Electric blinds with obstacle detection 

Built in obstacle detection technology for ZIP System motorised blinds

SHY® (UK) introduce its suite of motors with built in obstacle detection technology for their ZIP® System motorised blinds.

  • tubular motors have an extensive and proven pedigree detect an obstruction
  • automatically stopping to prevent damage to the blind or the obstruction
  • safe, reliable and trouble-free operation 

Motors accurately detect real obstacles

To prevent the motor stopping inadvertently it makes three attempts to pass the obstruction with a clever mix of mechanical and electrical technology ensuring that the motors accurately detect real obstacles.

The motors are designed for internal and also external blinds, where the odd gust of wind will not engage the obstacle detection when not required and there are other clever features which make them ideal for ZIP® blinds of almost any size. 

Soft stop is a standard feature

Limit setting is very simple as there is no need to access the motor at any time.

The blind is just fully raised and lowered and the motor senses the top and bottom of the blind travel and memorises these two positions.

Using these new motors SHY® (UK) can make ZIP SCREEN® blinds up to 6m wide x 10m drop.
