115 Cattle Rail

  • 115CR panels and gates stand at 1750mm and include 5 x 120mm rails and 100NB galvanised pipe posts
  • Panels are generally made with a post at one end and a curved plate at the other which are welded on site
  • The 115 x 48mm rail is an excellent visual barrier, while the 2mm wall thickness and DuraGal® zinc coating provide the highest strength and longevity on the market (min. zinc coating 100g/m3)
  • 115CR is generally utilized on tropical/zebu breed cattle operations, however has been utilized in ProWay facilities such as commercial sale barns, cattle studs and intensive operations where the highest strength and greater visual barrier is important.

97 Cattle Rail

  • Cattle panels are made from five 97 x 42mm cattle rails and stand at 1.75m
  • ProWay’s cattle rail has been developed specifically for use in cattle corrals.
  • Rails are made from high tensile (grade 450) galvanized steel

  • All panels are made to order for each individual corral design
  • All ends of the rail are notched for the neatest and strongest join to round posts

50NB Pipe Rail

These rails are an extra heavy duty galvanised oval extrusion, 53mm x 35mm

  • The oval profile of tube presents a flat vertical surface, giving excellent visibility with no sharp edges
  • Standard panels have 6 rails and are set at 1050mm high
  • Large gaps between top rails to minimise leg injury to sheep or dogs
  • Posts are fully galvanised 50NB pipe and where swinging gates are longer than 2.5m, 80NB posts are used for strength

40NB Pipe Rail

  • The 40NB pipe rail range is available in a 6 rail configuration, 40NB (48.3 OD) galvanised pipe rails
  • Rails are crimped and welded to fully galvanised 80NB (88.9mm OD) posts
  • 100NB post upgrade is available for extra strength
  • Panels and gates are braced for strength when over 2.5m

32NB Pipe Rail

  • The 32NB pipe rail range is a lighter alternative to the cattle rail made from six 32NB (42.4mm OD) rails and stands at 1.75m
  • It is an economical alternative for backyards and holding yards
  • Rails are crimped and welded to fully galvanised 80NB (88.9mm OD) posts
  • Panels and gates are braced for strength when over 2.5m

Cooler Fence (Cable Backyards)

  • ProWay can supply two different cable options which are suitable for backyard and large holding pens at a reduced cost to the standard panel range.
  • Posts come pre-drilled and are fitted with cable plugs for longevity
  • Strainer assemblies are supplied
  • Post spacings are generally 2.5m with the the option of 2 x 50NB rails, six cables OR 1 x 50NB rail, seven cables.

Overhead Bracing

  • Gates can be upgraded to include overhead bracing
  • Single gates are braced with a 1 ½” pipe.
  • Double gates span over 10 ft are braced with 2” pipe.
  • Gates are braced at 7 ft (from the ground) as standard or up to 11 ft for throughways which require high clearance (i.e. horseback/machinery).

Lever Haz Catch

  • Developed and patented by ProWay
  • For animal safety, the Catch is fully contained inside the gate, not welded on the side
  • This prevents bruising to stock and limits damage to the Catch itself
  • The Catch can be locked open in one movement, so that no part of the bolt is exposed
  • Lever Haz Catches are particularly useful in situations where Catch access is limited
  • Generally, these Catches are installed on the outside of sheeted gates, or where gates need to be operated from a walkway


  • Poplar slam catches are another option for our standard gate range and are fitted to one side of the rail
  • Due to the lever handle, gates fitted with poplar catches are simple and quick to open and can be thrown shut


  • The H-Alley has full sheeting on the outside of the alley preventing distractions effecting stock flow
  • The inner arc of the alley is sheeted ¾ of the outside height to allow visibility and access to stock
  • Alleys are available at any length and are designed with suitable radial arcs to promote stock flow
  • Strength is given by the combination of a heavy duty galvanized frame and underground concreted bracing
  • ProWay can also build non-sheeted H-Alleys using any of our standard rail options


  • The V-Alley includes a fully sheeted outer arc which prevents legs and heads getting out
  • These sections are also made as safety release gates. They can be quickly opened to free overturned stock with two bolt catches (both high and low) so gate sections have no flex
  • The inner arc of the alley is sheeted ¾ of the outside height to allow visibility and access to stock
  • The ‘V’ profile also minimizes the chance of small stock turning around in the alley
  • The curved formation gives better draw up the alley, with stock circling past the operator


  • The lever operated system allows for quick adjustment between widths of 33” and 23” at increments of 2”.
  • The adjustable alley gives flexibility as they’re suitable for multiple breed, size and age operations
  • It also stops smaller cattle turning around
  • It can be implemented to suit both curved and straight alley options
  • Eliminates the necessity of a calf alley
  • Optional overhanging rail allows unrestricted access to cattle
  • Can be adapted to pneumatic or sliding alley gates


  • ProWay have developed an overhanging bracing system that allows fluid movement for the operator while treating cattle, without jeopardizing strength and top rail height
  • Without the overhanging rail there are points in the alley that can be hard to access due to post obstruction
  • The overhanging rail creates a continuous gap that allows access to cattle at any point within the alley

Sliding Gates

  • Two styles of sliding gates are available
  • The conventional pull out sliding gate has no overhanging track on the operators side. The gates are reversible and can be used from either side
  • The alternative style is designed for use with walkways. The gate opens away from the operator. They’re operated by a lever type handle which drops down out of the way

Standard Chain and Catch
