Health Canada
All Universal Blinds products and programs, effective April 11, 2022, sell only products that are following the Corded Window Coverings Regulations (CWCR) that will be fully enforced starting May 1, 2022. The CWCR severely limits the length and pull force of any cord on a product, which affects most every window covering category. For more details, please read the regulations here.

WHY WE CARE. AND WHY YOU SHOULD TOO.

The challenge. Window treatment cords present a potential strangulation hazard to young children and pets.

To be compliant with the Health Canada Corded Window Coverings Regulations (CWCR), we will not sell any products deemed unsafe by Health Canada.oman shade_literise_in childs room

TIPS AND TACTICS

Armed with information, you can reduce or eliminate those risks and decorate through thoughtful design. In fact, download a copy of our Child Safety Control Options Brochure for a quick reference guide.

We support the Health Canada initiatives and have provided a checklist of requirements:

Move all furniture, cribs, beds, and climbable surfaces away from windows.

Install only cordless window coverings in homes with young children.

Check your current window treatments for exposed or dangling cords and replace them with products that meet the CWCR standard.
