Brading Specialty Shades trusts the quality of Somfy controllers, motors and accessories to provide professional level motorization capabilities to virtually any window shading product. Somfy is the world's leading manufacturer of specialized motors and control systems for interior shades, blinds and other lift-up applications for the home.

Now you can push a button on your remote transmitter or flip a switch and watch as your fashionable horizontal blinds, shades, solar screens, or draperies roll up and down or open and close to conveniently provide shade from the sun, privacy when you want it, or allow light to enter as you wish. All this is yours when you add Somfy motorization and our stylish line of decorator switches, remote, automatic and group controls.

Motorization helps your blinds, shades and draperies last longer because the manual pulling and tugging goes away and so does the associated wear and tear. What's more, Somfy's unique motorization system eliminates cord tangling and overlap to provide the smoothest and most uniform movement of your shades and blinds…and you know how frustrating it is to pull the cord of a manual blind or shade and have it roll up or down in an uneven manner.

You'll also realize the convenience and time-saving benefits of pressing a button and moving your interior window coverings to the position you want without having to move from window to window and room to room.

Somfy's range of reliable motors are easily concealed behind a decorative headrail which is typically part of your window treatment. This design feature enables a motorized shade, blind, or solar screen to look just like a manual one, so it only complements your décor. What's more, our wired motors and controls are UL and CSA approved for safe operation, while utilizing very little electricity. Another extremely important safety factor for residential blinds and shades is that motorization eliminates hanging cords, which can be dangerous around small children.

By choosing a Somfy product , you can be sure that you are making the right choice. It is a guarantee of quality which certifies both performance and reliability. So keep an eye out for the Somfy logo, to guarantee you are buying the best motorized products!

Somfy manufactures and distributes quality products that have been rigorously tested to provide you with years of dependable use. It's no wonder that many Somfy products installed more than 20 years ago are still providing maintenance free operation.

Somfy is proud to have achieved ISO 9001 Certification as well as safety approvals from Underwriters Laboratories and the Canadian Standard Association.
