So, in a few paragraphs allow us to enlighten you as to this option.
Quiet motors use noise reduction technology. Now, to be sure your standard motorized roller, once activated might make a slight click to start and then a low level hum can be heard during operation. Believe us when we say, nothing obnoxious here as relates to noise. In fact, to some it is sort of a cool sight and sound.
Standard 110v roller shade motors operate around 52 decibels and are acceptable in many applications. Quiet Motors operate at approximately 44 dB from a distance of 3 feet away. This represents a 50% reduction in the noise produced by a standard motor. In addition the distinctive click heard when a standard motor starts up is also eliminated.
Quiet motors are generally considered for rooms where motor noise could be an issue. Bedrooms and rooms with a lot of motors are most often considered as applications for the noise reduction technology built into the motor and the shade hardware.
