Sommer Direct Drive Garage Door Opener
The Sommer unit is unique in that the motor and drive mount to the garage door, not to the track, producing much more force as the gear pulls the motor and door along the chain. In fact, this unit is rated as being able to lift doors that weigh as much as 1,000 pounds. The unit requires very little space and can be installed with only 1.5 inches of clearance and the motor is self-locking, preventing people from forcing it open. Rolling code technology keeps others from stealing your code and getting into your home. This unit is HomeLink compatible, allowing it to be controlled by your home's central controller.
