5 Benefits Of Installing Motorised Blinds

Motorised blinds, also known as electric blinds, are window coverings that can be raised and lowered by a motor, eliminating the need for cords or strings. This makes them a popular choice for those with mobility issues, as well as for households with pets or small children. Our blinds are also available in a range of styles and fabrics, making them a versatile option for any home.

How do motorised blinds work?

Battery operated blinds operate using an electric motor to raise or lower the slats of the blind. The motor is usually hidden inside the headrail of the blind and connected to a cordless remote control unit. When you press a button on the remote, the motor raises or lowers the blind. You can then adjust the amount of light entering your room by raising or lowering the blinds.

Here are the Top 5 Benefits of Motorised Blinds

Comfort and Convenience

One of the main reasons people choose to install motorised blinds is because they offer greater convenience than traditional manual blinds. With auto blinds, you don’t have to lift your hands off the controls when you want to open or close the blinds. Instead, you simply press a button on the control panel. This means you can easily use both hands while operating the blinds.

Safety – Child Safe

Another reason why many homeowners choose motorised blinds over manual ones is safety. Manual blinds require you to hold onto the cord or string to keep them closed. Auto blinds can be opened and closed with the push of a remote button eliminating the need to manually pull the cord. The lack of strings or cords makes it a completely child-safe blind. There couldn’t be better blinds than electric blinds in terms of child safety.
