They make it easy to raise or lower several blinds at once, they're perfect for hard to reach windows and with no cords hanging down, they are safer with toddlers around.

The key to accurate measuring

All our blinds are made to measure so it's important that the dimensions you give us are accurate. We can show you how to measure up accurately to ensure your blinds fit easily into place.

Easy installation

Our motorised blinds are battery operated so there's no wiring in to do. In fact, they are as easy to install as normal roller blinds, so you can fit them yourself. And because they are remote controlled, they are perfect for installing in hard to reach places.

Wire-free battery operation

The motor in our automatic blinds is inside the cylinder of the blind itself. The motor is programmed to lower the blind to the exact depth of your window and as there are no wires, you won't need to redecorate after installation.

Operating your blind

Your motorised blind can be controlled remotely by a handset or wall mounted switch, either way, there's no wiring needed. Depending on which remote control you buy, you can raise or lower one or more blinds at the same time and all the settings are fully adjustable.
