Our partner SHY can design and manufacture roller blinds to fit any shape of window. Specialising in creating and manufacturing bespoke roller blinds, together we can provide roller blinds to accommodate the most unusual of applications.
SHY has many years of experience in designing triangular blinds and non-symmetrical blinds, as well as window shading solutions for gable ends.
Either an open roller (Obscura), or a roller encased in a headbox (Sunfacta) are available depending on space available and the desired aesthetics.
The Shaped lifting systems are mains powered. These can be radio operated with either a hand held remote or wireless wall switch, or hardwired and controlled by your AV system.
The tube and/or headbox size depends on the dimensions of the blind, with larger blinds requiring larger tubes and/or headbox.
Systems are specified as either CTS (Constant Tension Spring) or FTS (Fabric Tensioning System) depending on the size of blind. We will specify the best product for the window and if there are options wil discuss these with you.
Tension cords will be evenly spaced to give equal tension throughout the blind and will always be visible. There is no way to avoid these visible cords on these shaped systems. Horizontal ribs will be used to stiffen the fabric and give locating points for the tension cords. These too will be visible on the room side of the cloth.
A range of fabric options are available. Blackout fabric can be chosen to significantly reduce the amount of light passing through the window and glass fibre and polyester screen fabrics protect against heat and glare of the sun.
Hardware can be powder coated to any RAL colour (standard colours are white and black) to suit existing surrounds.
Please do contact us as early as soon as you can, if possible whilst still in the design stage of your project. We are then able to discuss concealment options, such as wall channels, blind boxes or pelmets/facias to help conceal the spring boxes and roller tubes/headboxes.
How to Shop
These shaped blinds do require a trained installer, however for an initial consultation, please email us details of your requirement with images and rough dimensions. For customers in the South / South East we can provide a quote for an initial survey and for installation. For any customers wanting their builders to survey and fit the product or if you have your own fitters to survey and install the product, please email us details of your requirement with images and dimensions to firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 01590 615775.
Please note:a sample swatch of fabric is recommended before any order is placed as the colours shown on screen are not accurate enough for colour approval.
Revolutionising Home Comfort Control
Radio Technology Somfy® (RTS) is Somfy’s exclusive control platform which enables users to adjust motorised interior window coverings and motorised exterior products such as awnings, rolling shutters, pergolas and screens from virtually anywhere.
RTS is omnidirectional and travels through walls making controlling motorized products easy. You don’t necessarily have to be in the same room as your motorised product(s), or aim at them in order to operate.
No extra wires are needed.
Features Somfy’s exclusive “my” function, which allows you to program a preferred product position.
You can mix and match controls as you wish. Use a fixed wall switch or a remote or use both.
Provides the ability to change user preferences anytime with simplified programming.
RTS allows you to build your home automation system gradually. For example, you can start with a motorised curtain, then add blinds and other accessories later.
What’s more, RTS adapts easily to changes in your interior layout, as you can add control points or move them at will.
The Smoove 1 RTS
makes a stylish statement, while offering all the benefits of a single channel remote. This battery-operated solution is easy to install and doesn’t require an electrician.
New timeless look, with interchangeable frames to match any room.
Surface-mount avoids cutting into drywall.
Quick and simple installation
Includes open, close and stop functions, and programmable ‘my’ button
being stationary on a wall provides an ideal way to operate motorised products when entering or exiting a room.
This multi channel wall switch can control multiple RTS products individually and as a group. In addition to the 4 individual channels, you can create temporary groups by selecting a combination of the 4 channels. The relevant led’s are pressed to select a temporary group, then the direction or stop button is pressed to operate the blinds. The command signals are sent consecutively to each channel, with the corresponding channel led blinking during operation.
The three control buttons provide raise, lower and stop control functionality. A favourite position can also be programmed and recalled at the touch of a button (‘my’ button).

SITUO 5 RTS MULTI-CHANNEL HAND-HELD REMOTES
Five channel remotes offer more functionality because they offer an additional 5 channels of control. Each channel can still operate one individual product, such as a single motorised curtain, or one group of motorised products, such as all the motorised blinds on the first floor. With a total of five channels, you can set the preferences that suit your life.
Use channel one for your motorised curtain.
Use channel two for the motorised roman blind in your living room.

How does it work?
A simple press of a button on a remote control or wireless wall switch sends out a radio wave signal to move any motorised interior or exterior window coverings with ease. There is no need to point or aim the transmitter because RTS is omnidirectional and operates within a range of up to 65 feet. And just like a garage door opener, the radio waves travel through walls, making control of motorised products easier than ever.
What are channels and groups?
Did you know?
Window coverings powered by Somfy can be integrated with total home control systems. Somfy motors are compatible with third-party home automation systems, allowing the user to access and control their motorized window treatments from their home automation remote, touch-screen, wall panel or smartphone, which also controls lighting, security, HVAC and audio-video equipment.
