Wood Venetian Blind Motorisation Info

Wood Venetians can either be motorised as a 22V Lift and Tilt motor or as a Battery powered Tilt only motor.

220V Lift and Tilt
  • To order a motorised blind you will need both a motor and an adaptor kit, please ensure you order both when ordering for a blind.
  • Specify the motor you require. Refer to the size guide for the correct motor for the size of blind. In the motor description e.g. Sonesse 40 RTS 3/30, 3 refers to 3nm describing the power of the motor. 30 refers to the revolutions per minute and will reflect the speed of the motor. It could be preferable to have all motors at the same speed in a room.
  • Please specify which side the motor should be on.
  • Please order seperatetely the remote control needed (various remotes are available that differ in operation and appearance.) A Modulis remote is preferred for a venetian blind as the scroll wheel allows for easy tilt of the product.
  • Only Basswood Classic blinds can be motorised for lift and tilt. (Not Traditional Regency Styles).
  • Each motor requires a 220 V power point. Each motor should be able to be individually isolated (turned on or off). If you are using a plug, do not place the plug in an area that will interfere with the installation of the headrail/brackets. The wire supplied with the motor is 2,5m long. Ensure the plug / power point is within reach of the motor. Do not make joins in the wire. As the motor/blind is a fixture, a join in the wire will make the household not electrically compliant.
  • 220V Lift and Tilt blinds are able to tilt the slats and lift the lower the blind. The blind will lift and lower in the closed position. Once the blind is stopped at the desired position or at its limit, the stats can be tilted and adjusted.
  • Blinds that would be too heavy to make as manual blinds can be motorised. This is one of the key benefits of motorising a wood venetian. Refer to the sizing guide.
  • The blind will have a defined top and bottom limit. A "MY" of favourite intermediate position can be set.
  • Remotes communicate with the motor using RTS technology. No line of sight is require to operate the blinds; the range of remotes is 80m in an open area and 20m through two concrete walls.
  • The motor will be enclosed in the headrail, a wire will protrude from the side of the blind where the motor is located.
  • Swivel brackets cannot be used on lift and tilt motorised wood venetians. Only box brackets can be used.
  • Dual lock will be used to attach the valance to the headrail as valance clips will not fit onto the motorised headrail.
  • Lift and Tilt motors cannot be retro fitted to existing wood venetians. A new headrail and ladder strings are required.
Battery Powered Tilt Only (Wire Free)
  • To order a motorised blind you will need both a motor and an adaptor kit, please ensure you order both when ordering for a blind.
  • Please specify which side you would like the motor, the other side of the blind will have a lift cord.
  • Please order separately the remote control needed (various remotes are available that differ in operation and appearance.) A Modulis remote is perferres for a venetian blind as the scroll wheel allows for easy tilt of the product.
  • Please price separately the 8 lithium ion batteries required for each motor. It is a seperate item on the price list.
  • Basswood Classic and Traditional blinds can be motorised for tilt only
  • Power is supplied by 8 x lithium ion batteries enclosed in a battery tube mounted on the back of the headrail. It is essential when replacing batteries that only lithium ion batteries be used.
  • Tilt Only motors will only tilt the blind. Lifting the blind will be done by a lift cord and secured using a cordlock.
  • The blind will have a defined top and bottom tilt limit. When the top limit (closed limit) is set the motor should not lift the blind up before the limit is set. If the motor is lifting the blind, battery life will be dramatically reduced. A "MY" or favourite intermediate position can be set.
  • Please refer to the table for the expected battery life for the relevant blind size.
  • Tilt Only motors can be retro fitted to an existing wood venetian. The tilter would have to be removed and the tilt rod needs to be shaped to fit the motor.
  • A solar energy kit is available for Wire Free motors. The kit consists of a solar panel and a specific batter designed for the solar system. The solar panel can be placed using adhesive strips on the window and the battery will be provide 5 years of life. After 5 years the battery may need to be replaced. It is recommended that the battery be charged using a solar kit charger before installation of the blind.
