SOMMER tiga / tiga+

tiga / tiga+ – the underground garage door operator of the next generation

Product advantages

Highest level of flexibility
Thanks to the separate control unit housing for wall mounting, the passing of cars will not be impeded during installation of the control unit. The tiga und tiga+ underground garage door operators use the same carriage. This reduces the storage space and storage costs for spare parts.

SOMMER tiga / tiga+

Safety thanks to encrypted radio control system
The garage door operator with bidirectional, rolling encrypted radio control system provides maximum security. The SOMloq2 radio control system transmits bidirectionally, which means that feedback on the send command or the door position can be received. The rolling code is encrypted with 128 bits, the same encryption that is used for online banking. Backward compatibility of the transmitter to the Somloq Rollingcode radio control system is always available.

Countless extensions
Useful extensions such as the Memo memory space extension, the Motion detector and countless other accessory modules are also available. Additional connection options are located directly on carriage (slip door contact and safety contact strip OSE or 8k2). Thanks to our modular system, extensions can be installed quickly and easily. Since the connections are located directly on the carriage, no spiral cables are necessary, saving you time and money.

Battery pack for power failures
During a power failure, the operator can be run in emergency mode with our battery pack and the door will never fail.

Emergency release
Thanks to the integrated SOMMER emergency release system, the carriage can be engaged and disengaged in any position. This ensures security in any position, even if there is a power failure.

Environmental and cost efficiency
The energy-saving operator consumes about < 1 watt of energy a year in standby mode, amounting to about €1.80 in electricity costs. It is thereby not only inexpensive to operate, but also environmentally-friendly.

Smooth-running and long-lasting
Thanks to the gear-saving technology, the garage door operator is extremely quiet, low-wear and has a very long lifetime. The operator is completely maintenance-free.

Optimal application of force
The motor track carriage moves itself along a permanently tensioned chain so that no frictional loss and no loss of power occurs as does with a revolving chain.

Clean chain
The galvanised chain is maintenance-free and does not need to be oiled. This prevents oil spots from getting on the door or vehicle.

Improved fire prevention
Due to the flame resistant materials, the operator offers a high safety factor and protects from fires starting.

Universal use – compatible with almost all door types
The tiga und tiga+ underground door garage operator are well-suited for sectional doors, overhead doors, swinging doors, up-and-over doors* and side-opening/side-opening sectional doors. They achieve optimised door parameters thanks to a simple DIP switch function directly on the operator.

* Special fitting required


Our garage door operators are tested and certified according to the strictest guidelines. 30 years ensures that our products are of the highest quality and naturally, "Made in Germany".

Additional equipment

You can create your own optional value-added product with our additional equipment. The modular system structure makes it possible to expand the SOMMER tiga and tiga+ with countless accessories in line with the "plug and play" principle. All accessories are easy to install since sockets are colour-coded and labelled.


SOMMER Lock locking magnet

Magnet motor lock which mechanically blocks the motor in any position (even with ventilation function) up to an attack force of 300 kg, thereby improving the existing break-in protection.

# 1651V000



Used to expand the memory to 450 transmitter commands. During service, saved data can be easily adopted for a new carriage.

# 10373


SOMMER alarm/warning buzzer

Two functions in one product: The alarm buzzer recognises a break-in attempt and outputs a loud signal tone. The warning buzzer, on the other hand, outputs an acoustic signal during the closing process or when the slip door is open.

# 7043V000

LED traffic light red or green

SOMMER LED traffic light

For optical two-way traffic control of your gate system. Offers durability for more than 30,000 hours and is well-suited for both outdoor and indoor use. Can also be combined as a red-green traffic light.

Red traffic light: # 5230V000
Green traffic light: # 3119V000

Frame photo eye

SOMMER frame photo eye

Reliable and precise obstacle detection via the precise detection of objects. The photo eye is mounted so that it is protected against damage. Adjustment with a bicycle, tricycle or rubbish bin is therefore not possible. (Service use) Can be installed directly in the frame.
