Motorisation

Motorised Conservatory Blinds and Window Blinds

Blind Technique gives you the option of remote control motorisation for your conservatory blinds and window blinds. Each blind has it’s own Somfy motor which is discreetly housed in the headrail. This blind can be individually controlled and operated via a wall mounted switch or a remote control handset, or even programmed to operate at certain times or according to information from a sun and heat sensor. Where there are multiple blinds, such as in a conservatory, the blinds can either be operated individually, all together, or separated into different groups, known as zoning. Controlling your blinds on a timer or via a sensor will maximise your privacy, give a perceived security, and protect your furniture and plants from sun damage. Motorisation is particularly useful for roof blinds and blinds that are difficult to reach and/or operate.

Which blinds can I motorise

The majority of internal window blinds can be motorised these days, using a Somfy Motor that is adapted and concealed discretely in the headrail.

  • Pleated Blinds
  • Roller Blinds
  • Vertical Blinds
  • Venetian Blinds
  • Roman Blinds

Blind Technique have just developped in house a new system to motorise Roman Blinds which will make the operation much easier and trouble free, and at the same time reduce the cost. The first of this type has just been installed at the launch customer's home in Autumn 2012. We have a display blind set up on our testing rig at the factory which you are welcome to come and look at when you visit our new factory showroom

Sonesse™ motors for internal blinds

These motors, designed for internal window blinds, are quieter than operating the blind manually and you will hardly hear them moving. The blinds can be operated using RTS technology, basically radio waves, via a wall mounted switch or battery operated remote control. The blind will be programmed to stop in the fully open and fully closed position, and can be stopped at any position using the 'My" button. Additionally this button can be programmed to position the blind to your favorite position.

New wirefree™ motorisation

Now you no longer need a mains electrical supply to each motorised blind. WireFree™ is a battery operated motor meaning it is quick to install with no damage to your décor or requirement for an electrician. This latest innovation gives you a motor with very low power consumption, only using what is required, and only being used when the blind is operated to maximise battery life. You also have the option of using rechargeable batteries and can choose a reloadable battery wand so that you can replace or recharge the batteries yourself when required.

Remote control handsets

The remote control is radio wave operated and so can be controlled from practically anywhere in your home. Having a remote control, similar to that of your television, means there are no wires between the motor and the controller, and you are able to operate your blinds from the comfort of your armchair. Depending on the handset, you are either able to operate one single blind, a group of blinds together, or several blinds individually.

If you are interested in motorisation, we will be happy to discuss with you the options available to suit your requirements. Please contact us for more information.
