External & Solar Motorisation
Create shade easily with the press of a button
Many external blinds have Motorisation options available. Choose between 240v Hard-Wired motors and Solar Powered motors, depending on your situation.
- Solar Motors: CW Products’ “SolarSmart®” brand solar motor
- Hard-Wired Motors: Nice® brand, Somfy® brand and Rollease Acmeda®
Rollease Acmeda motors have universal remotes that can also control internal battery motors.
SolarSmart Solar motors do not require any existing solar panels or works to your home; the system is independent, and maintains its charge over a long period. Even with frequent uses a day, the battery will remain functional. The panel can be installed on the wall or on top of the roof, for maximum sunlight absorption potential.
All motorisation options allow the control of blinds either independently or simultaneously; blinds can be stopped at any point along their normal track of movement, and some brands allow a ‘favourite’ setting.
Blinds For You can arrange electrical works, or if you have a preferred electrician, please consult us and we can work with your electrician to ensure power points are installed for optimal blind compatibility.
