Recognizing Child Safety Month

At the Heart of Hartmann&Forbes – Safety by Design
November spotlights Child Safety, but for us, safety and health are at the forefront of everything we do, every day of the year.  We make key decisions throughout the design, weaving, and crafting process of our natural windowcoverings to ensure our products do not endanger those around them. Our Safety by Design™ Initiative is meant to communicate these safety considerations.

Our Dedication to Safety
We remain steadfast in our dedication to make windowcoverings that meet or exceed safety guidelines as prescribed by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the Window Covering Manufacturers Association (WCMA). We conduct ongoing testing to ensure that our windowcoverings are safe to operate, and continually strive to research and engineer innovative solutions and techniques to further improve shade safety.

Contributing to In-Home Health
We minimize the use of additives that may off-gas and reduce indoor air quality. We use natural techniques to achieve rich color tones and low or no VOC paints, stains, and adhesives whenever possible. As a result, our products have a minimal impact on air quality within an interior environment.
