The 4955 battery-operated electric roller blind system consists of a cassette header, containing the batteries, motor and fabric roll, and a weighted bottom bar at the bottom of the fabric.
4955 System Colours
The header cassette comes in white and the bottom bar comes in either white or silver, or can be covered in the same fabric as your blind.
The 4955 system takes 8 standard AA lithium batteries, which are supplied. When you come to change them, please replace with lithium batteries, not alkaline.
Battery life can be up to 3 years, depending on how much you operate the blind, and the blind's size, as larger blinds take more energy to move.
The batteries fit into a battery pack that can be easily removed from the blind. The battery pack fits behind a cover in the header cassette of the blind and cannot be seen when fitted.
You can choose any width from 60cm up to 240cm and any drop height from 60cm up to 400cm.
The fabric on your blind will be 1.7cm (17mm) narrower than the width of entire system on each side, so if the blind is going in a recess, check this gives you enough coverage. It is normally fine as most window frames are wider than this.
Fixing and fitting
4955's can be fixed up to the ceiling, for example in side a window recess, or to a wall. We will send the correct brackets to match your selection on the blind designer.
The brackets are easy to fix by a competent DIYer and the blind simply clips to them.
You will just need rawl plugs and screws suitable for your fixing surface.
