Designed for silence, Somfy Glydea Ultra is the quietest motor system for draperies in the market for any space where silence offers well-being.

Motorised curtain systems are convenient solutions to adjust the natural light in an interior. The downside of a motorised system is often the whirring sound it makes, which could take away the comfort of a silent and soothing environment. The smartest solutions, after all, are inconspicuous, and should neither be seen nor heard. Enter Somfy Glydea Ultra.
Founded in 1969 in Cluses, France, Somfy is the world leader in automatic control of openings and closures in homes and buildings. Its leading smart management solutions for homes and buildings have been improving people’s daily lives for 50 years. Developed with comfort, ease of use, security and sustainability in mind, Somfy’s innovations automate interior shades such as curtains and blinds, and external coverings such as awnings and garage shutters.
Today, Somfy produces solutions for some of the most renowned residential and commercial buildings. The company has produced more than 160 million motors and served more than 270 million users worldwide. The Somfy innovation lab has more than 1,783 patents in its portfolio!
One of Somfy’s latest product offering, Somfy Glydea Ultra is a high-end motor system for draperies that promises to be ultra quiet, ultra powerful and ultra adaptable. Contained within a compact cylinder with champagne brushed aluminium finish, Somfy Glydea Ultra absorbs the sounds caused by vibrations, ensuring silence in motion.
With an acoustic performance that is less than 38dBA*, which is comparable to the sounds of a smooth-flowing stream, Somfy Glydea Ultra is the quietest curtain operator in the market.
Somfy Glydea Ultra‘s sleek casing is also designed to blend seamlessly into every decor both residential and commercial. It can operate up to 60 kilograms of draperies and is suitable for all curtain types, from light-filtering chiffon and linen to heavy blackout drapes.
The system is also compatible with multiple technologies to suit user-control preferences. With Somfy, users can now enjoy the convenience of adjusting and customising their shades via remote controls, sensors, phone app or even through voice commands**!
