Comfortex Introduces Motorization For Cellular Shades

MAPLEWOOD, NY - Comfortex Window Fashions, a leading innovative manufacturer and fabricator of custom window treatment products for global distribution, is pleased to announce a battery powered motorization system for its entire collection of cellular shades.

The motor system, powered by Somfy motorization, allows homeowners to raise and lower Comfortex Cellular Shades without having to manually adjust individual treatments by the pull cords. By flipping a switch or pushing a button, the shades can be opened or closed on demand to provide privacy and light control when needed. Timers and sun activated sensors can also be ordered to operate shades automatically.

“For years, we have analyzed and tested motorization systems for cellular shades,” stated John C. Fitzgerald, Executive Vice President of Comfortex. “With the radio frequency systems from Somfy, we have products that provide excellent performance and a wide range of features. The systems enhance the versatility of the cellular shades by making them ideal for hard-to-reach windows and for rooms where the customer wants maximum control at their finger tips.”

The Somfy cellular shade motors use radio frequency (RF) technology with multi-channel capabilities for entire window ensembles. Similar systems with radio frequency and infraredtechnology, are already available with Woodwinds® Wood Alloy Blinds, Basswoods Blinds and Shangri-La® Sheer Horizontals. Motorized options are coming soon for Serenade™ Roman and Roller Shades and Balcony™ Skylight Shades.
