Home Fashions U is glad to be a part of National Window Coverings Safety Month. We will be offering 20% off all Safe-t-Shade Products for the month of October.
Lora Scott, Director of Customer Service at Safe-t-Shade sent this notice out this morning and I wanted to share it with you.
As many of you know, the SAFE-T-SHADE mission is to eliminate infant strangulation due to cords on blinds and shades. Behind that mission, we have designed, tested, proven and patented (six patents pending) the first and only 100% cordless lift system of its type in the industry while enhancing fashion as well as providing a reduction in your lift system cost.
Many of you have asked explicitly, ‘Is the new SAFE-T-SHADE Cordless Lift System accepted by the WCMA under the new safety standards?’ and ‘Is the new SAFE-T-SHADE Cordless Lift System accepted by the Consumer Product Safety Commission?’ The answer is an emphatic ‘YES!’
While neither of these oversight organizations can approve or endorse a company or its products neither of these organizations will object to your immediate incorporation of the SAFE-T-SHADE Cordless Lift System. In fact, after the CPSC reviewed and tested our Cordless Lift System, their focus was to encourage us to keep driving costs down for the benefit of your customers. Similarly, because the SAFE-T-SHADE Cordless Lift System surpasses the new safety standards for ‘corded shades’, the WCMA added ‘Appendix E’ to address ‘wide lift cords’ (narrow lift cords can still ‘loop’ and strangle an infant).
The new SAFE-T-SHADE 100% cordless, non-loopable lift system completely eliminates all risk of infant strangulation due to cords because it has no cords: no inner cords; no outer cords and no pull cords. We are very pleased to share with you that the SAFE-T-SHADE Cordless Lift System is the solution to your need for ‘fashion with guaranteed safety.’
Therefore, in these tumultuous and transitional times, and consistent with the entire industry’s eager pursuit to eliminate infant strangulation due to cords, Home Fashions U will offer on all Cordless Shade Kits through Window Covering Safety Month (October), 20% off our regular price.
