Types of Blinds Ideal for Motorisation

bathroom motorised blinds with remote controlThis month with Allegro Blinds we will be discussing the types of blinds ideal for motorisation, to ensure you only ever experience the best when purchasing technologically advanced blinds. With the combination of motorised techniques and stunning fabrics, it’s a matter of personal preference when deciding between Somfy, Louvolite or Luxaflex blinds. Choosing how to shade your home can be hard work because we all want something that’ll last and look great in years to come. Choose design and convenience, when you choose blinds that can be scheduled, altered with a remote or powered by smart home automation.

Blinds with motorisation


Don’t let motorised blinds choose a design for you, with Somfy you can decide for yourself. Somfy motorised mechanisms can be installed into all types of blinds including: Roller, Venetian, Pleated and Roman blinds. These blinds are ideal for motorisation because they all have up and down motion and angled if required, with the simple touch of a button.

Electric blinds can be powered by WiFi, battery or via the mains. The power is in your hands when you use an interior blinds hand control, used for Venetian blinds, you can tilt the slats with the wheel on the remote and guide them up or down to block out the light or let it all cascade in. The second option is the wireless wall mount, this controls one or more blind for fluid movement and instant light. Lastly, a centralised remote control can be used to direct up to six groups of blinds with a timer, with a digital screen you can input your requirements and the technology will remember it for you.  

One Touch (Louvolite)
