    Whether it be luxury homes, quality hotels or dynamic conference venues, motorised curtains are becoming a standard requisite in this type of high-end project. Our exquisitely designed remote control tracks are extremely robust, yet discrete and can even be concealed within a ceiling recess.  Nothing creates greater visual impact than beautifully crafted curtains moving virtually silently, across a span of up to 10 metres, at the touch of a single button! The sophistication of Controliss electric curtain tracks is reflected in the simple form and sleek lines of the powerful motor and rail.  The motor is covered neatly, housing an integrated power supply; having the capability to offer a large range of control options, with adjustable limits to allow the curtains to fall naturally. Just like our electric blinds ranges, the curtain tracks are operable either individually or as groups of tracks, just by varying the choice of remote control handset. Installation is a simple operation with a basic electrical connection; ensuring the experience of an electric curtain track and all the associated benefits, could not be easier. These electric curtain tracks are so versatile, they incorporate Touch Motion functionality, to open and close the curtain by lightly pulling on the fabric, without the use of a remote control.  The motor drive shaft disengages automatically to permit use of the Touch Motion function.  The curtain tracks can also be personalised; to stop at preferred levels of opening, even the speed of operation is adjustable, with all tracks having soft start and stop as a standard feature. We can not only guarantee our tacks with a warranty for 5 years, but more importantly, we guarantee that any visitors will not fail to be impressed by the power of motion; so for any projects scheduled for 2013, where that ever important 'wow' factor is vital, then the simple solution is a Controliss electric curtain track!

  • Introducing Somfy Sensitive Controls

    Posted on 20th March 2012 by Jules.

    As an Interior Designer, I am rarely attracted to gadgetry as aesthetics are generally compromised by technical hardware. However, I have recently discovered the exception to the rule! Having deliberated over the choice of fabric or finish for your Controliss remote control blinds it is essential to incorporate a simple yet stylish means of blind operation. Controliss Blinds have launched  the new Somfy 'Smoove' touch sensitive wireless wall control.  If that sounds technical already, let me explain exactly why this little gem appeals to me. Firstly, there are no unsightly wires or cables to try and conceal and no disruption to decor. Quite simply screw the mounting plate to the wall and click the module and decorative face plate in to place, even I could do it! With the installation easily resolved, we can explore the plethora of finish combinations available to co-ordinate with your decorative interior scheme.

    The central control module (or brains as far as we, the non technical are concerned) is available in white, silver, black or red.  This decided, there is a choice of 8 different frame options, from a stylish matt silver to a sophisticated walnut gloss surround.  Why not choose several options and change them periodically to give a whole new look? Having satisfied my design criteria, lets address the functionality.  The device is discretely proportioned at just 80mm x 80mm x 10mm, smaller than a standard light switch and beautifully finished. The central control module (brains) consists of a touch sensitive panel, up, down and a MY (personal setting) clearly visible. The module emits an audible beep signal whenever a movement or operation is selected, together with an Integrated LED acting as feedback to confirm detection of a touch command. Smoove Touch Sensitive Wall Control is an innovative wireless RTS switch to control 1 blind, or a group of blinds simultaneously, with a range of up to 20 metres through 2 concrete walls, so no line of sight is required to command your window blinds. The module is also available with open/close icons in place of the up/down arrows for use in conjunction with our electric curtain tracks. Smoove has a pure, simple, timeless appearance that fits into any interior scheme. If you think this desirable, innovative product sounds expensive, you would be wrong!  Available from the Controliss online Somfy shop from just £38.24 for the module and £8.96 for the frame, the designer look of Smoove touch sensitive wireless wall controls are accessible to all!
