Stay Cool

If you have south-facing rooms with large windows or an expansive roof lantern, you’ll likely find that they get too hot in the summer. If so, electric blinds could be of great benefit to you. With pre-set programmes and automatic functions, you can set the blinds to open or close at set times of the day to block out the intense midday sun. Choose a light coloured fabric to reflect the sunlight away from the windows and use a fully opaque material for the best cooling properties. 

Sleep Better

It’s well known that a dark bedroom is conducive to a good night’s sleep. But with the days getting longer, an early sunrise or late sunset can wreak havoc with your sleeping patterns. Blackout electric blinds are a great solution to this problem. A fully opaque fabric will block out all of the light, and the custom made blind will provide excellent coverage across the whole of your window. Furthermore, you can pre-programme the blinds to rise at whatever time in the morning you desire, allowing you to gradually wake up to the beautiful warmth of natural sunlight every morning.

Protect Furniture

Not only can the summer sunshine make your house feel too hot, but harmful UV rays can also damage furnishings in south-facing rooms. Electric blinds come in an extensive range of fabrics with various degrees of opaqueness that will help prevent your furniture from fading. Furthermore, our semi-transparent screen fabrics provide just enough protection from the sun without blocking all of the light or the view. And the automated functionality of electric blinds gives you the control to open or close the blinds at pre-set times of the day, even when you’re not at home. 

Reduce Glare

Electric blinds are a great way of reducing glare from the sun when you’re watching TV, working on a computer screen or just browsing social media on a mobile phone or tablet. At the touch of a button via a remote control or app, or even with simple voice commands, you can quickly and easily close your electric blinds to create some much-needed shade. Plus, if you don’t want to block out all of the light, our semi-transparent screen fabrics reduce the glare without completely blocking the view or cutting the light off.
