    • 100NB post upgrade is available for extra strength and longevity.
  • Rotary Force

    • Manual or remote options available.
    • Gate follows cattle around rolled panels reducing area which encourages cattle to enter the race.
    • Padded brake drags around rolled panels and locks in position.
    • Braced overhead for strength and durability.

Gate Options

  • Standard Chain and Catch

    • Chains and the ProWay HAZ catch come standard on all 97CR, 120CR and 50NB gates (except double gates which are chain only).
    • For overnight holding and extra security, the chains can be dropped into the inverted “T” slot which is welded to the rail.
    • The catch has been developed and patented by ProWay as an effective multi-purpose, heavy duty gate catch.
    • For safety, it is fully contained within the line of the gate and not welded onto the side of the gate.
    • The catch can be locked open in one movement, so that no part of the bolt is exposed. This eliminates the chance of injury to cattle particularly when drafting with a gate.
    • The ring pull bolt system is simple to operate from either side of the gate and closes into a fitted pocket on the opposing post.

  • Overhead Bracing

    • Gates can be upgraded to include overhead bracing where applicable.
    • Single gates are braced with a 40NB pipe.
    • Double gates span over 3.1m are braced with 50NB pipe.
    • Gates are braced at 2.2m (from the ground) as standard or up to 3.3m for throughways which require high clearance (i.e. horseback/machinery).

  • Lever Haz Catch

    • Developed and patented by ProWay.
    • For animal safety, the catch is fully contained inside the gate, not welded on the side.
    • This prevents bruising to stock and limits damage to the catch itself.
    • The catch can be locked open in one movement, so that no part of the bolt is exposed.
    • Lever haz catches are particularly useful in situations where catch access is limited.
    • Generally, these catches are installed on the outside of sheeted gates, or where gates need to be operated from a walkway.

  • Poplar Slam Catch

    • Poplar slam catches are another option for our standard gate range and are fitted to one side of the rail.
    • Due to the lever handle, gates fitted with poplar catches are simple and quick to open and can be thrown shut.

Race Options

  • H-Race ¾ Sheeted Inside, Fully Outside

    • The H-Race has full sheeting on the outside of the race preventing distractions outside of the working area from effecting stock flow.
    • The inner arc of the race is sheeted ¾ of the outside height to allow visibility and access to stock.
    • Races are available at any length and are designed with suitable radial arcs to promote stock flow.
    • Strength is given by the combination of a heavy duty galvanised frame and underground bracing which is concreted into the slab work.
    • ProWay can also build non-sheeted H-races using any of our standard rail options.
    View Product
  • V-Race ¾ Sheeted Inside, Fully Outside

    • The V-race includes a fully sheeted outer arc which prevents legs and heads getting out and improves stock flow.
    • These sections are also made as safety release gates. They can be quickly opened to free overturned stock with two bolt catches (both high and low) so gate sections have no flex.
    • The inner arc of the race is sheeted ¾ of the outside height to allow visibility and access to stock.
    • The ‘V’ profile also minimises the chance of small stock turning around in the race.
    • The curve of the design gives better draw up the race, with stock circling past the operator.
    View Product
  • Adjustable Sided Race

    • The lever operated system allows for quick adjustment between widths of 850mm and 600mm at increments of 50mm.
    • The race gives flexibility to your enterprise as there is suitability for multiple breed, size and age operations.

    • Optional overhanging rail allows unrestricted access to cattle.
    • Can be adapted to pneumatic or sliding race gates.
    View Product
  • V-Overhanging Rail

    • ProWay have developed an overhanging bracing system that allows fluid movement for the operator while treating cattle, without jeopardising strength and top rail height.
    • Without the overhanging rail there are points in the race that can be hard to access due to post obstruction.
    • The overhanging rail creates a continuous gap that allows access to cattle at any point within the race.
    View Product
  • Sliding Gates

    • Two styles of sliding gates are available.
    • The conventional pull out sliding gate has no overhanging track on the operators side. The gates are reversible and can be used from either side. They open towards the operator.
    • The alternative style is designed for use with walkways. The gate opens away from the operator, so that the walkway is not blocked by the open gate. It is operated by a lever type handle which drops down out of the road. It also features no overhead gear on the operators’ side.
