Legrand Shading Systems today introduced Cord Keeper, a safe, compliant solution for chain-operated shades. The Cord Keeper complies with existing chain regulations, including ANSI/WCMA A100.1-2018 in the U.S. and the latest corded window covering regulations under the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (SOR/2019-97). Cord Keeper can be ordered with any new manual shades or can be retrofitted to most shades on the market that use a #10 bead chain, extending safety to existing applications.
To raise the shade to the desired height, press the lever up and then move the slider up and down. To lower, press the lever down and repeat moving the slider up and down. Cord Keeper installs in four steps. Its switch mechanism comes preinstalled and the cover is cut to size with the appropriate labeling for each shade. The Cord Keeper mechanism can either hang freely or be anchored with the included anchor to the window jamb. With a low-profile design that doesn’t impede the view, it’s suitable for a variety of shading sizes and applications.
In addition to manual shades, the company is well known for its automated roller shades, which are the only option in the market with a patented manual override control in the event of a power outage or misplaced controller. Its battery-powered shades come with alkaline batteries that are hidden inside and are ready to program with a simple tug. Legrand’s battery and wired motorized products are available in the narrowest sizes on the market — as small as 15.5 inches wide — and can be made in sizes up to 13 feet wide by 15 feet tall in select fabric options. The diverse fabric lineup features over 100 collections, over 750 fabrics and several colors. The company’s Quick Ship Program ships Legrand’s shades within 10 business days.
