Glydea™, the difference is in the details

The sophistication of Glydea™ is reflected in the simple form and sleek lines of the motor and the track.


The Glydea™ motor range is a product of years of industry experience and expertise. This reliable motor solution offers a superior user experience as well as a wide array of features and exemplifies Somfy's continued commitment to quality.


Deisgned for residential, commercial and hospitality markets, the Glydea™ range provides a convenient solution for glare reduction and privacy while also reducing energy costs and protecting interiors from damaging UV rays.


Glydea™ is available for all drapery types including pinch pleat, RippleFold and Accordia. Additionally, it has been designed to easily adapt to various control technologies including infrared, dry contact, Radio Technology Somfy™ (RTS), RS485, Z-Wave® and ZigBee®.


  • Patented control module cover design conceals unsightly cables and protects the connectors and control modules inside the motor.
  • Automatic or adjustable limit settings.
  • Track design and swivel ceiling bracket minimize the light gab.
  • Soft start and soft stop.
  • Back release function and rail design promote optimal stacking of drapery fabric (available with Glydea™ 35).
  • Improved arm design provides even overlap and even stack back.

Easy Installation

  • Spring loaded one-touch hardware (wall and ceiling mount).
  • Motor can also be installed to the right or to the left side of the track.
  • Inverse (top mount) options allows the motor to be installed above the track.


  • Motor design and the use of a timing belt provides quiet operation (44dBA).
