Automation Systems

Automation

Climate Ready Fabrics motorised roller shade systems can be operated through a variety of different ways, from basic up-and-down functionality using a wall switch or hand held remote, or to more advanced functionality by integration with BMS and AV systems or intelligent automated control systems.

Basic Motorised Control

Basic motorised roller shades for simple up and down functionality.

Control Options:
Hard wired switch control
Wireless battery operated switch control
Wireless powered control
Hand held wireless remote control

Motorised with added integration with 3rd party AV or RCU

Automated Control System

Automated control offers hands-free automation of your roller shade system, controlling glare, shading and heat gain with an emphasis on the comfort and well-being of the user.

Our systems use Zone intelligence –  a highly intelligent automated shading control system by Climate Ready Engineering (CRE).

Features include BMS integration, plug and play installation, single or group control of blinds, an open Ethernet platform and scalability.

Suitable on large scale commercial projects for single or group control of roller shades.

Control Options
Automated control programmed to building/user requirements.

Override control
Wi-Fi operated tablet/device
Hard wired switch control
Wireless battery operated switch control
Hand held wireless remote control

Automated Projects

International House

Motorised roller shades using Sea-Tex fabric was used for the offices at International House Barangaroo.  These shades were automated with a variety of methods to suit the building’s requirements.

Meeting rooms – automated roller shade systems in meeting rooms are controlled and operated by integration with an AV system. Switch controls were also installed for control override and for simple up and down functionality.

Open space areas – automated systems configured with sun tracking for timed automation throughout the day, covering heat gain and glare. Override control by switch/handheld remote.

Baker Mackenzie Fitout

Situated in Tower One of Barangaroo’s International Towers, the Baker Mackenzie offices were supplied with additional roller shades operating independently from the fully automated shades that already formed part of the tower’s eastern and western façades.

Meeting and multi-function rooms – These particular areas were required to be operated independently from the automated shades in other areas.  Shade control is by switch.
