Somfy® Motorization for
Romasafe Roman Shades with Wood Headrails

Motorized Lift Systems work by winding Romasafe lift bands onto a motorized roller mounted beneath a wood headrail. 

Wood headrails can only be mounted behind the shade - with the shade falling straight down from the front of the headrail.
     
Romasafe motorized wood headrails are 2"- 3.5" deep depending on the size of the shade and the size of the motorized lift system.

Lift Systems can be motorized with a wide variety of Somfy motors:
   
12 Volt DC Battery Powered Motors with separate Reloadable Battery Packs.  Somfy battery powered motors provide a perfect solution for windows where wiring would be difficult. Batteries must be replaced periodically. Battery packs with solar chargers are available.
