Are ODL Add-on Blinds for Doors safe for children and pets?
ODL Add-on Blinds for Doors have received the Parents for Window Blind Safety (PWBS) Seal of Approval and the Window Covering Manufacturers Association (WCMA) Best for Kids certificate. Both organizations strongly urge parents to use window coverings without accessible cords in homes with children.

Window covering safety helps keep children safe from preventable accidents. The PWBS 'Safe for Kids' Seal of Approval identifies products that greatly reduce or completely eliminate the risk of injury to children and pets. Only cordless window coverings, or those with inaccessible cords, are eligible to be certified by a third-party testing lab as 'Safe for Kids.'

WCMA Best for Kids certification is available for cordless window coverings, or those with inaccessible cords, that have been determined by third-party testing to meet the WCMA program criteria.

ODL is proud to be an industry leader in producing window coverings that reduce safety risk for children and pets.

What happens if I get condensation on my door glass after installing ODL Add-on Blinds for Doors?
Interior condensation is caused by excess humidity in your home. ODL Add-on Blinds for Doors do not cause condensation, but are a good indicator of humidity levels that are too high. The following is a quick guide to appropriate humidity levels:

Maximum recommended humidity levels
(based on inside home temperature of 70°F)
Outside temperature °F Inside humidity
20°F to 40°F Not over 40%
10°F to 20°F Not over 30%
0°F to 10°F Not over 25%
-20°F to 0°F Not over 20%
Below -20°F Not over 15%

If your door glass has interior condensation, you may remove the filler strips on each side of the frame to facilitate air circulation. Alternatively, you might choose to reduce the humidity level in your home (by, for example, reducing or eliminating humidifiers). Condensation does not indicate a defect in an Add-On Blind for Doors unit and will not damage it.

What sort of regular maintenance is required for Add-On Blinds for Doors?
Hardly any at all. ODL Add-on Blinds for Doors are captured behind glass to eliminate dusting, tangled cords and damage to blind slats.

Can the frames of Add-on Blinds for Doors be painted?
Yes, the frame can be easily painted with acrylic latex enamel paint.
