“Concern about child safety around window covering cords has always been an issue, and we are taking a proactive approach to ensuring the ongoing safety of our products. We’ve taken the guidance provided by our WCMA membership and ensured that our product meets all necessary specifications,” Braden McCormick, president of United Shade, said in a news release.

He added, “RVing has become a great lifestyle for families young and old, and we want safety to be a non-issue when it comes to new window coverings. In this, as with our product lines in general, people can count on United Shade to be proactive in seeking the best and safest products for our industry.”

The Dicor Corporation, based in Elkhart, Ind., serves the RV industry through its affiliated companies: Dicor Products, Seal Design, United Shade and Vixen Composites. An affiliate of United Shade, Window Expressions, also serves the residential and commercial construction markets.
