How much do electric blinds cost?

All of our electric blinds are custom made to measure so we quote for each job individually to suit your requirements. Please contact us to arrange an appointment and take a look at our Pricing page for some guideline costs.

How are electric blinds powered?

We offer a choice of two power options – mains wired or battery. Wired electric blinds can be connected to your mains electricity supply either via a spare wall plug socket or a specially fitted fused spur. Our battery operated blinds are completely wire free.

Where are your blinds manufactured?

Most of our blinds are manufactured right here in the UK which ensures we can offer the very best lead times.

How long will the batteries last on my electric blind?

Our battery operated electric blinds use standard alkaline D cell batteries which can last up to five years based on an average use of four movements per day.

I don’t have a power source near to my windows, can I still have electric blinds?

Yes. We can either work with an electrician to have the wiring installed and a fused spur fitted or you can choose to have wireless battery operated blinds.

What blind fabrics do you offer?

We have a vast array of blind fabric colours and textures to choose from including blackout, noise reducing, solar reducing and semi transparent screens. Take a look at our Blind Fabric page for more details.

Are electric blinds energy efficient?

Yes. Electric blinds help to keep the heat in and the cold out. Plus, with automated options you can set your blinds to open and close depending on the time of day. All of our blinds are very quiet and efficient so use minimal energy to run.

How long will it take to have my electric blinds installed?

From initial design consultation to final installation, we can have your blinds fitted in as little as three weeks. More bespoke installations may require components from several suppliers and so can take a little longer.

How are electric blinds installed?

All of our electric roller blinds are custom made to measure to ensure the perfect fit for your home.  Our expert fitters will visit your home to take precise measurements for manufacture before fitting your new electric blinds with the utmost skill and care. We look after your home throughout the fitting process and we can also work alongside builders, interior designers and architects if you are planning a new home, extension or renovation.

Can I measure and fit the electric blinds myself?

No. Unfortunately we can not offer a DIY service. Electric blinds are expensive to replace if not measured accurately or fitted incorrectly, so we recommend that you use an experienced fitter to install your electric blinds.

How are electric blinds mounted?

All of our electric blinds can be finished with simple brackets without any dangling wires or cords. If you prefer we can also provide a neat fascia or cassette which hides the brackets and roller barrell. Alternatively we can fit electric blinds into ceiling recesses or pockets, working with your architect and builders to ensure a perfect fit. Take a look at our Blind Mounts page for more detailed information.

Can your electric blinds be fitted into a ceiling recess?

Yes. Once you place an order, we can work with builders and contractors to ensure your blinds sit neatly within a specially made recess or pocket.

How are electric blinds controlled?

You can choose to control your blind via a simple wall switch, traditional remote control, a smart home automation system or through an app on your smartphone. Take a look at our Blind Controls page for more information.

Can I control my new blinds through my phone?

Yes. Our best selling electric blinds can be operated through an app on your smartphone or tablet.

Are your electric blinds compatible with my Smart Home Automation System?

Our electric blinds can be integrated into most leading home automation systems on the market today including Control 4, Crestron, Savant, Elan, RTI, Vantage and URC. If you have a smart home system that isn’t listed here, please contact us as we can connect our blinds to most systems.

What are your payment terms?

We ask for a 50% deposit when you place an order with the balance due just before completion of the installation.

How long are your electric blinds guaranteed for?

All of our electric blinds come with a 1 year warranty.
