Ideal for swing gates where the operator should not be seen.
Even stronger than the twist UG: The twist UG+ is ideal for heavy swing gates with a weight of up to 600 kg and where you don’t want the operator to be visible!
The use of active safety contact strips on the main and secondary closing edges is mandatory for the twist UG+.
Invisible in attractive gates
The operator is mounted in the ground and does not affect the appearance of the gate in any way. The design of the gate is accentuated.
Safety thanks to encrypted radio control system
The SOMloq2 bidirectional radio control system transmits radio signals in both directions. Feedback on the send command or the gate position can be received. The rolling code is encrypted with 128 bits.
Power failure – what now?
The mechanical emergency release can be activated manually with a key to open your gate when there is a power failure. Even if there is strong contact pressure on the operator, the release lock can be triggered with low application of force and you can get to your property. Alternatively, the operator can be run in emergency mode with our battery pack.
Simple retrofitting of accessories
Thanks to our modular system, accessories can be installed quickly and easily at any time.
Connection options for 8k2 safety contact strips are already integrated on the control unit as standard.
With the existing multi-function relay, you can connect and control external devices (e.g. yard light). You can also extend the convenience and safety functions of your operator at a later time if your requirements change.
Functions which make daily life easier
The walk-through function can be used to open only one gate wing and reach the property by bike, for example. This makes an additional garden gate unnecessary, making it possible to fully utilise the whole width of your driveway.
With the automatic closing function, you can be sure that the gate is always locked behind you. After the photocell is passed, the gate automatically closes after a set time.
The operator uses the warning light to signal whether and when gate maintenance is needed. This considerably increases the service life of the gate and the operator.
Save money and protect the environment
The energy-saving operator consumes about 0.5 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.
Long service life thanks to gentle soft run
The gate and the operator are preserved thanks to the "Open" and "Close" soft run features. Shortly before the gate end positions, the speed decreases, which preserves the mechanics and increases the service life. No annoying closing noises.
Reliable with frequent use
The operator is well-suited for multiple-family houses. Operating time 40% - that means it is in operation for 4 minutes out of 10.
Carefree with high-quality materials
The housing consists of stainless steel and stainless aluminium which withstands stress caused by weather. Optionally available with galvanised steel.
With our additional equipment, you can generate your own optional added value. The modular system design enables you to expand the SOMMER door operator with numerous accessories according to the "plug and play" principle. All accessories can be easily assembled, as the slots are color-coded and labeled exactly.
In the event of a power failure, the battery pack supplies energy to the gate operator for up to 12 hours with a maximum of 10 gate cycles (OPEN/CLOSE). The battery pack is automatically recharged during normal operation.

The difference between the swing gate operators twist UG and twist UG+ is the gate weight per wing. The twist UG is for swing gates with a gate wing weight of up to 350 kg, the twist UG+ for swing gates with a gate wing weight of up to 600 kg.
The swing gate operator twist UG+ is ideal for heavy swing gates where you don’t want the operator to be visible. The operator can be mounted between or in front of the gate posts. It is important to make sure that the rotation point of the gate is also the rotation point of the operator.
