Shading Control Maintenance

In summary

Motorised Blinds can be operated in a number of ways, from simple wall switches or radio remote controls to fully automated systems interfaced with other controls. By interfacing blinds with other building controls such as lighting, heating, and air conditioning, shading systems can become dynamic. Dynamic shading can have a big impact on building sustainability and carbon footprint, through optimising solar energy.

Why maintain shading controls

Shading control systems need regular maintenance and updates to check for issues on the system and make sure they are running the latest and most secure software versions. 

As the landscape or cityscape around your building changes your pre-existing settings may need adjusting.

Labetts can help you optimise your Shading System Controls
