Electric Blinds

Are you tired of manually having to draw your blinds when the sun comes out?

Benefits of Electric Blinds

Lower Heating Bills

As well as integrating electric blinds within smart systems, they can also be linked to both light and temperature systems. Resulting in decreased energy consumption and lower heating bills.

Increased Home Security

Security within the home is also something to consider. If you have automated motorised blinds, you can link them to a timer and control them from a smartphone when the property is not occupied. Giving the illusion that someone is in the house when they aren’t.

Increase Longevity

Electric blinds also reduce the difficulty in opening heavy weighted fabric blinds. Not only providing a safer solution, but increasing the longevity of the blinds themselves. With reduced manual handling, the blinds will look better for longer.

Are you tired of manually having to draw your blinds when the sun comes out?

Or spending hours untangling the cables/strings just so you can adjust the height of your blinds? Teamed with Somfy technology, our electric blinds provide the solution. Easily integrated with smart systems within your home, you can programme your lights to shine as your blinds are drawn. All conveniently at the touch of a button.

As well as traditional motorised roller blinds, the following blinds can also be motorised: venetian blinds, roman blinds, vertical blinds, horizontal blinds and pleated blinds. Somfy or Louvolite motors can be added to any of these. With this wireless technology you can operate multiple blinds at the same time, using radio signal transmissions.

Professionally Installed Electric Blinds

With our extensive range of electric blinds, you will find a blind that compliments your internal decor. Providing a luxury blind that offers convenience, at an affordable price. As radio technology is used to motorise electric blinds, no electrician is required at installation either, helping to keep costs down. If you find yourself in a position where you are moving home, no need to worry either – the motors from the motorised roller blinds can be taken with you.

Electric blinds are ideal for a range of different situations. Whether you have a tall window that is hard to reach, or you are looking for a safer alternative with children around. As the blind control is linked through a remote control or mobile app, this removes the need for hazardous leaning or stretching, with no chains or cords dangling from the window.

Case Study

Automated Blinds System

Customer currently had vertical blind and curtains and wanted to use a different method of achieving daytime privacy, heat reduction, and fade reduction and at a later stage refresh the window dressings.

Stage 1 was to install Solar Gard Sterling 40 internal window films to the front of the property to achieve daytime privacy a reduction in solar heat gain and furniture damage.

Stage 2 was to refresh window dressings in kitchen and lounge. After considering several blind types the customer like the Vision/Duo roller blinds we suggested battery electric using the latest Somfy lithium motors with soft start/stop operated by a 7 day timer.

Stage 3 was to refresh the bedroom window dressings. The master bed and spare room was treated to some vision blinds which completed the homes look from kerb side.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can an existing blind be motorised?

Some roller blinds could be motorised if they are a good quality system and have a roll/tube of a size which can fit a compatible motor. Some roman blinds with a new header rail could use existing fabric and curtains could be motorised with a replacement rail or pole. Other blind types are more difficult and not cost effective to adapt.
