Our new twist 350 rapido swing gate operator combines two things: All the advantages of the "twist 350" series, plus up to 30 % higher feed speed. In other words, our new swing gate operator is perfect for all customers who like their gates to open and close particularly quickly. Our patented braking system, optimal application of force even in soft run and the tried-and-tested SOMloq2 radio control system ensure high operational reliability.
The twist 350 rapido can be mounted universally with a right or left stop and used in 1-wing or 2-wing operation. And it can move gates with a wing width of up to 3 m or a gate weight of 300 kg.
In view of the increasing spread of the coronavirus in Europe and after intensive consultations, Messe Frankfurt has decided to postpone Light + Building.

Further development of the base+ ceiling control unit
In pursuit of our goal of constantly improving our products, the design of the base+ ceiling control unit has been further optimised.
The upper housing section is now fixed in place with two snap-in hooks and one screw, which is firmly attached to the housing and therefore cannot be lost. This makes overhead installation much easier.
Impressions of the R+T 2018
New Technical Manager: Robert Pearce
"I joined SOMMER at the beginning of October 2017 as the Technical Manager for the UK subsidiary.
I received training on the SOMMER product range and technical information from SOMMER Germany’s technical trainer Holger Beer, who shared with me his extensive knowledge, giving me a great start at SOMMER.
My background is in electronics, television repair, audio and video switching equipment and home automation devices.
I have always had a passion for electronics and working at SOMMER continues this.
I perform testing and repairs on returned SOMMER operators and equipment. I also pre-wire and test all GIGA industrial motors and controllers before they are shipped to customers, as an additional level of quality control.
At SOMMER I have a more customer facing role. I am the first point of contact for technical advice, assisting customers with everything SOMMER, from coding in a remote, to talking engineers through fault finding, over the phone. I also visit site if a customer needs technical assistance, to ensure that we rectify any problems as efficiently as possible, minimising operator down time for our customers and the end user.
My duties here are very varied, as well as the above, I also organise the SOMMER spare parts stock, arrange delivery of warranty replacement parts for our customers and return tested faulty equipment to Germany. No two days are the same here at SOMMER.
I often take customer sales calls and my aim here, at SOMMER, is to deliver great customer service and technical assistance to all SOMMER customers."
SOMMER UK are closed from 2pm on Friday 22nd December and re-open on Tuesday 2nd January at 8am.
We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2018 and some time to relax and to recharge your batteries for new challenges. Thank you very much for a successful year 2017 together. We look forward to continuing the successful cooperative collaboration with you in 2018.
