Highways and Secondary Roads
When installed on interstates,
highways and secondary roads, guard rail shields vehicles from
natural and man-made roadside hazards that can't be removed
such as trees, ditches, utility poles, signs, etc.
When installed across and at the ends of bridges,
guard rail provides a lifesaving shield from the bridge and
the area below (rivers, railroad tracks, other roads, etc.
Guard rail offers highly effective shielding in
parking lots against such vehicle hazards as light poles,
buildings, ditches, etc. Guard rail also provides added
security against auto theft where fences have failed.
most situations, we recommend the use of W-Beam guard rail,
the optimal choice for safety, strength, durability, and cost
Constructed of high-strength 12 gauge (Class A) or 10 gauge
(Class B) steel and coated in rust-resistant zinc, W-Beam
guard rail is available in standard 25' and 12' 6"
lengths. Other lengths can be fabricated upon request.
Standard center punching is 12' 6" O.C., 6' 3" O.C.,
and 3' 3-1/2" O.C. with other options available.
