The Benefits of Motorised Blinds


Motorised blinds are a modern, smart and innovative upgrade to any old regular blinds. In this day and age, we have access to all sorts – like automated heating, lighting etc, so why not add blinds to the list? Come on, it was only a matter of time!

There are several different forms of which motorised blinds come in, from simple roller blinds to full cinema blackout blinds. The whole purpose of motorisation is that it makes things easier and more convenient for you. We believe that they are a great advancement from normal, manual blinds, and so we offer some variants of them to our customers.

Here are a few of the benefits of motorised blinds!

They’re automated

One of the best things about motorised blinds, is that they can be controlled by you, but not only that, you have the ability to automate them. This means that if you were going out for example, you could adjust the settings so that your blinds will automatically open or close at the time you would like them to. This makes motorised blinds a much more advanced feature inside your property. Furthermore, they are adjustable depending on the amount of light you want in the room. This can be done by either the press of a button, or preset timings.

Improves safety

When you take everything into consideration, motorised blinds are actually a much safer option for your property. If you’re going out, you can automate the blinds so that they shut at the appropriate times. As a result this offers better security for your home because it means that if nobody is there, your blinds will automatically close themselves, giving your home protection. This could make a significant difference as it could ultimately prevent your home from a robbery, or at least anyone being able to see inside, especially at night. Also, to add to this, it would make it appear from the outside that there are people at home and that it is not an empty house.

Very convenient

There’s no denying the fact that motorised blinds are extremely convenient for any household. For a start, the automation feature means you have nothing to worry about. All motorised blinds tend to be remote controlled, so there’s no need to get out of your seat and shut them, just simply press a button and it’s all done for you.

Motorised blinds are neat, tidy and compact and give you all the privacy you need. They generally take away any hassle that may come from normal blinds, and are also very home friendly as there are no risks or dangers with them and they are compatible with both children and pets. Furthermore, being able to set automated times for them to open and close at a time that suits you is a fantastic bonus!

In early 2014 the standards regarding the manufacture, supply and professional installation of internal window blinds changed significantly. It is now illegal to supply or professionally install a window blind which does not comply with the child safety requirements of BS EN 13120:2009+A1:2014.

If your current blinds do not comply with the child safety standards, do not hesitate to contact us, via our contact us page, or call 01925 653971 for a quote!
