Quick Installation and Minimal Disruption.

Direct from the Manufacturer with HOPKINS quick fit cattle and deer grids. Traditional grids take up to 2-3 days to install. The HOPKINS grid can be installed in 3 hours! THERE IS NO COMPARISON, no tedious putting sections together,our customers are truly outstanded by how quick they can use the grid!

We do not install the grids ourselves due to the simplicity and little time needed to install one of our grids. It is not viable to offer installation as by the time we transport machinery to site a local contractor / civil engineer would be far more cost effective.

Over the 30 plus years we have been in business we have many contractors all over the UK who regularly install our grids. If you are unable to locate a contractor we are more than happy to source one for you.

Transport arrives on site. The grid frame is off-loaded and carefully lowered into the pit. The grid sections are then placed on top of the grid frame and are retained in position by a steel angle upstand, which is an integral part of the grid frame. The wing panels can then be fitted in slots provided, thereafter the area around the grid frame is back filled with hardcore and consolidated.
