There is a wide range of motors available on the market today.
One of the most common problems we have is from customers who have previously had motorised blinds installed only for the client to advise they are a lot noisier compared to the ones in our showroom.
It is important to see and hear the motors operating prior to purchasing. This will ensure you purchase the correct motor for the product and how you wish to operate the product.
We offer a range of motors from Somfy and Louvolite
Somfy are regarded as the world leaders in motorisation for the blind and awning industry having a wide range of motors and methods of control.
For roller blinds we usually supply the sonesse motor. This is one of the quietest motors if not the quietest motor and has many options for controlling the blind.
For small size roller blinds that are not convenient to install a mains power supply we offer a battery wireless motor and for non accessible areas we offer the battery wireless motor with a small solar panel.
Louvolite are a major UK supplier of material and components to the industry and have recently introduced a range of motors designed to offer motorisation to a larger audience that is more cost effective.
Naturally with a more cost effective motor the size of blinds is generally reduced and therefore looking to the domestic installation although some of the motors are suitable for commercial applications.
The magic wand product is a fantastic breakthrough. A wand is attached to the motor giving ease of access to operate the controls. The power to this blind is from batteries neatly out of view of the product. The wand is only available for roller blinds.
Another alternative is a motor that can be recharged via a small charger supplied. Ideal for locations that can not have a power supply that may have a higher frequency of operation.
Mains powered motors are also available from Louvolite for the larger blinds.
