METAL BEAM CRASH BARRIERS
Partners in National Highway safety WHY GUARDRAILS ?
The economics, versatility, and performance of Guardrail surpass all other roadside barrier systems. Guardrail provides highly-visible protection in all weather conditions helping to increase driver confidence. The Guardrail system absorbs the impact of out-of-control vehicles while guiding the vehicle to safer stops. Proven results and consistent material quality make steel Guardrail systems the right barrier choice.
- - Low initial material costs.
- - Straightforward installation and uncomplicated repairs. When repairs are required, only damaged rail or posts need to be replaced. the remaining section of Guardrail still provides effective protection.
- - Routine maintenance is not required. Adjustment or tightening is not necessary during the service life of the barrier.
- - Systems can have a service life of 30 years or longer.
- - Applications include parking lots, single and multi-lane highways, bridges and bridge approaches.
- - Guardrail systems can be tailored to any application.
- - Shop-manufactured rail can be radiuses to convex and concave curves.
- - Rail systems can be designed with wood or steel posts and offset blocks.
- - Numerous end treatments are available to meet all design requirements and standards.
- - Post to rail ratios can be varied to meet safety requirements.
- - Rail thickness is available in 2.67mm/3.0mm/3.43mm.
- - Standard lengths are 4128mm or 4318mm. Custom lengths are available.
Application of Guardrails
- - Minimizes accident severity and injuries when collision occur.
- - Guides vehicle away from the hazard by the "ribbon effect" of the continuous guardrail during vehicle impact.
- - Thrie Beam guardrail provides an enhanced performance because of its larger face, which provides reduced defection and improved resistance to vehicles overturning.
- - Meets AASHTO designation M180 specifications. All hardware and components are galvanized to 550gms/sqm as per MOST / AASHTO requirements
- - National Highways, Expressways, Bridges and Flyovers.
- - High embankments / Sharp curves and Banks.
- - Mines, collieries, etc. where continuous movement of vehicles is envisaged.
- - High density fast moving traffic areas in cities.
- - Village areas along highways.
- - Motor racing / Test drove tracks.
- - Crash test sites
- - Factory areas.
- - Traffic safety in Airports.
- - Plants handling hazardous chemicals.
- - Multi-Story parking lots.
