To give our opinion on the quality of the products we base ourselves on several parameters. Firstly, our experience and our feelings based on the installations carried out. Next, we consult feedback from customers and users of the systems.

Regarding CAME, the quality is there. This is evident at first glance. Where other brands use plastic covers, CAME manufactures very high quality aluminum covers.

They have a wide range of motorization, whether 24V or 230V, and several types of buried and articulated arm motorization.

CAME automations are the best value for money that you can find for kits with articulated arms. They are also the most robust and reliable.

On certain models, there is also the possibility of controlling the gate with your smartphone.

Disadvantages of CAME

Among the disadvantages, there may be the price for certain engines.

For sliding gates, the covers are made of plastic. This is not very qualitative, but the robustness of the engine is present.

Finally, CAME does not offer any hydraulic solutions.
