Installers hail the ‘W Smart’ way

The biggest advantage of the ScreenLine W Smart solar-powered motorised integral blind from Morley Glass is being able to complete the installation without the need for an electrician, according to feedback from Uni-Blinds installers.

Morley Glass adds that the W Smart can add a ‘wow factor’ to any home thanks to the way the smooth, quiet brushless motor raises and lowers the blind, and – in the case of Venetian blinds – tilts the slats. The motor is powered by a rechargeable battery that is charged, not by a mains power supply, but through a small solar panel mounted on the external window or door frame.

The Venetian or pleated blind can be encapsulated within a 20, 22, 27 or 29mm cavity double glazed unit making it suitable for virtually any type of window or door. Designed to be easy to operate, W Smart is supplied with a small remote control device, as well as a battery module featuring touch keys to move the blind up and down.

It can also be controlled using a smartphone app thanks to the development of a new plug-and-play smart hub called ScreenHub.

Ian Short, MD of Morley Glass said: “W Smart was designed initially as an eco-friendly system which would provide end-users and homeowners with a motorised integral blind without burdening them with additional electricity consumption. And whilst that continues to be a massively appealing benefit of this system, installers and their customers also tell us that they love the fact it can be fitted quickly, so the installation can be done and dusted in a matter of hours.”

Venetian blind versions of W Smart are available in the latest contemporary colours launched by ScreenLine and exclusively available from Morley Glass. These include black (B160), two cool greys – agate grey (S120) and slate grey (B158) – and a new dual coloured slat that is anthracite grey on the outside and white inside.
