The Somfy Glydea system is a very quiet, smooth curtain track system. Tracks can span up to 15m and can be bent with a 300mm radius. The curtains can be operated manually, simply by pulling the fabric in the desired direction (Ideal for hotels etc).

Curtains can be stacked at left or right and center closing is an option. The motors can be mounted below or above the track. Ceiling fix, face fix and double track brackets are available.

Another handy feature is that by tugging on the curtain in the desired direction, the motor senses the movement and continues moving the curtain to the final position.


Shutters double as a good security mechanism as one can lock your house up with a single click.  They block out the light and keep your house warm in winter and cool in summer. One can couple up your shutters to your home automation system or program them to open and close at certain times of day easily and quickly by remote. We do two types of shutters namely, roller and swing shutters.

Roller shutter

The popularity of roller shutters keeps increasing. Thanks to the variety in which they are produced it is possible to use aluminium roller shutters for any type and shape of windows. Roller shutters offer excellent security. They protect against heat loss and provide insulation from sound as well as block out nearly 100% light. The aluminium roller shutters protect window from the elements increasing their durability. The roller shutters are secured with a special spring against lifting. Roller shutters can be motor-operated or manually operated.

Swing Shutter

Shutters are made either from aluminium or PVC. The aluminium shutters are great for security and temperature control. Shutters are made from aluminium, wood or PVC.
