SILENCER TURRET GATE & FZA SYSTEM - (Flight Zone Avoidance System) 


Less People, Less Stress, Added Safety 

The Turret Gate is an advanced gate design that shuttles back through the centre Turret, repositioning behind waiting animals. It eliminates the need to swing the gate back open into waiting animals and virtually eliminates the need for humans to be in with the cattle. The gate is controlled remotely and significantly reduces the stress on animals. The Turret can swing forward and back and at the same time shuttle. Turret gate helps keep your cattle calm and your people safe.


Closing a gate at the back of a forcing yard places staff in the high impact zone where many serious staff injuries occur. As animals are pressured into smaller pen size, their stress increases, which can result in both animal and staff injuries. The practice of swinging a gate back into oncoming cattle sends a mixed message, which creates further stress. The Turret gate virtually eliminates contact with animals in this high impact area with the use of its 320-degree operational swing and shuttle feature. The remote control enables the user to operate the Gate from up to 30 metres away. The Turret Gate operates off low pressure with hydraulic pressure release set so cattle cannot be crushed or injured. 

Less Labour Required  

The Turret Gate is very easy to use and does not require experience or skill to operate. The automated movement lowers the stress on cattle by eliminating human contact in potential high-impact areas. Less staff is required and staff are safe. 

Reduces Stress on Animals 

Automated animal movement lowers animal stress, increasing their safety, and virtually eliminates human contact with animals in potential high-impact areas. Humans are able to stay outside the animal’s flight zone while the animals flow through the Turret Gate without added pressure or the use of electric jiggers. The remote control helps create this no-stress area for animals and humans. 

Easy to Install and Use  

The Turret Gate (including anchoring) is easily installed and up and running in no time.
