Curtains are the most prevalent solution for dressing and covering windows. An infinite variety of curtains are available according to various needs, which are most commonly shading (thick curtains, dark / black out) and ensuring privacy (sheer materials). Very often, two types of curtains are overlaid in order to obtain both results.

Prior to motorising, these points must be established:

  • Is the opening central or on the side?
  • Are the tracks straight or curved?
  • Is it a pleated or ripple curtain?
  • Is the motor on the right or on the left?

Combined with a straight or angled curtain track, Somfy motors will allow users to automate any type of curtain up to 60 kg.
