Frequently Asked Questions
How long is the offer on for?
Until the end of April 2019 or while stocks last. This is a genuine offer. We are a local family business. We do not double prices and offer 50% off. Its been a little quiet with the elections and world events and we did a deal with Somfy to pass onto our customers
What sort of motor are they?
Somfy Altus28. It has only been launched in February, 2019. It is one of the newest motors from Somfy. We have been selling the chargeable battery Sonesse 30 for over a year with great success. Somfy Sonesse is know for its extra quiet operation. Somfy Altus28 is the next model down. Still aligned with the premium Somfy brand. Still a 5 year extended SOMFY warranty. Just a little more affordable. Somfy is a European company based in France. They are considered the market leader in blind automation in the Australian blind industry.
How does the FREE deal work?
The offer is for the free battery powered SOMFY ALTUS28 battery powered motor. NOT A FREE BLIND. If you spend over $1000 within the Promotion time frame you can get one of the new roller blinds motorised for FREE. That include a SOMFY ALTUS 28 Motor, recharger, recharger cable and remote.
It is only for newly purchased roller blinds. You can spend over $1000 on other products and if one of them is a roller blind we will motorise that one for free.
For example: Say you purchased Some Plantation Shutters and 2 roller blinds. The invoice came to $2500. you could get the 2 roller blinds MOTORISED FOR FREE.
Can I get other blinds motorised?
We can motorised Folding Arm Awnings, Pivot Arm Awnings, Ziptrak, and many other blinds HOWEVER, this offer is only for ROLLER BLINDS and only for the styles we manufacturer in our factory. If you are unsure, please ask. Some roller blind products like Ziptrak Internal blinds and Roller blinds with channels and pelmets are not made in our factory. We can only do this offer on blinds we make in our factory.
Why don't I need an electrician?
Somfy Altus28 motors have a rechargeable lithium battery inside of them. They come with a recharger, similar to a phone charger. There is a pin hole at the very end of the roller blind tube. You put the recharger cord in their and plug them into the nearest power point. They will come charged when we install them. You will need to charge them every 3-6 months. Depending how much you use them. When the Premier Shades installer, installs your new Roller Blinds he will also programme the remote so you can operate the blinds from the remote control. We have done hundreds and hundreds of this style of motor with very few issues.
Can I buy extra Motors if I don't spend enough?
Yes. You will get 1 free SOMFY ALTUS28 motor for your ROLLER BLIND for every $1000 you spend with Premier Shades. If you want other NEW ROLLER BLINDS MOTORISED you pay just $199. The normal retail price is $250 per motor.
For example. Say you buy 2 roller blinds and they are $1000. You can get one motorised for free, and the other you can pay an extra $199. (Motor only) to get the second one motorised.
How many remotes do I get?
We will give you the most suitable remote depending on how many blinds you get motorised. Remotes are available in 1 channel, 2 channel, 5 channel and 15 channel.
For example, if you have 3 blinds in the living room and you want them to all go up and down at the same time, its best you get just 1 remote. We will discuss the best option at time of quoting.
I just bought some blinds - can I get the free motors put in?
I'm sorry, but its just not feasible. It is only cost effective to offer this deal on new blinds made in our factory. Do you need some more?
