Frequently Asked Questions / Why do you offer a Form versus a steel cattle guard?

Our engineered concrete FORM gives you a huge advantage. You get more for less. With this FORM you can pour your own HS-20 concrete cattle guard for way less than what it would cost in steel. Concrete cattle guards are superior in strength and longevity compared to steel. Our “cast-in-place” concrete FORM will give you a cattle guard that delivers better protection against horizontal or vertical impacts and most importantly weather and water. Steel cattle guards are sold more often because they’re cheaper to make and lighter (and less expensive) to ship compared to concrete.

Having said that, steel cattle guards are still heavy (Many times heavier than our form). So heavy that you’ll have to have a forklift to offload. Our concrete form (pre-installed with high-tensile strength light-weight GFRP rebar) weighs only 140 pounds. It’s easier to off-load and install. Once the form is filled with 4000 psi concrete you have a HS-20 rated, rust proof (GFRP doesn’t rust), cattle guard at an affordable price.

Our Reusable cattle guard form weighs only 78 pounds. And is rated at HS-20 also (You install your own rebar)
