Motorised blinds and curtains are a logical solution for any home. Not only is the convenience an obvious benefit, but for older people or heavy or hard-to-reach blinds and curtains in particular, motorisation makes a simple daily task so much easier.
Motorised blinds do more than just move up or down at the touch of a button. Sensors that detect sunshine or temperature control the movement of your curtains or blinds. At nightfall, blinds and curtains automatically close to keep out the cold night air. During the summer months, automatic closure protects from the sun’s heat. Regulating the indoor temperature with your window coverings increases comfort and reduces running costs of heating and air conditioning.
Motorisation removes the need for strings and cords, providing a neat and tidy solution that makes your window furnishings look their best. The absence of strings and cords is also child-friendly, especially for windows closer to the ground.
Automating closure of curtains and blinds during direct sunlight is a valuable strategy for protecting furniture and furnishings from fading and damage from the sun’s harsh rays. Motorised curtains and blinds can also automatically open at sunrise and close at nightfall, providing presence simulation and peace of mind during extended time away from the home.
Motorised curtains and blinds are equally viable for older homes as they are for new homes. The control unit operated the electric motor mounted in a metal casing at the top of the blind. Once the blind has been fitted, the motor can’t be seen from the outside, making for a near and tidy finish. The electric motor can be powered by the mains or by a long-life battery. For a long life-span, a high quality motor is imperative for minimum maintenance. Arrow are proud to offer some of the higest quality motorised components on the market.
