How To Choose Pet and Child Safe Window Treatments?

Dog and kids

Since December 2018, there has been a new window covering safety standard to protect children and pets from older types of window treatments with dangling cords. Both young children and pets alike have become entangled in the cords, and it has caused strangulation issues that could actually lead to death. You can now have peace of mind with the modern window treatment selection that is safe for all family members.

Safety For All Family Members

Clear Fortress Window Solutions is a family-owned business, and we care for your family just as we do for our own. We offer several windows covering solutions for families that will keep your entire family safe while being easy to operate and look fantastic. We offer the following family safe options:

· Motorized Blinds & Shades

· Cellular Shades

· Cordless Blinds

· Roller Shades

Motorized Blinds & Shades for Smart Homes

Michigan motorized window treatments are a great addition to your Smart home system, and they are compatible with your existing Smart home hub items. With just the touch of a button, you can open and close your automated blinds and shades, and there are no cords on them whatsoever. Dangling cords are not just unsafe, but they can also be quite messy looking.

Motorized window coverings give you peace of mind in so many ways. The safety feature is definitely the number one concern, but since you can program them to open and close at preset times, they will also save you a great deal of money on your energy bill when they automatically close at the hottest part of the day to keep out hot summer sunlight.

You can control motorized solutions in several ways. You can use a handheld or wall-mounted remote control, or you can operate these window coverings from an app on your Smartphone or tablet. You can also call on your home assistant to adjust your window treatments by voice commands. You don’t even need to be at home for full operation.

You also get an added layer of security because you won’t forget to close your window treatments before you leave home for any reason, and thieves would rather target a home where they can see inside to look at your valuables.

You also save valuable time on a daily basis–and this is something we all know we need more of in this modern-day hustle and bustle world. You won’t need to walk to each window and physically open the window coverings in the mornings, then close them before your leave home or at night before bedtime.

Motorized Blinds & Shades for Smart Homes

Cellular Shades For Safety And Energy Efficiency

Cellular shades, or honeycomb shades as they are commonly called, are highly energy-efficient window coverings. They contain small cells in between two pieces of material, and these cells trap the hot air next to your window in the summer, and the cold air next to your window in the winter. This means that the outside temperatures don’t affect your indoor temperatures near as much as some other options. In return, it takes less energy to keep your home at a comfortable temperature all year long.

Cellular shades match any home decor you may have, and they have clean, lined pleats as a modern window treatment, so you don’t need to sacrifice style for family safety. These shades are also available in the top-down, bottom-up orientation where you can open the top half of your window shades or the bottom half independently of each other for great lighting control.

Modern Cordless Blinds

Horizontal blinds have always been a popular item because they are available in many different materials and finishes, they are very durable and long-lasting, and they are affordable as well. The original styles did have the cords that you would pull to raise and lower the blinds, however, the modern versions are absolutely cordless and family safe.

To raise and lower cordless blinds, you merely grasp the center of the bottom rail and gently lift them up or down to the height you want, and they stay put in this position. You can also tilt the vanes in them for filtered light, if you wish.

You can choose your finish of beautiful hardwood and faux wood, vinyl in many colors, or aluminum.

Clean and Crisp Roller Shades

Roller shades are made of fabric, and when they are down, they have crisp and clean lines because they appear as a flat sheet of fabric. Roller shades operate on the same principle as cordless blinds do, making them safe for all family members.

Roller shades match with any decor you may have in your home because you have literally thousands of choices in fabric colors, patterns, types, and weights. They can be a single neutral color to be minimalistic, or you can choose a bright and cheery pattern for a child’s room.
