Electric Blinds

Blind Technique gives you the option of remote control electric or battery powered blinds for your window blinds and conservatory blinds. Each blind, whether pleated, roller, roman or vertical has it's own Somfy motor which is discreetly housed in the headrail. This electric 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, or large room, 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. Electric blinds are particularly useful for roof blinds and blinds that are difficult to reach and/or operate.

Which Electric Blinds are available?

The majority of internal window blinds can be motorised these days as the technology improves and the motors become quieter and more efficient.

  • Pleated Blinds
  • Roller Blinds
  • Vertical Blinds
  • Venetian Blinds
  • Roman Blinds
  • Plantation Shutters
  • Awnings

At Blind Technique we like to offer different solutions for our customers and have recently developped a new system for electric 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 a few years ago and has proved to be a trouble free success. 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 factory showroom.

Sonesse™ Electric 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 are 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™ Battery Powered Electric Blinds

Now you no longer need a mains electrical supply to each electric blind. WireFree™ is a battery powered motor meaning it is quick and easy to install without any 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 or office. Having a simple remote control, similar to a tv or stereo, means there are no wires between the motor and the remote control, and you are able to easily operate your blinds from wherever you choose. Depending on the handset, you are either able to operate one single blind, a group of blinds together, or several blinds individually.
