Electric Blinds And Motorisation - Solutions For The Whole Home

Electric Blinds
Electric blinds are revolutionising the way we look at light management. Epitomising comfort, control and style, these discrete motors are far from being a gimmick, this technology allows blinds to last longer, provide an ideal solution for those hard to reach places and are a perfect child safety product eliminating the requirement for operational cords.


At Order Blinds On-line we can offer a wide range of automation solutions tailored to your exact requirements on almost all of our blinds. The collections which include the option to add motorisation include roller, Roman, vertical, and Venetian blinds.



Electric Roller Blinds
We can offer electric roller blinds in a huge choice of fabrics. For inspiration please visit our roller blind page or the following brochure for ideas by clicking here. Electric blinds can be powered in a number of different ways. The simplest and most popular form for a domestic setting is our wire free battery powered motor. Put simply the motor sits within the roller tube with an external battery tube to power it. This is then attached to the wall with the clips provided hiding it from sight behind the roller.  The benefit of this is that there is no need for an electrician when installing the product and no wires to run.


The second method to power electric roller blinds is a hard wired motor, again this sits inside the roller tube but this time is powered by your choice of hard wiring the blind into the wiring loop or via a 3 pin plug. This system works particularly well if you are renovating or building a new house as the required electrics can be planned out in advance.


Electric Venetian Blinds
Our wooden Venetian blind systems are available with a few different levels of automation including a system which has been designed for windows where the blinds will generally be kept down so simply tilts the slats open or closed. We do however offer a fully automated electric Venetian blind system which is fully operational – raising, lowering and tilting. Again we have very similar methods to power the motors as mentioned for electric roller blinds.


Operating my electric blinds

We can offer a number of solutions to operate your electric blinds including radio controlled remote`s which are available with a number of different channels to operate 1 or more blinds at a time depending on how you want them to work. We can also supply rocker switches which can be mounted to the wall, light sensors to automatically trigger the blinds to open in the morning and close at night as well as timers for when you want the blinds to move at certain times of the day. This works brilliantly to simulate someone being at home even when you’re on holiday.

A Quality Product


After trying out several of the systems available as well as reading reviews, forums and talking with people within the industry we have chosen to only offer motors made by Somfy. We believe they are some of the most reliable, quietest systems available on the UK market as well as offering great value for money with the added peace of mind with a 12 month guarantee. We have found Somfy motors to be discrete, quiet, built to last and most important of all they are easy to use.
