-at-home ease, no-drill/no-screw Ã¢â‚¬Å“almost instantÃ¢â‚¬ installation, Redi Shade cordless window coverings not only help make parentsâ€˜ lives easier, but also give them peace of mind that theyâ€˜re providing the safest environment possible for their children and pets.
