Somfy Sonesse40 motor – an ideal option for a High Window

This 15ft-high window is covered by a Maxxmar 3%-transparency screen operated by a powerful Sonesse40 motor. One screen covers both the upper and lower parts of the window giving it a modern clean look and providing enough privacy for the people inside. The motor is hard-wired, with wires hidden into a special channel inside the window frame and then behind the drywall and plugged into a receptacle beneath the window.

Somfy Sonesse 30 wireless motor – an optimal solution for a condo

This living room has two glass walls and the owners wanted a solution to darken the room for watcing their 80″ TV and at the same time to have an elegant window covering to fit their modern black-and-white decor. Maxxmar Mandalay dual shade (Vue Ebony fabric) with a silent Sonesse 30 wire-free motor is a solution to reduce the amount of sunlight and heat coming through the windows during the daytime,  and enjoy the daylight and the view by effortlessly opening the shades with a remote. Sonesse 30 wire-free motor is the most silent of Somfy’s motors, and and did not require any wires installation. The motor can be re-charged once or twice a year.
