Somfy Automation & Motorisation

Our Motorised & Remote Control Blinds & Awnings by Somfy

Over the past 25-years, Clarks Blinds & Screens has built partnerships only with suppliers who match our commitment to absolute quality. When it came to motorised blinds, Somfy automation was the obvious choice.

Motorised interior and exterior blinds are the perfect addition to the modern home. Offering flexibility and convenience, Somfy automation enhances your lifestyle with blinds, curtains and awnings all under your control with just the touch of a button.

You can even have your motorised blinds, curtains and awnings pre-set on a timer, so they open and close on a regular schedule. Not only will potential intruders think someone is always home, you can make enormous energy savings by having your blinds open as soon as the sun comes up in winter, or close at the hottest part of the day in summer.

The Technical Stuff

Home automation is all about improving your comfort and convenience. Somfy motorised blinds and curtains utilise a purpose-built electric motor to open and close via remote control, timer, or button. Somfy motors can be installed on all types of interior window coverings (from Roller blinds and Venetians through to Roman blinds and curtains) and outdoor blinds, security shutters and awnings.

All Somfy’s products are designed in France at their very own research and development centre that is leading the market in terms of innovation. All their products undergo rigorous testing and inspection, according to highly detailed quality criteria. This helps to ensure performance, durability and longevity.

Motorised blinds, curtains and awnings are custom solutions that must be installed by a professional. A Somfy certified expert, such as Clarks Blinds & Screens will need to help with your selection and then carefully handle the entire installation process.
