HS20 Cattle Cattle Guards are rated at 16 tons per axle for public roadway construction projects and highways. High load-carrying designs are also available in 25 and 30-tons per-axle designs for equipment too heavy for use on public roads.
If use on your farm or ranch is needed, Barn World also has a large selection of the more economical private driveway cattle guards for use on private property. They are designed to carry fully-loaded semis and are estimated to carry about 11 tons per axle.
Cattle Guards – Rated
Available in four different certified load ratings, these cattle guards are intended for use on public highways and heavy off-road equipment. The American Association of State Highway Transportation Officials (AASHTO) provides guidelines for cattle guards with maximum load ratings. AASHTO load ratings are suitable for all types of applications including heavy-duty logging roads.
AASHTO Design Specifications
Our HS20-rated cattle guards are made from schedule 40 steel and come in a variety of sizes to fit various cattle guard projects. We can alter the design of our cattle guards to use different kinds of pipe and rail depending on your needs. We have used round pipe, square rail, I-beam, and other types of rail and channel to make rated cattle guards that are suitable for all public crossings.
Barn World HS20 -rated cattle guards conform to AASHTO load rating requirements by type of truck and maximum axle load. Our rated cattle guards come with an engineer’s stamp and are certified to meet the AASHTO load ratings so you can feel confident that you are getting the best quality cattle guard.
We also offer a new ATV cattle guard for crossing fence lines on an ATV.
