StorePosted by Tx Wed, August 04, 2010 09:24:14 We get lots of questions asking if Sommer Remote Controls are compatible with Henderson Operators.
The answer is Yes - If you own a Henderson Sprint, Marathon, Duo or Aperto.
Sommer were the suppliers to Henderson Garage doors for many years, that was before there parent Swedish company Cardo - made a quite frankly stupid commercial decision forcing the British based manufacturer to switch to a vastly inferior product in answer to the shareholders - Why oh Why do we often hear or have to experience accountants being appointed by the board of directors as Managing Directors?
If you work for a company with an accountant at the elm - GET OUT WHILE YOU CAN! Unless of course you are an accountant working within an accountancy company, Please stay there - where you will best serve the business community!
By the way - Henderson went into liquidation recently - I wonder why?

At 7.30pm last Friday we received a call from a distressed customer who's 5 year old son had accidentally closed the garage door via the internal wall button having left the only remote control inside the garage. The problem as it turned out was that despite having two separate garage doors and no other access into the garage i.e. no second access such as a side entrance door! The customer only had one remote control which had been programmed into both doors; result - locked out of the garage with no other means of access! There was no alternative but to break into the garage via a side window to retrieve the item and open the door.
To be honest, the shady contractor who installed the system, having realized there was no second access should have installed an emergency release kit for such an occasion or power cut, which renders this type of operator unusable.
We have now not only supplied the correct advice but also a second remote, wall station and emergency release kit, to help ensure that this kind of incident never occurs again! NEVER OWN JUST ONE REMOTE CONTROL.
