YOU HAVE HIGH STANDARDS. SO DO WE.

When you choose Graber window treatments to complete the décor of your home, you should expect a superior experience, beginning at the moment of installation and lasting throughout the life of our products.

OUR HISTORY

The company got its start in 1939 when John N. Graber installed a set of Venetian blinds in his home in Middleton, Wisconsin. Standing back to assess his handiwork, Graber realized that his drapes looked unbalanced hanging over the new blinds. To improve upon the existing design, he invented a special metal bracket that he christened the Badger Crane, after the animal that symbolizes his home state.

Through his innovation and artistry, Graber had elevated the standards for consumers, and also for the industry. His ingenious invention, realized with quality materials and craftsmanship, would eventually be marketed throughout the Midwest, then all over the world.

Cordless control options have been certified as Best for Kids by an independent lab.

CORD SAFETY GUIDELINES

The Window Covering Safety Council urges parents and caregivers to check all windows for potential cord hazards and make the necessary safety updates:

Install only cordless window coverings in bedrooms and sleeping areas for young children.

Replace window blinds, corded shades, and draperies manufactured before 2001 with products that meet updated safety standards.

If replacement is not possible, repair window blinds, corded shades, and draperies manufactured before 2001 with retrofit cord kits, available by emailing windowcoverings.org or calling 1-800-506-4636.

Move all cribs, beds, furniture, and toys away from windows and cords. Keep all window pull cords and inner lift cords out of children’s reach. Make sure that tasseled pull cords are short and continuous-loop cords are permanently anchored to the floor or wall. Cord stops must be properly installed and adjusted to limit the movement of inner lift cords.

Lock cords into position whenever horizontal blinds or shades are lowered, including when they come to rest on a window sill.

GREEN BY NATURE™

Graber products are also an important component of green living.

  • Conserving Energy. Our window coverings regulate the sun’s rays to control temperature and create healthier, more energy-efficient homes for our consumers. Cellular shades in particular provide an extra layer of insulation, keeping heat and cold from penetrating windows, conserving energy year-round.
  • Protecting Resources. Natural shades are crafted from renewable materials like bamboo, jute, and grasses.
  • Preserving Clean Air. Our blinds and shades use GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certified materials, with low chemical and particle emissions.

Graber uses sustainable practices to manufacture our products responsibly, so that we can all enjoy a “greener” future. Conscious of the company’s environmental impact, we:

  • Recycle all metals, plastics, fabrics, paper, and waste wood in our plants, diverting these materials from landfills.
  • Conserve water by using a closed-loop water cooling system for plastics manufacturing.
  • Design minimal product packaging that uses at least 44% of post-consumer recycled material.
  • Source and process renewable hardwoods for Graber Blinds domestically, minimizing transportation and thus, saving energy.
