Rako, UK maker of high-performance digital dimming technology, has introduced a new partnership offering automated wireless blinds, powered by QMotion UK, specialist in premium quality automated window coverings. This partnership builds on the established synergies between these two complementary brands and will provide dealers with a seamless experience when specifying and installing lighting and wireless blind control on a project say the new partners.  

QMotion FM Roller and Roman blinds can already be natively integrated via the Rako RK-HUB or WK-HUB into Rako wired and wireless lighting control systems, without the need for special drivers or additional interfaces. Now, Rako customers will be able to access QMotion wireless shading solutions via Rako as well as training, sales, technical support and additional window treatment offerings.

Wireless shading systems from QMotion feature a patented, single tube design which offers an aesthetically refined, slim and unobtrusive blind solution designed for windows ranging from 400mm to 3800mm in width. This single tube design also houses the alkaline batteries which drive the motor to support the low energy QMotion counterbalancing mechanism operating the blind. As a result, battery lifetime typically extends for up to three years with the batteries fully recyclable, when depleted, and easily accessible for replacement through the tube compartment.    

“We’re all about making life easier and more efficient for our dealers and their end clients,” says Paul Wafer, Director at Rako Controls. “Lighting control and automated window treatments work seamlessly together to increase comfort, security and well-being for clients in many modern smart homes. Since Rako and QMotion UK shading systems integrate so effortlessly with each other, and because QMotion’s wireless blinds are clearly the best in the sector, it’s a natural step to offer a one-stop sales and support solution for wireless shading that will help our dealers. This will save them even more time and hassle when specifying and installing on site.”

“We’re delighted to support Rako’s dealers with high quality, automated wireless blind technology that’s backed by exemplary service, powered by QMotion UK,” adds Ian Claxton, Director at QMotion UK. “This move will deepen our alignment, provide strong benefits for Rako dealers and, ultimately, leave the client delighted with the best looking, most reliable and sustainable wireless blinds on the market.”

From the Rako website, dealers will be able to link through to QMotion’s Online Configurator to choose a ‘Rako’ wireless blind system.
