Plugs are typically pre-fitted to portable appliances and devices (e.g. lamps, kettles, toasters etc) whereas a blind, once installed, remains in situ and is not portable. For this reason, the power cable of the mains powered blind motor that we supply does not come fitted with a plug or fuses. When planning for the installation of mains powered blinds, it is normal to connect the blind cable directly to a switched fused spur. Installation of the fused spur and connection of the blind to the fused spur would normally be carried out by an electrician.
