What makes the Sommer Direct Drive Garage Door Opener unique is that it has a stationary chain and only 1 moving part. Thus, it’s supposed to be quieter and smoother than conventional garage door openers.
The DC motor is attached to the door to provide maximum lifting force. The motor glides along the chain which is embedded in the steel rail. Thus, there’s no moving chain or belt, and no belt or chain sagging as with regular garage doors.

Has anyone bought and installed this? We’re wondering if it is really quieter. We’d happily replace our garage opener with this if it is much quieter.
