The Caudon® Badger Gate has been developed to provide the toughest, most effective and versatile badger gate available on the market.
The all galvanised steel construction will resist the most determined of badgers, creatures that are known to be notoriously destructive. Our experience has shown that wooden badgers gates are easily destroyed by badgers, rendering them ineffective. The durable nature of the Caudon® badger gate also means that it can be used many times for different projects.
Badger gates allow for the licenced closure of badger setts allowing badger populations to be relocated. Gates are fixed over sett entrances and the whole sett area covered with badger proof netting. Initially gates are given a period of opening in both directions to allow badgers to come and go into and from the sett whilst they get used to the gates. Badger gates are then set to only open outwards to allow badgers to exit the sett but not re-enter. Once satisfied that all badgers have left the sett and are relocated to a nearby sett, or an artificially constructed one, the sett is excavated and ground stabilised or reinstated.

The Caudon® badger gate consists of a galvanised steel frame with removeable sliding legs which enable the gate to be positioned accurately and the legs then hammered in to the ground to secure the gate. Multiple wide aperture holes in the gate frame also make fixing to surrounding ground coverings or fence netting an easy process using Caudon Steel Cable Ties.
A two-way swinging gate provides the access aperture for the badgers. This comes with a ‘lock-down’ bar that enables the gate to swing freely in both directions, be fixed in a one-way position, or totally fixed so that it doesn’t open in either direction. The position of the lock down bar has been moved to the bottom of the gate to eliminate gate bounce and the rolled gate edges reduce the potential for clawing the gate open.
