Motorised blinds / Electric blinds for commercial and industrial use

As motorised blinds are becoming more affordable and commonplace in both the workplace and domestic environments, we can offer most varieties of blinds in automated options which can be controlled remotely.

Particularly useful for larger scale commercial environments, our robust range of blinds can be motorised to control your solar shading at the touch of a button. Our systems are suitable for a range of commercial environments such as offices, education, industrial, hospitality and leisure, healthcare, restaurants and bars, or local authorities.

Motorised control of your commercial or industrial blinds will allow quick control of the amount of sunlight entering your facility, creating either a comfortable working environment for staff or ambient relaxation environment for customers. For ease of use (as well as making a big impression) multiple electric blinds can be controlled from one switch, either independently or all together at once.
