We use Somfy motors for these electric blinds as Somfy are the world leaders in motorisation and control systems for automated products. This Somfy system consists of a motor unit and radio receiver, which are concealed within the tube of the roller blind, and a battery tube which can fit neatly behind the blind out of sight.
The motor is powered by 8 x AA Alkaline batteries which sit in a battery tube outside of the roll. Our blackout fabrics are multilayered and do not allow light to penetrate the fabric. The fabrics have a self coloured blackout backing and due to the nature of this backing gives the blinds some thermal properties keeping your room cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
A blackout fabric paired with a Somfy powered electric roller blind gives you maximum control of light in your home all at the touch of a button!

Measuring for blinds is simple if you know how to measure your window properly. Ensuring that you have measured your window correctly is a top priority and the first step to ordering a new blind for your home. Firstly, you need to decide where you want to fit the blind, either inside the window recess or outside the window recess. Once you have decided how you are going to fit your blind, use the easy to follow steps below to measure your window. We make a small deduction from the width of an inside recess blind to allow for easy fitting. Measure inside of wall to inside of wall in several places in case the wall is not straight: enter smallest measurement on the measure sheet in the width box.
Measure top of reveal to window sill as above and enter this measurement into the drop box on the measure sheet. Tick inside recess in the Measurement section. Measure the area you would like your blind to cover: normally we recommend that this starts 7.5cms (3") above the window recess and 7.5cms (3") below it, then 10cms (4) to each side of the recess. Give us this width measurement as your exact blind size.
This is just a guide and you may wish to change this. For roller blinds remember that the actual fabric width of your blind will always be 3.5cms (1.5) less than the exact blind size measurement you provide to us, to allow for the brackets, so you may wish to increase the overall measurement to allow for this adjustment. Ensure there is a 6mm clearance all around the outside of the window beading to allow enough room for the Perfect Fit framework. Also check that the seals are compressible (not solid) and check that the handles won't get in the way.
2 Measure the glass size. Measure the actual glass size of your mirror taking several width and drop measurements and using the smallest (in case the window is not completely square). Measure from rubber seal to rubber seal.
3 Measure the window depth. Use a ruler or a straight edge and a tape measure to help you here. Place the straight edge across the actual frame and then measure from the window glass up to the straight edge.
This will give you the measurement from the face of the window (the flat glass) to the face of the frame. Normally this will be 18mm, 20mm, 24mm or 30mm and will determine the size of the brackets we will supply to enable your Perfect Fit frame to fix neatly. The blinds are easy to install and come with full fitting instructions to help you do this quickly and with ease and you can also find videos on You Tube if you search Perfect Fit Metal Venetians Blinds.
