'We have seen an upward trend in demand during the early part of the year' says Lorenzo Jones, Managing Director of GateMotors.co.uk. 'The favourable weather along with the additional Bank Holidays have been a bonus to DIY enthusiasts.

Electric gate systems would normally fall into the categories of swing gates with either over ground or underground motors and sliding gates that are possibly cantilevered.
