Best for Kids

Southern Blinds & Shutters

Best for Kids™ Certification Program.


As parents, we want what's best for our children. And as you already know, good parents care about the safety of their children. That's why Southern Blinds & Shutters can offer you a variety of products that are certified Best for Kids™. So what exactly does that mean?

The Best for Kids™ certification program was created to help educate consumers about potential window-cord hazards that young children face. That way, you can make the right choice when picking out window coverings for your home or business.

Products are Tested and Approved to get Certified.

Not just any window covering manufacturer can call themselves Best for Kids™ certified. First, manufacturers must meet certain program criteria set by the Window Covering Safety Council (WCSC). Window covering manufacturers must also submit their products to a third-party testing lab. And only after those products pass testing, can they be labeled Best for Kids™.

Best for Kids™ products either have no cords or have no operating cords plus inner cords that are not accessible. If accessible inner cords are present in products that don't have operating cords, the inner cords can't create a dangerous loop.

"Parents with young children should replace their corded window coverings with the cordless products available," explained Peter Rush, Executive Director of the Window Covering Safety Council. He also added that the "new 'Best for Kids' certification label recently launched makes it easy for parents and caregivers to easily identify which products are best suited for their home."
