It can be really hard to decide whether to automate your existing gates or replace them.  You can find that as you spend more time at your home that you want to make it easier to enter your property. We can help whether you want to automate your existing gates or replace them.

Do you want to improve your property by adding an electronic gate? You may assume that you have to completely replace your existing manual gate in order to do so. However, this isn’t necessarily the case. Here at Elex Gates and Barriers, we can automate existing gates. If you have a pre-existing gate, we can turn it into an electronic gate, regardless of the material it’s made from and its size and shape. But should you choose to have your existing gate automated, or should you have it replaced with a brand new electronic sliding gate? To help you decide which option is right for you, we’d like to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each option.

1. Existing gate automation
If you’re particularly fond of your current gate’s appearance, you can have it automated instead of replacing it. By automating your existing gate, you can add an electronic gate to your property without sacrificing its current aesthetic. In some cases, it may also be cheaper to automate an existing gate than to pay for a whole new one. However, it’s important to remember that your current gate wasn’t originally designed to be automated, so it may not be as secure as a new electronic gate, even after it’s been automated. Existing gate automation is a great option if you are attached to your current gate but don’t need to worry about its level of security.

2. Replacing your gates with electronic sliding gates
When you invest in a brand new set of electronic gates, you are investing in a product that will last for years and will help to keep your property secure. Every aspect of your new gate will be carefully crafted and installed to ensure that it has a long lifespan and works perfectly. If you need a top-quality gate that you can rely on for years to come, we recommend investing in a new set of electronic gates to replace your old manual gates. Just remember that if you choose this option, you won’t be able to retain the exact style of your original gates.

Whichever option appeals to you most, get in contact with us ASAP. We can replace your gates or automate them as soon as you’ve made your decision.
