The timer control also features a holiday mode where it will open and close the blinds at random times of the day to help simulate occupancy. Perfect for those who are away regularly.

When opting for this power source, please consider the motor side as the cable plugs into the end of the motor so you will therefore want to position the motor at the side which is nearest to your power outlet.

Night & Day Electric Blinds

Day and night blinds are a fantastic solution when looking to create the look of a venetian blind whilst keeping the control of a roller blind. Additionally when rolled up the window is virtually completely clear making them ideal for patio doors where a wood venetian would cause too much of an obstruction.

What to expect from this blind:

  • We use a 7cm tall cassette to house the blind which ensures that the roller tube and mechanism are completely hidden from view (unless you look directly up from underneath it).
  • The cassette will be fitted with a piece of coordinating fabric.
  • We use a white exposed external weight bar on this blind which looks great with its high gloss finish.
  • In the down position the blind will be set to be closed
  • In a recess we will set the blind to finish between 0.5-1cm from the window sill.
  • We attach the fabric to the back of the cassette and then roll the material off the back of the roller. This ensures the two pieces of fabric travel tight together and close to the window for the best level of light control possible.
  • The fabric will be 3.5cm smaller than the finished blind size to accommodate the blind mechanism.
  • Supplied with an integrated Somfy 28RTS motor which is fitted inside the roller tube and rotates at 28 revolutions per minute for quick operation.
  • Controlled using your choice of remote control or timer for ease of use.
  • Powered using your choice of battery pack or 3 pin plug

In the box:

  • Made to measure electric roller blind.
  • Your selected of power supply.
  • Your selected remote control/s.
  • Brackets suitable for top or face fixing.
  • Instructions for fitting and fine tuning the programming of your blind start to finish.

We only use Somfy motors for all of our blinds, they are the market leaders in window blind motorisation and so were our natural first choice so we give peace of mind that your investment will last. Every motor we use operates on RTS technology which means you can use the same handsets and timers to control a variety of products within your home including roller blinds, wood venetian blinds and roman blinds.
