Why BearStopper Is The Better Bearbox

The Door

The door is normally the weakest point of a bear box, so we spent hundreds of hours perfecting our design. Here’s how we make sure our doors never fail:

  • We use a heavy-duty steel construction with a reinforced cross member that ensures the door's durability and ease of operation.

  • The Stainless steel lower door kick plate offers additional door closure protection - you’d be surprised how little space a motivated bear needs to break-in.

  • Our Stainless steel heavy duty door lift-off hinges offer extra strength to the door and protecting it against rust

  • We created a Keyless gravity door latch assembly with an interior emergency escape lever that ensures no one gets stuck inside and trash collectors have an easy time picking up your garbage.

  • The Zinc plated steel slam-latches and stainless steel striker plates provide easy and reliable door closure.

The Box Construction

While other companies use cheaper materials for their bear boxes, our enclosure is constructed with quality metal, so it can endure the most severe weather and wild animal attacks.

  • 14 gauge heavy-duty steel panel construction providing strength and durability.

  • We use interior breather vents for increased airflow. This ensures moisture control inside the bear box. Don’t worry, they’re also rodent resistant!

  • Modular design available in 1-2-3 can unit options enabling future GCE expansion

  • Zinc plated heavy duty durable steel hardware which provides anti-rust protection.

  • Our pitched roof design sheds rain & snow which offers increased weatherproofing.

  • We use a Superior “Polyarmor” oven-baked finish which provides anti-corrosive, UV, and graffiti resistance.

Our Mounting System

We spent considerable time creating a process that makes mounting the BearStopper bear boxes as simple as possible. 

  • We use rebar reinforced, pier-based, concrete pads which provide significant strength post-hole drilled, and our bear box accommodates both concrete and steel pedestal bases.

  • If you decide to order the pedestal, we will make sure to include a pedestal and cradle assembly.
