How This New Rule in Window Coverings Will Affect You

Masonside Blinds & Drapery |


There has been a growing concern that the operating cords of window coverings pose a danger to children and pets. Consequently, the Canadian government has mandated that manufacturers should eliminate this hazard and has given until the middle of 2021 to comply.

Apart from keeping children and pets safer, a further bonus is that the elimination of cords will make the product more aesthetically pleasing. However, alternate methods such as cordless tensioners or motorization will have to be introduced, which will invariably hike the cost.

The increase in product cost puts the impetus on the manufacturers to create solutions that will demonstrate unique features. They know that if they come out with a multi-layered approach, then the consumer will be won over by the new and improved design.

However, the benefits of a new product will only be accepted by the consumer if the additional cost is directly tied to an increase in perceived value. So, it's hoped that when the industry comes up with suitable options, the customer can select one that suits their needs and budget.
