HIMMEL® door and gate drives 

HIMMEL® Industrial door systems

Gears and motor are built into a single sturdy and well-designed unit. The gear housings are sturdy, vibration-damping and designed for continuous operation. All drives are further developments of our transmissions and are also based upon our existing modular system. This allows us to cover a wide range of torque and speed applications.  Oil loss and ingress of dust is prevented by radial sealing rings with a dust gutter. All gear wheels are helically geared, polished and surface hardened. This guarantees smooth operation.

HIMMEL® door and gate drives are used to drive rolling gates, lifting gates, sectional doors and fast opening gates. HIMMEL® door and gate drives were initially developed for use in the food sector (e.g. cold stores), so that they can be easily used in environments requiring a higher level of protection.

HIMMEL® door and gate drives can be supplied with anti-fall protection if desired.

Our HIMMEL®-gear units and gear motors are available in the following versions:

  • HIMMEL®-worm gear motor SL50
  • HIMMEL®-cartridge SLP150
