    Is it possible to have an automated system fitted to my current driveway gates or will I need to replace them with entirely new gates?

    "Yes you can have the power assistance arms fitted to your current gates they even do a solar-powered kit now which I install quite often which is great."

    "It might be possible to fit a new automated system for the gates you already have, but it all depends on what kind of opening your gate has! You might have to change the gate as well!"

    "This is not standard practice for the main reason being that the gates are manufactured to work with motors which include gears etc. However, all depending upon the type of gates. There are electric motorised units that can be used which can be attached to your gates. You will need a professional installer to inspect them and location to give you the best advice."
