Luxaflex® Roller Blinds with Qmotion Technology
Luxaflex® Roller Blinds with Qmotion Technology were designed with a focus on reducing the total cost of motorisation for the homeowner.

Installing Luxaflex Window Fashions with Qmotion Technology is simple – no wires to run, no special tools required and no hard-to-find proprietary batteries.
* Based on 4 movements per day on a blind 1.8m x 2.4m
Luxaflex® Roller Blinds with Qmotion Technology reinvented how motorised roller blinds operate by housing precision ball bearings in each roller blind tube. This innovative design minimises friction, reducing the amount of power needed to raise and lower the shade and thereby making batteries last for up to five years* – an industry first. Qmotion Technology roller blinds operate with standard alkaline batteries that are discreetly housed inside the shade tube, yet are easy to replace when new batteries are required.
Unlike conventional motorised shades, Luxaflex Roller Blinds with Qmotion Technology are remarkably quiet. Their movement is smooth, virtually silent. In addition, Qmotion Technology roller blinds are completely cordless which makes them child and pet safe.
In another industry first, Luxaflex® Roller Blinds with Qmotion Technology feature a unique dual-operating function that allows the roller blind to operate with or without a wireless remote control. Without the remote control, the roller blind can be operated manually by pulling the bottom bar to the desired position or a short tug can send the blind all the way to the top.
Impressive Battery Performance
Luxaflex® Roller Blinds with Qmotion Technology are powered by standard D cell Alkaline batteries. Additional Qmotion Technology improves the sleep time of the inbuilt radio (RF) receiver, so that battery life lasts up to 5 years* of operation.
The batteries are stored inside the roller tube and are accessible by pulling down on the shade fabric to reveal the battery cut out when it comes time to replace them. Best of all, the blind does not need to be removed from the window to do this.
