Solar motors: AvosDim VS Somfy

Both the AvosDim and Somfy solar-powered motor systems are of excellent quality, and are both compatible with installing the panel on the shutter box or on the wall. The Somfy motor, panel and battery option is a premium, well-known brand, which allows connectivity with other io homecontrol ® protocol products. If the connectivity or brand assurance isn't a priority, we recommend our own-brand AvosDim solar-panel system, offering excellent value and matching performance.
Similar features & performance aside, the AvosDim option has a big advantage over the Somfy alternative: the emergency power supply via a charger connects to the motor without opening the roller box, thanks to a waterproof jack socket located below it. Effective and affordable! Optional backup power supply - highly recommended

Elegant solar panel plate

Did you know? The solar panel doesn't require direct sunlight to collect solar energy. A few hours of sunshine are enough to charge the battery inside the panel. Once fully charged, it easily ensures up to 150 cycles!

AvosDim and Somfy monocrystalline solar panels, aesthetically similar, are intended to be compact and inconspicuous, preserving the aesthetics of the building facade.
The two bi-directional solar panel systems are compatible with AvosDim 005313 connected home box and the Tahoma Switch box (sold separately). Thanks to the bi-directional (2-way) technology, information including the current status of the roller shutter, battery charge and more is provided...

Offset installation of the solar panel

The two brands of roller shutter solar panels allow installation directly on the box or offset on the wall, to best optimise the reception of solar energy.
If you have chosen installation on the box, our technicians will position it in the desired location. Alternatively, we position the motor on the chosen panel side, supplying 2 wall brackets for fixed inclination at 15°. The black cable, starts from the underside of the box to connect with the panel. The length depends on the brand. The information is available in the comparative table, as well as the dimensions of the panels.

Please note: The position of the cable outlet under the box makes the offset panel option incompatible with inward box reveal fits.

Manual battery charging

AvosDim and Somfy solar batteries have a substantial autonomy without needing to charge, between 45 and 50 days on average. As a precaution, it is always recommended to have a charger for backup power. The model compatible with your battery is displayed as an option in the configurator. It's also possible to purchase at a later date, as we stock the AvosDim and Somfy emergency power supplies seperately on the site.
The AvosDim model can be recharged without opening the box, while the Somfy model requires one of the box sections to be opened during charging.

Aluminium vs. PVC slats

aluminium slats

The all-aluminum roller shutters offer optimal sound insulation and enhanced security. Aesthetically, the choice of colours is extensive and the finish is effectively resistant to UV and weather wear.

  • Visible dimensions of aluminum slat: 42 x 8.80mm; weight = 2.31Kg/m2

  • Polyurethane foam injected: density 90kg/m3

  • Additional thermal resistance (?R Class 4) = 0.15 m2 K/W

  • Aluminum thickness: 27/100e

  • Crimped slat ends to wedge the alignment of the slats between them; slats are protected during operation, and quieter

  • Apertures between slats, except spring & lock type shutters

pvc slats

PVC slats have high thermal insulation while the material is a more economical option. The material is sensitive to UV and bad weather, and colour fading, especially white. PVC slats are always associated with an aluminum frame, ie box, side guide tracks and bottom slat.

  • Visible dimensions of PVC slat: 39 x 8.20mm (weight = 2.82Kg/m2)

  • Slat apertures except spring & lock type shutters
