Our roller blind production facility has now re-opened and we are taking all necessary measures to ensure manufacturing is fulfilled in line with the appropriate guidance. Somfy accessories are also available to order from our controls & accessories section, but with an increased lead time of 10 days. If there are any further changes or updates we will continue to update the information posted here. Thank you for your understanding at this time.*
