Motorize Your Gate

your gate immediately indicates the style of the home it is protecting.

Welcome home! Good to know
Good to know

Coming and going with no limits
What’s more practical than an electric gate? Just one click to open
and close the gate, without getting out of the car or parking on the road,
or running out of the house to open up for visitors...
Saving you so much time every day!

Making the right choice for your gate

The opening system depends on the layout of your gate entrance: clearance available inside and possible overlap outside.
Before choosing, check access to your home (on a slope, narrow...)

Making the most

of your motorized gate!

Somfy provides electric motors that are easy to integrate into new or existing gates,
whether sliding gates or swinging gates.
A solar power supply can even be used if you don't want to connect
the gate to the house's electrical system.

Why should you motorize your gate?

  • No more manual efforts! You can open and close your gate without getting out of your car, parking on the pavement or leaving the house open for guests.
  • To strengthen the level of security for your home.
  • To control the gate, side door and garage door opening on a single command.
