Decora has formed a partnership with Somfy to make motorisation easy for you and your customers.
Motorised blinds may seem like an extravagant luxury, but they can in fact provide a wealth of practical benefits and long-term money saving solutions.
With the busy lifestyles we lead today, they offer much needed convenience – allowing you to manage your light control at the touch of a button. Roller blind motorisation has been made easy by Decora, which has formed a partnership with Somfy, the world-renowned leader in motors and automated control systems for the home and workplace.
From a very simple plug-and-play battery-operated motor suitable for smaller blinds (up to 5m2) to more powerful, yet surprisingly quiet, motors powered by DC or AC for larger, heavier blinds, Decora has a solution to meet all requirements.
Motorisation offers many advantages in both the home and the workplace. Ideal for hard-to-reach places, it can also offer an improved quality of life for the elderly or disabled who require help with tasks around the home. The absence of cords and chains ensure your blinds are completely child-safe, offering peace of mind for busy parents.
Motorised blinds can be controlled in a number of ways – either via handsets or wall switches, giving the user the option of operating one blind at a time, or to control a group of blinds simultaneously. This feature is a great advantage in the work environment, as all blinds in a building could be operated by one person with one touch. With rollers becoming more prevalent for contract work, motorisation is the perfect solution for larger, heavier blinds, allowing them to be raised and lowered with minimal effort. This also results in less wear and tear, giving your blinds a longer life expectancy. Blinds may be set to open and close automatically on a timer, or dependent on temperature or light conditions, for example to close when very sunny to protect furnishings. This automated feature also offers security benefits as blinds can be raised and lowered when the building is unoccupied.
