Motorized Roller Shade Commercial Project in Chandler Arizona

May 30, 2017

We were recently contracted to design, build, and install a motorized shading solution package for a commercial customer in Chandler, Arizona. The client was looking to block the intense summer sun while still allowing light to enter the space. They are a technology company and the sun was creating glare across hundreds of computer screens in their office. After our project consultations, a white/pearl Phifer 1% shading fabric with an aluminum fascia was selected. The automatic shades were powered by ST50R Sonesse RF Quiet Motors hardwired into the buildings existing electrical system. The shades were controlled by a SOMFY MYLINK hub, a 16 channel handheld remote, and a few strategically placed Somfy 5 channel wall switches. The shades were set on a schedule with shades raising and lowering on different days at different times to maximize the energy efficiency of the building.

The installation was a challenge because of some existing structures in the building that gave us limited access to many of the higher window openings. Each installer on our team worked a total of 26 hours on the job over one weekend and spent most of their time on ladders and lifts. Needless to say, the guys were a little tired at the end of Sunday but we were all proud of the work we accomplished and the finished shading solution. We were able to hand over the Somfy controls to the building manager with a smile on Monday. Their employees are enjoying the automatic shades and the improved comfort in the office.

We are extremely pleased with our whole experience with this company. From sales to installation, everyone we dealt with was courteous and professional. They delivered exactly as promised from the quote, to the installation and did a great job! The shutters took our house from beautiful to stunning! Highly recommend this company!
Blinds look awesome! The install was quick and lacked any drama. Just like I want. :-) We will definitely be buying from them again once we redo a couple areas in the house first.
The entire experience was excellent. We had roller shades installed throughout our home. The online notification system after your order is great. We received regular email updates regarding the status of the fabrication of our order, delivery, and installation.
Southwest Blinds was wonderful to work with. The communication was excellent. All the employees from sales to the installers were professional and kind. Answered all our questions. I highly recommend them.

We would highly recommend Southwest Blinds & Shutters and are looking forward to having the rest of our windows done with them.
Fast and professional. Super efficient and detail-oriented. Very pleased with the service they provided. Don’t hesitate to schedule them for your blind and shutter needs.
They did a great job installing my shutters. Very polite and went the extra mile to do some minor adjustments that I requested. He identified a couple of things that were incorrect on my order and made sure new items were ordered. He came back to reinstall the corrected pieces and did a great job.
This is one top notch company! They provided a wonderful variety of samples when they came to my home and were able to patiently answer all my questions about their products. Very professional! I felt like they really cared about my satisfaction with my choices all the way to the final installation. The installer was on time, pleasant, very neat, and did a wonderful job. I absolutely love my new shutters and would highly recommend Southwest Blinds and Shutters to anyone in the Valley. You will not be disappointed!
The technician who measured our windows and eventually installed them did a professional job and was done very quickly. Got our rebate form promptly and would do business again if we are ever in need.
James was doing a job across the street and we asked him to come over for an estimate. We hired on the spot and were genuinely pleased with the quality and service we received. He worked fast and clean and on time. Very pleased with the outcome.
