Motorisation – making life easier.

Motorised blinds are now becoming more affordable and commonplace in both the home and the workplace.

Depending on the particular type of blinds and the area they are to be used, they can be

  • 240v mains powered
  • 24v powered via transformers
  • 12v battery powered

and can be controlled by a wall switch, hand held remote control, voice controlled or integrated into your smart home system.

The benefits of motorised blinds are

  • Convenience – Blinds can be timed to open and close when required
  • Ease of use – Touch of a button, voice controlled or automatic
  • Safety – Motorised blinds are child safe by design
  • Increased security – Blinds can be opened and closed even when you’re not home
  • Compliment the aesthetics of your home – Motorised blinds remove the need for hanging operating chains and cords
