Motorisation experts since 1989
Motorisation using a European designed tubular motor allows effortless operation of the Blockout shutter. Operation in its basic form is controlled by a three way switch mounted near or on a light switch plate near the Blockout shutter. Motorisation removes the need to physically pull or wind a manual control. Motorisation is maintenance free, unlike manual controls that may need tapes or gearboxes replaced over time due to wear and tear or misuse.
Motorisation with a remote control, takes it one step further. Available in multiple channels allowing individual and group control of every shutter in the room or the whole house. Motorisation with remote control allows those with disabilities and older adults with restricted mobility to operate their shutters without moving from their favourite chair. Remote timers, sun sensors are also available which can automatically close the shutters on the western facing side of your house blocking out the evening sun, saving you energy in cooling cost even when you are not home.
