Hardwired electric blinds run off your mains power supply and are a wonderful addition to any home. Open and close your blinds at the push of a button and watch as they simultaneously rise and fall. With no unsightly cords, electric blinds are simple, elegant and provide a stunning backdrop for any room.
Hardwired electric blinds are operated using your mains electricity supply. If you have a power socket located near to the windows where you would like to hang the blinds, we can simply plug them in and run the wires neatly into the blind bracket or fascia. Alternatively, if you don’t have a power source to hand, we can work with electricians to have a fused spur fitted close to the blinds. The blinds are operated using a remote control, wall switch or even a smartphone, and work off a small motorised unit which creates a smooth rise and fall movement.
Mains powered electric blinds are a fantastic choice for many window dressing projects. However, there are a few occasions when hardwired blinds are not suitable and battery powered electric blinds would be better…
Hardwired electric blinds need to be connected to your mains power supply using wires. If left untouched, these wires can look very untidy, so they will need to be carefully hidden using colour coordinated trunking.
Higher Installation Costs
Hardwired electric blinds often take more time to install due to the extra work involved in fitting a suitable power supply, wiring the blinds in and concealing the wiring. As such, the costs are usually higher than battery blinds. However, you may save money in the long run as there is no need to replace the batteries.
Installation Takes Longer
Hardwired electric blinds require a 5amp fused spur to be located nearby, so, unless you already have a socket in the correct position, one will need to be fitted by a qualified electrician before the blinds can be hung and wired in.
