Sheep Yards by National Stockyard Systems
The gate system and joining system used in
our sheep yards (and all other yards in our range) are protected
by Australian Registered Design No 11434/2005 and Australian
Patent No. 2009100939.
This revolutionary gate and joining
system was also awarded the Encouragement Award at the
prestigious "The Land & NSW Farmers Association Farm Inventor Of
The Year Competition at Ag Quip 2005.
The system is exclusive to National
Stockyard Systems Pty Ltd.
cut and welded for strength (not straight cut or bent).
Gusset braced to maintain frame square.
Ground pin cleats standard. Ground pins are included in all
Gate swings back 180 degrees to follow sheep flow and generally
rests beside a panel to prevent stock being stuck behind it or
breaking gate off its hinges. Also a 2.8-meter gate can be
closed while standing 6 meters from the latch.
Fail safe stop prevents gate flying past slam catch.
Gate will swing over 90 degrees
through if sheep flow direction is required to be reversed. This
is simply achieved by lifting the gate. Solid continuous gudgeon
allows for vertical movement to override the fail safe slam
catch if required.
Slam catch is standard on all gates under 3.3M on all yards.
Even small yards for small numbers should facilitate easy, low
stress and enjoyable stock handling.
Not just a generic gate. Note the left hand or right hand
closing of the gates. This tailors each gate to sheep flow
requirements. (Pictured is a left hand closing gate).
Most gates close on the outside
of the yard. As the gate can be swung and latched from any
position this means you are closer to the centre of the yards
which mean less walking.
Slam catches standard on all gates under 3.3metres.
