Venetian Blinds

Many years ago, this was the most popular blind available, with large 50mm slats; then came along the smaller 25mm & 16mm slats, which allowed Venetian blinds to evolve.

Not simply a Venetian blind, they can be made into various forms using different headboxes such as the Intu Venetian blind is uniquely child-friendly as it does not have any operating cords; push and pull down with a simple top rail slider to tilt the slats and make it much more appealing there is no need for screws as the Intu Venetian blind uses special clips to fix blind within the window frame.

A simple battery-operated tilt-only motor is available, or a more sophisticated raise / lower and tilt motor, but this would have to be mains-powered and can be linked to home automation.

The motorisation of Venetian blinds has not been forgotten. Using the larger headrail, 57mm x 51mm, we have two options available, both from Somfy. Battery Tilt only using Somfy’ tilt 50 Central RTS 12volt with external battery pack. This allows you to operate the tilt open and close, but you keep the raise and lower cords.

Using the same motor as used in roller blinds with some added components within the headrail, the Sonesse 40 RTS 230volt or Sonesse WT 230 volt which is both ma\ins power, so you will need a power source nearby, preferably up high near the headrail of the blinds.
