What is a RatGate?

What is a RaGate

What are the benefits?



Only basic tools are required to install a RatGate.



Manufactured in 4" (110mm), 6" (160mm) and 9" (225mm) versions that fit clay, plastic and cast iron drainage pipe.



The RatGate includes a liftable flap mechanism, providing easy access for drain maintenance.



Once the device is installed there is no maintenance required other than a periodic check. 




Made from high grade laser cut stainless steel.



The device is humane, poison free and environmentally friendly.



How the RatGate works


The device opens with the direction of flow, which allows water / waste to pass effortlessly through the device, without allowing rats to push against it and gain access to your property.

The RatGate can be easily installed either by yourself or by a drainage contractor / builder. Watch our instructional video to see for yourself just how simple it is to install.

The RatGate is made using 100% stainless steel and its unique design means it cannot be dislodged accidentally.
