“With five deaths and 16 near-strangulations from Roman shades reported and three deaths connected to roll-up blinds, The Consumer Product Safety Commission and window covering industry urged parents this week to make sure the shades and blinds in their home have no cord children can access,” said Christian Sinatra, CEO of DrapeStyle. “Being a leader in the custom drape and window treatment industry, we felt the need to respond by immediately making available to the consumer the safe new Easy Pull Traverse Drapery Rod System with Child Safe® System from Paris Texas Hardware. With this new system the cord length can easily be adjusted by parents or adults to keep it out of the reach of babies, toddlers, and small children, while the safe single cord prevents entanglement should contact occur,” concluded Sinatra.
