Child Safety Window Treatments

WE DESIGN WITH SAFETY IN MIND—A RESPONSIBILITY WE TAKE VERY SERIOUSLY

Child safety is serious business. Child safety continues to be one of the most critical issues we can address today. Injuries to young children often happen at home because this is where they spend most of their time. Children are innately curious about the world around them. So, even essential household items like window fashions can turn into potential hazards for them.

That 's why Lovitt Blinds & Drapery is committed to offering a full range of Hunter Douglas products that are safe for Infants, young children & pets. Hunter Douglas developed a wide range of window treatments to help significantly reduce the risk of accidents by eliminating potentially hazardous free-hanging or exposed operating cords. Visit www.lovittblinds.com to see our full collection of Hunter Douglas products and learn more about the many safety features that they offer.

CHILD SAFETY IS SERIOUS BUSINESS

Hunter Douglas offer many innovative operating systems designed with safety, convenience and beauty in mind, from cordless alternatives to motorized systems. Choose from an abundant array of colors and materials that complement your nursery today and your teen’s room tomorrow.

INDUSTRY-LEADING SAFETY SOLUTIONS

CORDLESS OPERATING SYSTEMS

LITERISE® With our LiteRise® cordless operating system you simply use your fingers to raise or lower the product. The LiteRise system eliminates the need to have an operating cord, while also offering a more streamlined appearance. This system is available with many of our products.

SIMPLELIFT™ A value-priced alternative to the LiteRise system, the SimpleLift™ system enhances both beauty and safety. Just raise and lower with the contoured bottom rail—no handle or cords required with this cordless operating system.

POWERVIEW® MOTORIZATION Most Hunter Douglas window fashions are available with PowerView® Motorization, which provides effortless, cordless operation. With the PowerView App*, you can program your shades to reposition on a schedule that you set. Or use the decorative Pebble® remote to move your shades on command. PowerView Motorization also integrates seamlessly with many other smart home automation systems. *Additional equipment required for programmed operation.

A FAMILY OF PRODUCTS TO ENHANCE SAFETY

DUETTE® ULTRAGLIDE® This convenient click and walk away system uses a retractable wand mechanism to raise and lower shades. Featured on our popular Duette® honeycomb shades, this system enhances child and pet safety.

COMBINATION WAND/CORD This combination function integrates both tilt and traverse functions into one easy-to-use control that keeps the cord taut and out of the reach of children.

CORD TENSIONER Our cord tensioner is designed with spring tension and bracket. When properly installed, it holds looped cords taut to reduce the risk of child entanglement.

WARNING NOTIFICATIONS

The window coverings industry uses warning tags, warning labels and other methods to communicate the potential hazards of corded window fashions. The warnings shown here, for example, communicate the important message about cords being a potential strangulation hazard, and suggest choosing cordless alternatives or products with inaccessible cords. Together with the Window Covering Safety Council, Hunter Douglas encourages you to install only cordless window fashions in locations where young children are typically present, especially where they play and sleep.

PREVENTION BEGINS WITH AWARENESS

• Position cribs, beds, playpens and other furniture away from windows.

• Check your current window fashions for exposed or dangling cords. Move cords out of reach of children.

• If possible, replace corded window fashions with cordless options.

• Permanently anchor continuous-loop window fashion cords to the wall.
