TORMATIC has been a member of the Bundesverband Antriebs- und Steuerungstechnik. Tore e.V.  (Federation of Drive and Control Engineering. Doors), abbreviated to BAS.T for short, for many years. Last year, the new BAS.T Seal of Quality was launched as an explicit indicator for highest quality and safety standards.

In February 2018, our garage door operators type BLACK 600 and BLACK 800 went through the certification program and were awarded with the BAS.T Seal of Quality.

„Our products reflect our high quality standards. The certification means for us no-holds-barred safety “, said Michael Hamacher, Head of Sales and Marketing.



From 27 February to 3 March 2018, the R+T 2018 in Stuttgart – the world's leading trade fair for roller shutters, doors/gates and sun protection systems – was definitely at its best. 1,027 exhibitors from 41 countries packed the entire exhibition area in the ten Messe Stuttgart halls. Over 65,500 visitors from Germany and abroad were delighted by the high innovation capacity of products and services on exhibition.

TORMATIC once again attended the successful trade fair and presented itself as a system provider for operator and control solutions both for the residential as well as for the commercial sector.

„In the garage door operator sector the increasing importance of the new market trends in all aspects of smart home can be observed. By using our new Delta Dore system the operator can be controlled by app. In addition the system can be extended to include numerous components like light switches or cameras.” explained Volker Klute, Technical Sales / Key Account.

Besides operators for garage doors and yard gates there were presented solutions for industrial applications like control units for industrial doors and dock levelers. However, the main focus was on the i-Control system to reduce heating costs for industrial buildings.
