Somfy Systems Earns License to the Works with WELL Trademark

Has attained the trademark for its motors and controls for motorized window shades.

Somfy Systems has attained the Works with Well trademark for its motors and controls for motorized window shades through a licensing program offered by the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI). The new trademark demonstrates Somfy’s motors for window shades align with four health strategies, including L05.2 Daylight Design and 3 Materials Features within the WELL Building Standard (WELL).

Somfy + Works With WELL

WELL is the world’s leading standard that focuses on advancing people’s health and well-being with a library of holistic, evidence-based strategies applicable across buildings, organizations, and communities. Developed over 10 years and backed by the latest scientific research, WELL outlines key building-level interventions and organizational strategies across 10 concept areas: Air, Water, Nourishment, Light, Movement, Thermal Comfort, Sound, Materials, Mind, and Community.

The new trademark acknowledges how Somfy’s solutions are fostering healthier occupant environments through innovative product solutions, meeting the highest standards of performance and efficiency by creating indoor spaces that promote wellness and productivity. Somfy’s motors and controls work to support the WELL Building Standard’s Light and Materials concept and align with L05.2, X05.1, X06.2, X07.2 feature specifications. These alignments mean the product can contribute to the achievement of the following WELL features(s):

  • L05.2 Integrate Solar Shading
  • X05.1 Select Compliant Interior Furnishings
  • X06.2 Restrict VOC Emissions from Furniture, Architectural and Interior Products
  • X07.2 Select Products with Enhanced Ingredient Disclosure

IWBI granted the license to Somfy Systems to use the Works with WELL trademark after Somfy submitted an application to IWBI and underwent a third-party document review to confirm that the following specific products and features meet the requirements for the license required by IWBI:

  • Motors and Controls for Motorized Window Shades

In addition, Somfy Systems is now an IWBI member, joining a network of global brands excited to support the WELL movement by sharing expertise and solutions that advance people’s health and well-being.
