What are Perfect Fit Blinds?

Perfect Fit blinds are the revolutionary window blind for uPVC and aluminium windows, doors and conservatories. Manufactured by Louvolite, Perfect Fit blinds are so neat they become part of your window frames. Launched in 2005 they have now become Louvolite’s top seller. The blinds require no drilling as they clip directly onto the window. Once the clips are in place a frame is added which holds the blinds. The frames come in a range of colours including white, brown, anthracite grey, golden oak and mahogany to match your window frames & sills which gives the effect that it is part of the window. Fitting takes around 30 seconds and requires no expertise to fit. This makes perfect fit blinds great for people who don’t have a D.I.Y. enthusiast around the house, and also for those who do not wish to pay for a full survey and installation service from a local or national blind company. You can buy perfect fit blinds online from Newblinds.co.uk for easy self-installation!

VIDEO: Roller Fly Screens for Windows - How to Operate

Our roller fly screens for windows are an excellent way of letting fresh air circulate into your home, but keeping out flying pests and creepy crawlies. They are an excellent purchase for this spring and summer, and if used correctly will last for many summers to come! We have produced the video at the bottom of this page as a "how to" guide for operation. As you can see, they are extremely straight forward to use! Each screen consists of a spring loaded cassette, which houses the mesh and is attached to a sliding hem bar with a handle. Also included are two side channels, one for either side of the screen. This is a "hide-away" screen and only needs to be deployed when your window is open. When your window is not open, the mesh simply rolls back into the spring loaded cassette at the top of your window, keeping the mesh safe and clean. Side channels on each side of the screen create an insect proof seal either side. The sliding bar of the screen will typically pull down to your window sill, which creates the fourth side of the frame. If you don't have a window sill (for example, if you are installing around an opening pane at the top of your window), then you can opt to purchase an L-shaped closing profile, which can be fixed at the bottom of the screen underneath the side channels, to complete the fourth side of the frame.

STRONG Electric Roller Blinds - Installing a SOMFY Sonesse 40 Motor

If you have a STRONG Roller Blind and need to install a fresh SOMFY Sonesse 40 WT (Relay) or RTS (Radio) operated motor, this post will talk you through the parts involved and the process. You may need to carry out this process for the following reasons: You are upgrading from chain to motorised operation. You are switching from one motor type to another. You have received a replacement motor due to fault or damage. You may also wish to use these instructions as a guide to ensure that your existing SOMFY Sonesse 40 motor is correctly installed in the tube. We sometimes find that motors, or the motor collar or drive-wheel can become disengaged from the neck of the motor during installation or in transit. If the motor is not inserted correctly, this can lead to "wobble", vibration, or noise during operation. This video will explain the correct fitment, which should eliminate these issues.

Disney, Star Wars & Marvel Roller Blinds

If you are looking for roller blinds featuring prints by Disney, Star Wars and Marvel, unfortunately, they have now been discontinued. Our fabric supplier, Louvolte, offered these prints under license for several years, allowing us to incorporate stunning designs featuring Mickey Mouse, Dumbo, Spiderman, Marvel Avengers, Toy Story and Storm Troopers across our range of blackout roller blinds, Perfect Fit Blinds and electric blinds. The were a firm favourite amongst our customers (and certain members of our customer services team!) We appreciate that this is disappointing for fans of Disney, Star Wars and Marvel. Will this be the last time that we see these fantastic characters adorn custom made window shading? Who knows! We certainly hope not! For those of you looking for prints suitable for nurseries, kids bedrooms and educational environments, watch this space. We have recently reviewed the new Louvolite fabric collection for 2022, and are pleased to report that they have some fabulous designs which we'll be rolling out into our roller blinds categories in time for their launch in January. Of course, all kids blinds will be made-to-measure, of the highest quality and available to buy online, delivered directly to your door. You'll be able to order free fabric samples, ahead of making your purchase.

How do I set the limits on a relay operated electric blind

If you are planning on purchasing or have already purchased electric blinds with relay operated motors, then you'll need to understand how to set the upper and lower limits. The upper and lower limits are hard stops that prevent the blind from over-running in either direction and possibly causing damage to the blind itself. In this article, we will be considering how to set the limits on automated roller blinds using this type of motor. Connect the motor cable to the switch Our NEWBLINDS Relay Operated Motors have a 4-core cable. You will need a blind control that is capable of switching a 4-core cable. The colour-coding of the individual cores are as follows: Blue = Neutral Brown = Direction 1 Black = Direction 2 Yellow / Green = Earth Somfy Sonesse 40 WT motors do not have an earth cable, so only have 3-cores, but the colouring is otherwise the same.

Why choose relay operated electric blinds?

Relay motors or Radio motors? In terms of blind control, there are two key types of blind motor, that make up the majority of the units sold in the UK and further afield: Radio operation (wireless): These can be battery operated, such as  the Sonesse 30 ULTRA RTS Li-ion used in our battery operated roller blinds. They can also be 230vAC llike the Sonesse 40 RTS used in our 230vAC radio operated roller blinds. 12vDC radio operation motors are also available. 230vAC relay operation (wired): for example the Somfy Sonesse 40 WT or NEWBLINDS Quiet Relay Operated motor, used in our 230vAC relay operated blinds The question is, when buying automated blinds, when should you consider using wired control by relay? When not to use relay operated blinds Firstly, let's rule out scenarios where relay operated blinds are not suitable: Wireless control by handsets or wall switches If you wish to control wirelessly, by handset or by wireless wall switch, then relay operated motors aren't for you. You can't control a relay operated blind wirelessly.
