SOMMER synoris 550 garage door opener

Our Standard Model. Revolutionary. Reliable.

Unlike conventional garage door openers that use a noisy chain, belt or screw the synoris has only one moving part with no moving chain or belt. The motor glides silently along the chain which is embedded in a sturdy steel rail. It is an extremely quiet garage door opener with virtually no vibrations. Perfect for homes with living spaces above or next to the garage. 

Featuring very smooth operation with soft start and stop technology, the motor is located at the door instead of the back of the opener, maximizing power where you need it most. This is why the synoris is the way to power your garage door. 

Also the only garage door opener with a LIFETIME WARRANTY ON THE ENTIRE OPENER, not just the belt and the motor. 
   


Features:
  • For doors up to 550 lbs. - spring balanced 
  • Ideal for garages with adjacent living spaces
  • No maintenance or lubrication required
  • Low profile - just 1.5 in. clearance needed
  • Soft start and stop relieves stress from the opener
  • Self- locking motor 
  • Includes high quality photo eyes 
  • HomeLink compatible - vehicle remote control system
  • Secure rolling code technology - 310 MHz radio frequency
  • UL 325 certified 
  • Made in Germany
  
STRONG and DURABLE like a chain drive

QUIETER than a belt drive

Best opener available December 24, 2013
Reviewer: Don from Prescott Valley, AZ  
I've had my first opener from Sommer for almost a year. When the opener on my other door started having issues I invested in another Sommer. VERY quiet, very durable, and virtually maintenance free. Easy to install with very clear instructions written in English. There are also videos available on YouTube from Sommer and garage door specialists. One of the issues I have read repeatedly about the Sommer is that it closes very slowly. I timed it with my Liftmaster opener and it took exactly 4 seconds longer! If 4 seconds is an issue for you, then I guess this rules out this opener. I'm not too sure what one of the other reviewers was talking about when he stated that the door would not stop anywhere in it's travel...that is NOT the case. When opening the door, it can be stopped to stay at any given position by pushing the transmitter button. Pushing the button again sends the door back to the closed position. Very simple. Programs easily with the Homelink system in both of my vehicles.

Best opener I have ever owned! December 14, 2013
Reviewer: Michael Williams from Howell, MI United States  
I have had my opener now for about three years.  I have since installed 3 more for customers of mine.  
It is quiet...very quiet.
It's slow opening, but its supposed to be!
The only thing I don't like is that you change Mhz on the unit.  I have some people with 310 and some with 315. That does get confusing.
I would highly recommend the unit!

Excellent garage door opener October 27, 2013
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Irvine, CA  
I replaced a 6-year old belt-driven Chamberlain that sometimes won't close the garage door all the way and had a very short distance on the remote with the Synoris 550. I first saw it at Costco and purchased it from there.  It was the best purchase of a garage door opener I have ever made. It was easy to install, extremely quiet, the remote worked from as far as the street, and so far has been problem free.

Worth EVERY penny October 14, 2013
Reviewer: Al L. from Bellefonte, PA United States  
Don't normally write reviews, but this company goes the distance, and these openers are truly quality products.

After lengthy, thorough research on openers, we settled on Sommer for these reasons:

- Lifetime Warranty on 'anything hanging from the ceiling'!
- Accommodates an 8' high door (without an "extension kit" like any other opener.)
- Customer service - Ordered EXACTLY what I needed directly from Sommer.

I have a detached 3-car garage, so noise was NOT a selling point, but these are the quietest I've ever heard! They were simple to install (watch the videos on this site).  Took less than an hour to assemble all 3, and then about 2 hrs each to install.  That included removing the old openers, adding 2x4's along the ceiling, running the wires, calibrating, and learning the remotes, keypad, and Homelink.

The price was definitely worth the quality, performance, ease of installation/programming, warranty, and top-notch customer service.  Buy with confidence!
