Each year, hundreds of children are hurt by window blinds and shades. A trip to the ER can be a traumatic experience for both the child and the parent. To prevent the occurrence of these injuries and preserve children, it was quintessential to stop the production of all shades and blinds with cords in Canada. As a result, a rule to ban the production of such shades and blinds was enacted in May 2022. In response to this law, several window shade and blind manufacturers turned their attention to the production of cordless products that are safe for children.
Fenstermann LLC was founded in 2003 by Ingo Scholz is among the few companies that have begun the development and distribution of cordless window shades and blinds. The company was established in 2003 to provide high-quality window coverings and since entering the Canadian market; it has positioned itself as a leading provider of new and exciting made-in-Germany window options.
Today, the company is pleased to announce one of its range of made-in-Germany window products has been certified as a safe option for protecting children. The Child Safe Blinds and Shades are the only top-down/bottom-up shades in the world that have passed the stringent requirements for child safety – tested and approved by Bureau Veritas, North America's leading testing lab.
“The Canadian market prohibited the sale of all shades with any cord longer than 8 inches in May 2022 and the US Consumer Product Safety Commission strongly suggests not using any cords on window coverings either,” explained Ingo Scholz, the CEO of Fenstermann LLC. “This is why we are making the Child Safe Blinds and Shades available in Canada. It is part of our contribution to making this world a safer place for children to live, cutting one cord at a time.”
Passing the Bureau Veritas test for child safe blinds, the Fenstermann Child Safe Blinds and Shades will now be prepared for launch and sale. It is scheduled to be stocked for sale in January 2023. The product is currently patent pending in the United States, Canada, and EU. For more information, please visit https://fenstermann.com/fenstermann-llc/.
