Deer Grates, Concrete Deer Grates & Metal Deer GratesDeer grates are very heavy structures made of concrete (7000-9000 lbs each piece) or metal (1800- 2500 lbs) that are placed into your driveway entrance. Deer fencing, masonry or another type of obstacle is positioned to either side to prevent deer from jumping the grates front to side. Deer grates have raised slats on which the deer won't walk because of uneven footing.
Deer grates are used in place of or in addition to a driveway gate and are 100% effective when installed properly and maintained.

Types of deer gratesSteel reinforced concrete deer grates are not to be confused with cattle grates and cannot be walked over by deer.
The side and cross spacing is rounded to a point and too thin for deer to walk over.
