Technical characteristics

The Nice TOONA motorization is designed for 1 or 2 leaf swing gates. It can operate both in automatic and semi-automatic closing. That is to say, either with a timed closing, or closing by pressing the button on the remote control. In order to protect the motor and the gate, it has a slowdown at the end of the stroke and the opening offset can be configured.

The motor release is located on these. It is easy to access.

This kit is given for 50 to 100 cycles/day, which means that for use by an individual the motorization will last for many years.


The Toona Nice kit is a complete set that allows you to automate your gate very easily. The first advantage is that the Nice brand offers a lot of accessories compatible with their entire system.

Then, this engine is one of the most durable on the market. It is insensitive to gusts of wind. It can be used for intensive use.

It has a pedestrian opening so you don’t have to wait for it to fully open.

The inconvenients

There is some customer feedback regarding plastic cable glands which can be brittle on certain engines, but this remains specific and does not prevent the kit from functioning. Otherwise, we have nothing to complain about this engine. Its price may seem high but given the lifespan of such a kit, it seems reasonable to us.

Installation of Toona automation

Are you wondering if it is possible to carry out the installation alone or if it is better to call a professional? Please note that installation is quite simple. However, the attachment of the motor to the pillar and to the gate must be robust. This will determine the durability of your engine.

Concerning the electrical part, wiring the elements together is child’s play. To connect the control box to the mains, remember to cut off the electricity and work safely. If you are unsure, call a professional.

Programming will pose no problem for you, the instructions are clear and precise, you have all the instructions to properly program your gate.

Our opinion on the Toona engine from the Nice brand

The Toona engine is robust and durable. We can’t say that it is silent, but it is really efficient and will flawlessly maintain your gate even during strong gusts of wind. Its installation is simple and you will not regret buying the Nice brand. We recommend this engine without hesitation.
