W Is For Smart

With a ScreenLine W Smart solar-powered motorised integral blind, an installation can be completed without the need for an electrician, according to feedback from Uni-Blinds installers.

According to the manufacturer, Morley Glass & Glazing, 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 battery that is charged, via 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. Easy to operate, W Smart is supplied with a remote-control device, as well as a stylish 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.


Quick fit

Ian Short, MD of Morley Glass says: “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 option

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 new greys – Agate and Slate) – and a new dual coloured slat that is Anthracite grey on the outside and white inside.

Like all Uni-Blinds integral blind systems, every W Smart unit is made to order by Morley Glass at its Leeds factory and delivered in just 10-12 days.
