Budget Blinds offers technologies to ensure your child's safety

BUDGET BLINDS - Craig and JodieParents would do anything to keep their children safe yet window treatments are often an overlooked hazard. The cords on window blinds are known as "the silent killers" because a curious or determined infant, toddler, or child can strangle themselves without a sound, often even with a caregiver nearby. Tucking the cords behind the curtain simply is not enough.

Budget Blinds offers a wide variety of innovative solutions which have safety as a top priority. Convenient cordless alternatives such as Vertiglide, LiteRise or SimpleLift allow you to simply raise and lower the blinds with your fingers. Many of Budget Blinds' window treatments are available with PowerView Motorization, which allows you to easily raise and lower the blinds by remote, wireless wall switch, or even from your smartphone or tablet!

If you're not able to replace all your window treatments at this time, Budget Blinds also offers safety solutions such as wands, cord tensioners and cord cleats which keep cords taut, wrapped, and well away from curious fingers. Don't assume that older kids are safe—accidents have been reported with children up to eight years old. Concerned parents may also want to consider pulling furniture away from windows and replacing the blinds one window at a time. Budget Blinds' cordless honeycomb shades are a great economical option.
