High Quality & Durability
Our cattle guards are built to the highest quality standards and made to last. This is not some homemade project using round or common tube steal that will bend and break over time. Cattle Guards America manufacture the strongest of its kind, utilizing Grade 50 rectangular tubing steel or trapezoidal caps and they’re manufactured in one of our AISC certified facilities in a controlled environment. Every connection weld point goes through our rigorous QC check and inspection process.
BLM and USFS Standard Cattle Guards
BLM cattle guards meet the highest standards required by the United States Bureau of Land Management “BLM”. BLM cattle guards come in standard configuration designed to carry HS-20 44 vehicle loads. They are painted using Federal Safety Yellow but are also available unpainted.
USFS cattle guards meet the highest standards required by the United States Forest Service “USFS”. USFS cattle guards come in standard configurations designed to carry HS-20 44 vehicle loads. This load as it would apply to a cattle guard, is similar to an HL-93 live load. This means they can carry a normal, highway legal truck load and livestock trailers.
Foundation and Installation Recommendations
For more stability, it is suggested to place a foundation under your cattle guard to avoid settlement. Railroad ties, concrete footers or even steel beams can all be used to provide more stability. This foundation will help create a void between the ground and cattle guard. While concrete bases are not supplied for purchase online (unless you plan to pick them up or you are close to our Rapid City, SD facility), we have options available by contacting us at 406-656-2253. Having some sort of foundation will help create a void between the ground and cattle guard.
