Aluminium Venetian blinds can be operated by battery, low voltage and mains voltage motors.

Battery motors are not designed (or powerful enough) to lift the blind - they simply tilt the slats and blind is raised and lowered by a standard pull-cord.

Somfy motors can be controlled by any of the extensive range of the Somfy RTS hand-held and wall-mounted transmitters.

The Coullise battery powered motor must be controlled by the Coullisse handset.

Low Voltage motors will require a Somfy transformer and have limitations operating larger venetian blinds. More Information is available in our price list.
