COVID-19 Update - 23rd May 2020

Dear Customers and Friends, I hope you are all keeping well and staying safe. I'd just like to update you all on how things have been going at Newblinds.co.uk, and what our customers can expect now that the lock-down is starting to be eased. Whilst we were told to "Stay Home"... During the global COVID-19 outbreak and subsequent lock down, we have continued to operate and fullfill orders as best we can. Although we closed our factory and offices, we've been running with a skelton staffing working from home, answering calls and emails from spare rooms and kitchen tables; sampling, fabricating and dispatching from home workshops and garages.  We've continued to manufacture and dispatch fly screens, although lead times have been longer than promised and expected due to reduced staffing and delays with materials incoming from suppliers in the EU. If you have experienced a delay with your product, we can only apologise. As advertised, the majority of our made-to-measure blind production had ceased due to factory and supplier closures. Since we've been told to "Stay Alert"... Thankfully, production has resumed on the majority of our products. We do have a significant backlog of orders, but we are working hard to clear these as soon as possible and get back on track and to reasonable lead times. We expect manually operated blinds and fly screens to be the first products to have the backlog cleared, followed by automated blinds.

COVID-19 Update

Dear Customers, We are experiencing some delays with manufacture and dispatch of window blinds due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Window Blinds Some of our regular material suppliers and suppliers of finished blinds closed their warehouses and workshops on the announcement of the initial 3 week period of lock down restrictions. Other suppliers are operating using much reduced staffing.  Update - On the 16th April, the UK goverment extended lock down restrictions by a further 3 weeks. It is likely that this will cause continued delays on these products.  If you require blinds urgently, then please contact customer.services@newblinds.co.uk to check the status of the product that you wish to order.  Fly screens The majority of our fly screen products are still being fullfilled according to the lead times displayed on the product pages. Order confirmation emails When you place an order, you will receive an order confirmation email which may detail a delivery date - please disregard this date. Your order will be manufactured at the earliest possible opportunity. We genuinely appreciate your patience and understanding during these extraordinary circumstances. We hope you are staying safe and healthy during these challenging times! Best wishes, Newblinds.co.uk Team

Can I Use Multiple Louvolite One Touch Home Hub Units to Control Blinds in Large Properties?

We discovered a neat feature of the Louvolite One Touch Home Hub system today. If you want to control electric blinds by App, Alexa, Control4 or Google Home in larger property, this is a great tip for you. First of all, let's re-cap, for those of you who aren't familiar with One Touch blinds or Louvolite's One Touch Home Hub. We offer battery operated roller blinds using Louvolite One Toucn Motors in our electric roller blinds section. These can be controlled by handset, or using a separate device called One Touch Home Hub - this nifty unit connects to your router and allows you to control the blinds from a clever mobile app. Not only this, but the hub can also be connected up with Alexa allowing voice control. Google Home and (for real smart home buffs) Control4 can also be connected. We received an enquiry from a customer who had already purchased a One Touch Home hub from our website along with multiple blinds. The hub was located at one end a larger property and the blinds were spread throughout the property in different rooms.

Sonesse 30 RTS Li-ion - Programming Instructions

The Somfy Sonesse 30 RTS Li-ion rechargeable battery operated motor has a slightly different programming routine to motors with separate batteries and 230v motors. The key differences are as below: You can buy roller blinds using the Sonesse 30 RTS Li-ion motor, by clicking here. WAKE UP MOTOR: To "wake up" the motor, there is a small button on the head of the motor. Press this button briefly until the motor jogs once SLEEP MODE: It's really important that if you have multiple Somfy RTS (Radio) blinds, you only programme or re-programme one blind at a time. All other blinds should be powered down. This is simple with 230vAC Somfy Motors or battery operated motors with separate batteries, because you can either switch off the motor at the mains, or unplug the separate battery tube. With the Sonesse 30 RTS Li-ion motor (and other motors with Integrated Li-ion motors), you power down the motor as follows: Press and Hold EITHER the handset programme button (on the rear), or the motor programme button until the blind jogs once. Then... press and Hold UP, MY and DOWN buttons together until the blind jogs once. CLOSE PROGRAMMING: To close off programming mode, you press the programme button on the back of the remote briefly and the blind will jog. With other RTS motors, you need to press and hold the programme button until it jogs. The full step by step instructions for the Sonesse 30 RTS Li-ion motor are below:
