Cable Guardrail / Wire Rope Guardrail / Wire Rope Fencing / Cable Fence
Low cost cable barrier- best choice for open scenic areas
Cable barriers or cable guardrails are flexible highway fencing options for keeping vehicles on the road. The three or four wire barrier systems are mounted on guardrail posts to absorb energy and flexing to cushion unavoidable conditions. Compared to other steel highway guardrails, these systems are cheaper and easily installed.
Why Cable Barriers?
-High flexibility to install and repair
-adjustable cable tension and post spacing
-Effectively prevent vehicles from running off the road
-Maximizes visibility for scenic location installation
-Anti-rust, anti-corrosion and anti-aging
Details about Cables
The barriers are manufactured with 3×7 high tensile strength steel cables. Meanwhile the wire ropes are galvanized for keeping the cable free of corrosion and rusting.
|Material||High tensile steel|
|Surface||Hot dipped galvanized|
|Zinc coating thickness||More than 100 g/m2 as your requirements|
How to Install Cable Barrier?
Cable number: During installation, determine the number of cables according to your requirements firstly. Three or four cables are commonly used.
Generally, more cables add to the strength of the system as a whole.
Space distance: The barrier posts are often installed with spacing from 6.3 to 32.6 ft. Larger spacing usually means higher deflection distance.
Tensioning: Cables are fixed onto the post and tightened to a specific tension in accordance with the local temperature and environment. After tensioning, the deflection will be reduced and the system will become more capable of preventing vehicle runoff. Normally the tensions values range from 2,000lb to 9,000lb.
