Eclipse Shutters is now Best for Kids Certified!

Eclipse® Shutters is proud to announce their Best for Kids™ certification!

Child safety is important not only to Eclipse Shutters, but to the entire window covering industry.

The Best for Kids certification is a brand new safety program put forth by the WCMA (Window Covering Manufacturers Association). This is the industry’s first third party certification program designed to help consumers and retailers easily identify products that are safe to use in homes with young children.

The Best for Kids program requires manufacturers who want to be a part of the program to meet stringent criteria, and to submit those appropriate products to a third party testing facility laboratory recognized by the WCMA. The products go through multiple lab tests to guarantee they are not dangerous for children. Products certified under this program will be eligible to be listed and labeled, on packaging and merchandising materials, as “certified.” These products are easily identifiable for purchase by consumers, designers, landlords and child care facilities. This program will also allow retailers to easily promote these certified products.

The products that qualify either have no operating cords or have cords that are not accessible, as defined in Appendix C of ANSI/WCMA A100.1-2012.

In addition to being Best for Kids certified, Eclipse Shutters’ products are energy-efficient, GREENGUARD Gold certified and come with an industry leading 25-year warranty.
