Gate system

Passages and gate systems can often become an underestimated weak point in a fence system:
  • the animals are used to this being the "known way home" - should they want to take it, they are most likely to try it at the gate due to conditioning.
  • Due to the passage situation, the ground is excessively stressed and becomes deeper: the desired max. distance between the lowest line of the gate construction and the ground line should always be checked here (especially in case of wolf pressure or other intruders from outside).
  • The posts at the gate are subject to particularly high tensile forces: they are the starting and end point of the fence line as well as the axle point for the gate system itself (special loads apply here, especially with grazing gates).
  • The required gate construction should be chosen according to the type of animal, gate type and width, and the required products should be used: otherwise there is a risk of the electrification in the fence being diverted and reduced guarding safety.
The functionality and interrelationships between re-electrification must therefore be well conceived, especially for gates, so as not to endanger the safety of the entire fence system at this point. For each application there is the optimal combination of products and solutions, many of them with a clear added value, for example re-tensioning of the conductor material, than "only" the function as a gate component. It is also important that animals cannot get tangled and injured - just like on the rest of the fencing system.
A distinction is made between the following gate types:
Torkonstruktion aus Einzelkomponenten für Weidezäune
Gate construction from single components
Here, the possibility of a passage is usually created with the conductor material from the fence course, gate handles and the appropriate insulators and connectors. The insulators at the start/end point are designed for the transition or stop of the conductor material from the fence course and at the same time enable the power to flow into the conductor material of the gate. At this point, the connectors at the transitions of the conductor material are also important: these should be adapted to the conductor material in the best possible way in order to ensure electrification here as well and not to create artificial resistance. Gates made of individual components can be used in almost any width and on any type of fence.

Torkonstruktion mit Torsets oder FlexiGates für Weidezäune
Gate construction with gate sets or FlexiGates
With pre-assembled gate sets and FlexiGates, the central components are supplied optimally matched to each other. FlexiGates in particular have integrated retraction mechanisms that wind the pasture fence tape or rope into a compact housing and thus stow it safely while the animals pass through the gate. Gate sets with an exposed spring must not be used for horses, as manes and tails can become dangerously entangled. A special variation of gatesets are ElectroGates, which are often used especially for cattle pastures. The torsets and FlexiGates are available in different maximum widths and can therefore be used in almost all cases.

Torkonstruktion mit Weidetoren schließt eine Pferdeweide
Gate construction with pasture gates
Rigid pasture gates are a highly visible boundary made of galvanised steel and thus a particularly robust physical barrier. They are used in fixed fence or permanent fence construction. Additional electrification makes them even safer, especially against intruders from outside (keyword herd protection!). Pasture gates are available in flexible extendable versions as well as in many different standard widths. Mounted accordingly, they are easy to operate and are a stable solution for many years - however, they also require the appropriate space to be moved.

Of course, the following also applies to the components on the gate: electrically conductive components and connectors should be rust-free and preferably made of stainless steel - insulators and gate handles must not be weathered or porous!
