Ordering Electrically Powered Blinds
Electric Blinds and remote control blackout shades can easily be fitted for just about any application, the average electric blind purchase would go something like this.
1. Give our company call and let us know what type of blinds you require, for example “electric dim-out blinds”, then provide us with the measurements and let us know what you need the blinds for, this could be privacy, temperature control or simply protection from the sunlight.
2. If giving us the correct measurements for your electric blinds turns out to be a problem, do not worry.
3. We would arrange for one of our technical fitters to visit your premises and carry our an accurate survey.
4. Once the survey is compete you will then be given a quote for the cost of your motorized blind package.
If once you have our quote we will then advise you to visit one of our competitors to obtain an additional price. Now if the price of our competitors is lower this may be for a number of reasons, some sales teams sell the wrong type of blind knowing it is not sufficient for the job. For example blinds for heat and blinds for privacy can be made of totally different materials.
Do not go away thinking you have got a cheaper price when in fact they have sold you the “wrong” blinds which are cheaper… remember the electric blinds sales teams are only after a fast profit.. if when you have a second quote you then tell us what what the other company has offered you… we “WILL” confirm this if it is the case… our policy is to be “non” pressure and “give” advice… this is how we have stayed at the top of our business.

In fact just about any application you care to name.
Electronically Powered Conservatory Blinds
Just the same as a conservatory connects your home to your garden, conservatory blinds connect it to the outer environment. You could hardly find another type of construction where windows fittings matter so much. Without them, you would be left with a simple observation room, while finding the right blinds really puts a conservatory in a good light.
We can help you choose and install any type of blind, custom made or standard measure. It is probably much less fuss than you imagine. With a recent mounting system such as Perfect Fit, installation on one window can be finished in a matter of minutes. And the cost is not very high either, unless you go for high-end options, which, in turn, always add value to your home. You may contact us at any time, but if you are new to either conservatories or blinds, reading the information below may help narrow down your options.
If you just started thinking about building a conservatory, you should continue reading. If you already are the happy (we hope) owner of such a building, you may jump the next section and go directly to the benefits of the blinds.
Besides its picturesque, country style, a conservatory has the merit of being a relatively cheap home extension, which still grants most of the functions of a regular room. It is not necessarily restricted to a place where you can enjoy the sun, have a tea and chit-chat, although it fills this function very well.
Traditionally, conservatories used to be independent buildings in the garden, similar to kiosks. Their function as a past-time place was quite clear, in that context. On the contrary, modern conservatories are developed as extensions. This only emphasizes the idea in the previous paragraph: while such a construction is great for having a tea, it can fill many other roles, depending on the owner’s needs and ambitions. Blinds will prove helpful in this respect, since they add personality and privacy which turn a simple sun-room into a real part of the house.
Turning to the past once more, conservatories used to be ornate buildings, as charming from the outside as from the interior. Modern conservatories are usually made of PVC, a type of rigid plastic which is widely used in modern constructions and plumbing. This is a solid, low maintenance material, cheaper than wood, but which cannot reproduce the classical Victorian carvings and joints. However, the standard structure shapes remain and, although you will meet less diversity in conservatories design than in the past, there are differences in aesthetics and prices, which you should take into account.
Victorian conservatories are probably the most popular. They have a distinctive rounded end, which can be build with three or five facets. A variation on this model, the Edwardian conservatories (also known as Georgian conservatories) present a flat end instead of the rounded one. For the same dimensions, they will offer significantly more space than the Victorian design.
The lean-to conservatories are developed along a wall of the main building. They are lower in height, which makes them suitable as extensions to shorter buildings. Lean-to conservatories are also known as Mediterranean conservatories.
You should consider two hybrid types too, the P-shape conservatories and the T-shape conservatories. They have more complex shapes and provide additional space.
Last but not least, it is also possible to build a conservatory leaning on two walls of the main building at the same time, filling a corner. This way, you will be making efficient use of space and spending less, since only the other two walls and the roof remain to be built.
The Benefits of the Blinds
First and foremost, there are two basic types of blinds: for the roof and for the windows. It is surprising that many houses in the UK feature conservatories which were only fitted with windows blinds, leaving the roof open. Indeed, the whole idea of such a construction is letting the sunlight in. But during summer days, the heat can become unbearable, if not at least uncomfortable, not to mention the sun glare, making its way right into your eyes.
A roof blind will solve both of these issues. Various materials are available, from transparent to blackout. You can choose a certain degree of transparency or, for bigger conservatories or narrower roof windows, you can count on opening some blinds and leaving the others closed. Either approach will enable you to control lighting.
Concerning heat, any type of screening material will help, when replacing direct sunlight on glass. Think of the wooden shutters of the old homes. But science has gone a long way, and thermal regulating fabrics or laminates can be employed now, some of them initially designed for astronauts. They keep warm in the winter and cool in the summer. So here you go – a simple window blind can act as an efficient heat control and light control device.
Furthermore, a conservatory can expose you in a very unpleasant fashion, when people are taking peaks from the outside. They are also easy to access structures, attractive to burglars. Obviously, blinds do not replace anti-burglary systems, but they do offer privacy and let you decide what should be visible and what not. Roof blinds may seem less important in this respect, but, above all, if you live in a town or city, they will prevent the neighbours upstairs from looking down on you.
We have mentioned roof blinds more than window blinds simply because they tend to be underrated. Both of them are as important. And they both contribute a lot to the overall feeling of a conservatory. This is why suppliers provide a wide range of materials, colours, patterns, sizes, and operating systems.
