Our Roman blinds are manufactured using a combination of the latest technology and traditional skills. All blinds are hand-finished to ensure there is no visible stitching on the face of the blind and have an integral fabric pelmet that covers the cord exit hole from the cord lock mechanism. We have a huge range of fabrics including a large natural collection to suit current market trends, but we can also produce blinds in your own material. All blinds come with an Ecru lining as standard, although coloured, blackout and flame-retardant linings are also available.

Pleated blinds are perfect for use in conservatories, sunrooms, high roofs and other hard to reach areas. Motorised pleated blinds are the ideal choice to ensure easy and smooth operation of your conservatory blinds without the need for poles or wands. They are either free hanging for vertical windows or fitted snugly into the window frame for skylight and roof windows. Many of the pleated fabrics come with a solar protective coating designed to keep out excessive heat in the summer, and keep in the warmth during the winter. You can open and close all or part of your blinds simply by using the remote control, from anywhere in your home.

Transition blinds offer a stunning alternative to conventional roller blinds, by combining all elements within the one product. The unique double layer of fabric allows the blind much greater versatility than that of a standard blind. In the open position, the fabric allows a view through the blinds much like that of a voile or net curtain, but when set in the closed position, the fabric provides the privacy of a roller blind.

It is powered by D cell batteries which with average usage of twice per day the system will provide 2-5 years life, by having the system motorised it eliminates the need for unsightly chains or the fears about child safety. it has a built in manual override by gently tugging it can be operated when no power is available.

Our blackout blinds are designed specifically to achieve light exclusion. From total blackout blinds to room darkening shades, we have the perfect solutions for home cinema rooms, bedrooms, photographic laboratories, conference facilities and audio visual training rooms. Our blackout blinds can be controlled manually or motorised. Again, these can operated manually or electrically, by switch, RF remote control or an AV system.

Features and Benefits

8-cityscapeOur roller blinds can also be digitally printed, so you can personalise them with photographs for use in the home, or for the office, they can be customised with your corporate logo, branding and imagery. All fabrics are flame retardant, contain UV inhibitors for longer lasting colour retention and are manufactured to withstand the rigorous demands of the office environment – or the playroom!


We offer a wide range of electric motorised options, delivering high performance with the minimum of sound and tailoring bespoke solutions to our clients’ requirements. Remote control systems are either hardwired or wireless and battery operated, if mains power is not available, and can operated by hand held remote or by third party system control, including integration with an AV system, or via smartphone, tablet and PC from anywhere in the world. These are a great way to automate an area without the additional cost and complication of an electrician running new cabling.

Qmotion

When it comes to building a world-class company for automated window treatments, you need an inventor, someone who tweaks and tinkers late into the night because he's fascinated by the elements that must be tamed and he's excited by the challenge of fine-tuning products into perfection.

In our case, that dedicated investigator of all things industrial is Willis Mullet, who founded QMotion Incorporated after spending many years improving garage doors and garage door openers. Willis is the former CEO of the Wayne Dalton Corp, one of the USA's leading manufacturers of garage doors and openers. While at Wayne Dalton, he helped steer major advancements in insulated garage doors including the first pinch resistant sectional joints as well as a revolutionary torsion spring counterbalance system that quickly became the envy of the industry.

Willis has injected QMotion Advanced Shading Systems with that same dynamic energy, crafting ways to make window treatments and electric shades move quietly, more efficiently, and have batteries that last years longer or equally innovative low voltage powered shades.

We at QMotion UK are proud to now make their products available on this side of the pond.

  • 100% Wireless

    Qmotion is battery powered and can be remote controlled, so there are no wires to install or complicated building works.

    100% WirelessQMotion UK are the industry leaders when it comes to a wireless shading system. With no power wires or control wires required at all, the user can install a fully motorised and intelligently controlled shading system without the need for using any electricians. For the first time there really is a system by which you can use motorised shades without the need for chasing out walls or installing unsightly surface mounted conduits to hide the wiring.

  • Remote Control

    The cool QMotion multi-function remote control allows you to control one or multiple blinds at once.

    Remote ControlQMotion UK Remote Controls are offered in standard white finish and are designed for easy set up and operation. We offer two types that can either operate a single shade or if more than one shade is installed a multi control remote can be used. Other remote control accessories that can be purchased are easy install flush mounted plates, which can be fixed to your walls and will hold the remote you have selected by magnet to the flush mounted plate.

  • iPhone / Android

    Got a smart phone, or tablet? You can control your blinds using the QMotion app.

    iPhone / AndroidQMotion UK can offer an app for both smart phone and or tablet which can be downloaded in either IOS or android formats. For the app to work and recognise the fact that QMotion UK shades have been installed, the user needs to install a Qsync into their Wi-Fi router. Once the QMotion app of choice is downloaded all the shades can then be addressed individually and if required grouped together, therefore providing an excellent and easy to use platform in which the shades can be operated.

  • Virtually Silent

    Unlike conventional motorised shades, QMotion technology allows for near-silent operation.

    Virtually SilentQMotion UK motors are almost silent, ensuring that when the shades are operated, that there will be virtually no motor noise that will interrupt or disturb the ambient noise in the room or area to which the shades or blinds are installed. This leaves the user with a pleasant experience when operating the shades and therefore no unnecessary attention is drawn to the window due to excessive motor noise.

  • Easy Setup

    No wires or switches to install means installation is as easy as fitting any other window blind.

    Easy SetupOnce your brackets are installed to your intended fixing points, and you have located the blind into the brackets. QMotion UK blinds are really are easy to set up. By following the instructions contained with every blind the 'SET' will take no longer than a few minutes, and you will have your shade working and fully operational. And yes we even install the batteries within the tube just to make the time from out of the box to operation just that little bit shorter.

  • 3 Year Batteries

    Based on four operations per day, the batteries last up to 3 years, and are a breeze to replace.

    3 Year BatteriesQMotion Shades come complete with pre installed readily available standard Alkaline D cell batteries. The battery life is dependant on the size of the shade and the amount of operations carried out on a daily basis. However based on a standard sized shade and alongside our fully vetted testing procedures we would suggest that it will work for up to 3 years with out the need for replacing batteries based on 4 fully up/down operations per day.
