Cord & Chain Tension Devices For Child Safety

All our window treatments are compliant with Health Canada’s Corded Window Coverings Regulations. For more information on Elite’s corded window coverings policy, click here. Tension devices are always provided and must be properly installed to keep cord/chains tight to prevent possible entanglement and strangulation. In addition, if the tension device is loosened from the wall or window frame or is pulled out entirely, it must be reinstalled promptly as the tension device will disrupt the cord or chain and prevent the window treatment from operating properly.


All corded window treatments manufactured and supplied by Elite Window Fashions™ will be supplied with the warning label. This label will be attached to the bottom bar of the window treatment.

Automated shades

Blinds and shades with internal electric motors eliminate the hazards of cord and chain controls. Motors can be powered by battery packs (rechargeable or replaceable batteries), DC low voltage power, or AC 120V power. Automated shades can also be set to timers and schedules which assist with direct sunlight for added comfort, privacy, and energy savings.
