All Oceanair blinds adhere to current child safety regulations, but cording and manual controls are not necessary on powered blinds, making them the safest blinds to use in spaces with children.

Measuring for your powered blinds

Use the same techinques for measuring as you would for a manual blind, and leave the rest to us! We account for headbox size, motors and accessories in our design process, ensuring you get the perfect fit every time. If you are ever unsure, or for large projects or complex blinds, Oceanair would always recommend using our specialist team of highly qualified surveyors. 

 

Measuring for your blinds couldn't be simpler, following our simple guides on our customer order forms. Customer Order Forms are available on the 'technical documents' tab on every product page.

TOP TIPS ON MEASURING FOR YOUR BLIND

  • Define where your blind will be positioned, and mark any corners with a pencil on masking tape, before commencing measurements.
  • If you are measuring a rectangle, ensure the window is not tapered, by taking 2 or 3 measurements along the x and y dimensions.
  • Always measure to the nearest mm - Do not round up to nearest cm.
  • Be clear on whether your measurements are for your blind or recess.
  • Define if your blind will be top or face fixed.
  • Note which side of the headrail you would like your wire exit point to be located.

Installing Oceanair Powered Blinds

Oceanair would always recommend using a qualified installer to fit non-retrofit items such as powered blinds; we provide our own, highly qualified installation team for this purpose. Our installers are highly experience with working with integrators and installing powered blinds, taking the worry out of the process.

Installation instructions for each product are available on the 'technical documents' tab on every product page.

Oceanair WireFree™ powered elements are simple to fit with NO electrical integration required. For more information on WireFree™, please visit our web page, or contact us. If you are not comfortable with fitting the product yourself, we do have qualified installers on hand to help. Oceanair would always advise the use of a professional if in any doubt.

POWER

  • Always ensure that the correct power supply is available and check before this is connected.
  • This can either be 12 or 24v DC, 110 or 230v AC.
  • For Sonesse 30 ensure the +24vdc connection is connected to the +24vDC supply.
  • The DC12 or 24v DC supply must be a stabilised supply, so that it remains constant.
  • For mains supply motors (110 & 230v AC), these must be connected to the supply by a qualified electrician.

Radio Controlled Blinds

  • When in user mode only press one of the three control buttons on the Transmitter at a time. If you press UP & DOWN at the same time the blind can go into programming mode (dependant on motor type)
  • Only programme one blind at a time and ensure only this one blind has power.
  • If the blind does not respond to an instruction from the transmitter, check power is going to the blind, and that the red light on the transmitter lights. Hold the transmitter close to the blind in caser the batteries are nearly run down in the transmitter.
  • If a receiver is moved from one blind to another then if a run time for a Skysol blind has been set on it, it will need to be re-set for the new blind.
  • When pairing a receiver to a transmitter only hold the prog button down on the receiver long enough for just one jog. If you repeat the pairing process, then the receiver and transmitter will become un-paired.
  • The top and bottom stops on blinds with the LW25 (24vDC) type motor cannot be changed by re-programming. These are controlled with the adjustment of the AMS stop. The only exception are Skysol blinds which are NOT AO type.
  • The top and bottom stop of Sonesse 30 & 40 RTS can be adjusted when in programme mode with the transmitter.

Wire Controlled Blinds

  • Do not connect more than ONE mains powered motor (typically Sonesse 40) to a switch.
  • For Skysol blinds with a TS-24 do not connect the three control wires together as this will put the blind into programming mode.
  • Sonesse 30 DCT – Switch connections must have no voltage (dry contact). The switch operation should be two single pole, normally open, non-interlocked, normally open switches, e.g. Vimar 20066.

Installation top tips

  • Note the full Job ID found on the packaging label for future correspondence.
  • Always check you have the correct blind before opening, measurements can be found on the label. 
  • If you have more than one blind, you will have given us a blind location and window ID number. Please check that these match your records to ensure you install the correct blind into the correct aperture. 
  • Ensure that the thickness of the boat structure at the proposed mounting position is deep enough to prevent the fixing screws from breaking through. If necessary, use shorter fixing screws than those supplied.
  • Use masking tape on the drill bit as a depth guide to avoid drilling too deep.
