Installers hail the ‘W Smart’ way to provide motorised integral blinds

The biggest advantage of the ScreenLine® W Smart solar-powered motorised integral blind from Morley Glass is being able to complete the installation without the need for an electrician, according to feedback from Uni-Blinds® installers.

The W Smart can add a ‘wow factor’ to any home thanks to the way the smooth, quiet brushless motor raises and lowers the blind, and – in the case of Venetian blinds – tilts the slats. The motor is powered by a rechargeable battery that is charged, not by a mains power supply, but through a small solar panel mounted on the external window or door frame.

The Venetian or pleated blind can be encapsulated within a 20, 22, 27 or 29mm cavity double glazed unit making it suitable for virtually any type of window or door. Easy to operate, W Smart is supplied with a small remote control device, as well as a stylish battery module featuring touch keys to move the blind up and down. It can also be controlled using a smartphone app thanks to the development of a new plug-and-play smart hub called ScreenHub®.

What may be bad news for sparkies is great news for window fitters who are able to complete the job for the customer independently, without the hassle of having to coordinate their work on site with other tradespeople. No hard wiring is needed as is usually the case with motorised blinds of all types, not just integral blinds, and this is the main reason why W Smart installers say they like the product.

Venetian blind versions of W Smart are available in the latest contemporary colours launched by ScreenLine® and exclusively available from Morley Glass. These include black (B160), two cool new greys – agate grey (S120) and slate grey (B158) – and a new dual coloured slat that is anthracite grey on the outside and white inside.
