      Cord Safety


      We Design With Safety In Mind

      We take child safety seriously, so we developed products that eliminate potentially hazardous free-hanging or exposed operating cords. Window coverings with exposed or dangling cords are among the leading home hazards for infants and young children. Cordless window coverings are an ideal alternative to those with cords for child-proofing a space.


      Automated shading systems are inherently cord-free. And with Somfy Automation, you can adjust them using a wall switch, keypad, handheld remote, or even a smart phone or tablet.

      Warning Notifications

      The window coverings industry uses warning tags, labels and other methods to communicate the potential hazards of corded window coverings. The warning shown here, for example, communicates the important message about cords being a potential strangulation hazard and suggests choosing cordless or inaccessible-cord alternatives.
