Motorised vs Manual Blinds
Manual vs Motorised Blinds.
When choosing blinds for your business, it’s important to understand the differences between standard “manual” blinds and motorised blinds. Each has its own benefits and use cases. Knowing the differences can help to ensure you install the best blinds for your business.
With manual blinds, there’s pretty much an endless selection to choose from. A few of the regular and most common types of manual blinds that we manufacture at Logo Printed Blinds include blackout blinds, coloured printed blinds and roller blinds. Manual blinds are self explanatory and controlled manually by pulling the chord to allow light in or block it out of the building.
The obvious positive about manual blinds is the fact that they’re available in a variety of styles that can be custom-made and made-to-measure to fit your exact specifications and preferences. The different styles are almost endless with different functions and patterns readily available to purchase. Furthermore, manual blinds can control light efficiently and are normally easily adjustable to suit your day-to-day preferences.
The only downside of manual blinds is the fact that you can’t control them when you’re not there. For example, if you forgot to close your business blinds after work and you’re at home, this leaves the business open to intrusion. This is where motorised blinds have the edge as they offer programmed opening and closing times that encourage automation to make your life easier.
Motorised blinds – also known as electric blinds – are becoming increasingly popular due to the ease of use and convenience they provide. Motorised blinds can also be custom-made and can be utilised with the touch of a button from a remote control. Motorised blinds are becoming more and more popular also due to the stylistic and elegant addition they bring to commercial spaces.
As well as the obvious benefits of motorised blinds mentioned, they’re also beneficial for getting to hard-to-reach areas without having to risk injury or waste time in the process. Furthermore, they’re also energy efficient and can be used to assist heating and cooling the temperature within your business. Lastly, motorised blinds are also fantastic for security and offer an added features that programs your blinds to open and close as of your requests.
The only drawback of motorised blinds is perhaps the cost and the fact they cost more than manual binds. However, it should be argued that the simplicity and privacy elements are more than worth the investment. Motorised blinds provide excellent value for money when you take into consideration this is a one-off payment.
