    Default Quiet Window Blinds

    Last year I installed two 12V Somfy made-to-measure window blinds in a bedroom complete with LTS remote to control them both.

    I did wonder why the only video I could find of them in operation had a background muzak track rather than the actual sound of the blinds operating. Don't get me wrong, the blinds are great but I was a little surprised how much louder than expected they were. If I close both blinds simultaneously, at night, the whole house knows!

    I see that Somfy now sell a range of motors from their 'Sonesse' range which they market for their quietness. Has anyone tried them and can compare them to the older models?

    If they are appreciably quieter then it will be a case of finding a made-to-measure service that actually uses them.

    Edit: I've since discovered my original supplier don't supply Sonesse motors because they are hard-wired into the mains rather than battery or transformer powered.
