Smarter controls for climate and light management

By taking advantage of automation, your Automate® roller shades can operate based on changes in the weather and natural light to help provide a comfortable interior and ultimately improve the energy efficiency of your home.

Make your Automate shades work for you by creating scenes in the Automate app that adjust through the seasons; maximising or minimising the amount of natural light filtered into your home.

Automate Zero Li-ion Series

Ultra-quiet, rechargeable, battery-powered. The Wire-Free motor is perfect for small to medium shade applications.

This series of rechargeable, lithium-ion battery motors are completely wire-free, and invisible to the untrained eye. The Zero Li-ion Series can be retrofit onto existing smaller rollers from 580mm widths up to medium sized 3 metre wide applications, and even longer when used in conjunction with a linking solution. The Automate® Zero Li-ion Series is directly compatible with roller shading systems but can also be adapted for roman shades.

Elegance on a grand scale

A great deal can be achieved when motorising curtains in lofty, open plan living areas with Automate® motors. Automate technology allows for motorised curtains of up to 11 meters wide, curtains that can wrap around corners and slow down upon closure, to perfect an elegant aesthetic for your interior space.

Also, if you are closer to your curtain than your remote control or smart phone, the Automate® C motor offers the added benefit of manual activation. This function allows you to gently pull on the drapes and the motor will complete the action – automatically moving the drapes to open or close.

What customers have to say!

I just want to write and say how impressed I have been with the service I’ve experienced. Firstly, from Ryan. He was friendly and very knowledgeable. One window was a bit tricky and the solution he suggested has worked brilliantly. He arrived when he said he would and then sent the quote through quickly.

Then today from your installer. He called to tell me he’d been held up with roadworks. He arrived masked as is required, was polite and friendly and worked hard. He did a great job and tidied everything as he went. I thought he was outstanding.

I hope you give them both a pat on the back and let them know you’ve had glowing feedback from a very happy customer.

I own a real estate office and will certainly be referring people to you when I get the opportunity.

I know how it is to receive positive comments.

Thank you and regards

I highly recommend Tobens
Fantastic staff and service, even during covid times they produced faultless curtains in a prompt time frame. David who came and did the measure was friendly, professional, and had some excellent ideas. The installation was also a hassle-free experience and we are very happy with the finished product. Their pricing was competitive and they had a vast material range to view. We will definitely be using them again in the future!

Great service and perfectionists in everything they do. Extremely happy with our shutters, blinds and curtains. They even made a beautiful cover for us.

Got questions? Well, we’ve got answers.

How long does it take to custom make curtains?

Depending on fabric availability, normally 4 weeks.

Do I have to pay for the whole job up-front ?

Of course not! We normally need a half deposit before we start the job, final payment is to be made before installation.

How do I choose a curtain fabric ?

One of our consultants will be happy to come to your home and help you put something together. Or come into our showroom and have a look at our 5000 odd different designs and colours of fabrics.

Don’t be shy to bring your Colour boards, Carpets Bedspreads, and Furniture Samples into our showroom, and let’s make the decision easy.

Do you stock parts for blinds and tracks?

We sure do. In fact, we have the biggest supply of spares in Auckland for our own blinds and all major manufacturers.

What is your warranty on blinds?

Most of our custom-made blinds come with a 3-year warranty.

How long does it take to get my blinds?

We usually have a turnaround time of 2-3 weeks on blinds. If you are after an urgent order then we most likely help you out.
