Third Party Certifications for Safety


Parents for Window Blind Safety (PFWBS) Seal of Approval

Parents for Window Blind Safety Parents for Window Blind Safety (PFWBS) has granted their safety certification to Blink® Blinds + Glass products. PFWBS strongly urges parents to use window coverings without accessible cords in homes with children. Window covering safety plays a vital role in saving the lives of children in preventable accidents. Although all window covering products must be manufactured in compliance with the ANSI/WCMA A1000.2012 safety standard, some can still injure children. PFWBS created the Seal of Approval program over a decade ago to inform consumers of products which have greatly reduced or eliminated the risk of injury to children or pets.

The PFWBS Seal of Approval is a true third-party certification program that performs an additional product assessment which highlights the best features of your product to retailers and helps consumers make the safest choice for window coverings.

Before giving the PFWBS "Seal of Approval," products are sent to the PFWBS Testing Committee for evaluation and review. The PFWBS testing committee reviews independent safety testing and performs a product assessment. Additional testing and reviewing is also performed by accredited testing labs to determine if the product meets the PFWBS safety criteria.

Window Covering Manufacturers Association (WCMA) Best for Kids Certificate

Certified Best for Kids Window Coverings Manufacturers Association (WCMA) has granted their Best for Kids safety rating to the Blink IG blind. Products under WCMA's (Window Covering Manufacturers Association) "Certified Best for Kids" program must pass stringent requirements to be listed as a suitable product for homes with young children and pets. This third-party certification program provides recognizable assurances that consumers seek. This easily recognized label is used as an identifier for products that meet these safety qualifications. The Best for Kids rating applies to only the Blink IG blind, and not the entire window or door in which the Blink IG blind is installed. No catalogs or promotions may state or imply that the full assembly of the door or window is certified to the Best for Kids safety rating.
