        Powered Headrail

        The Powered Headrail is perfect for creating a motorised roman blind from an existing manual blind or with your own choice of roamn blind fabric.

        Motor and Control

        Our electric headrail is powered by a Somfy motor, the world leader in powered blind products. A range of remote handsets, wireless wall switches and timers are available to provide your preferred control option.

        Power Supplies

        The motor is powered by a choice of Somfy power supplies:

        • A plug in battery pack that is mounted behind the roman blind and hidden from view.
        • A compact solar panel designed to fit behind the blind on the inner window pane and continually charge the battery during daylight. A 12V rechargeable battery pack connects to the solar panel with simple plug in connector. The battery supply cable then plugs into the motor to make the power connection complete.
        • A plug in mains adapter - the adapter plugs into a standard plug socket with the supply cable plugging into the motor.
