Steel Guardrail / Safety Barrier / Crash Barrier
W-beam guardrails are installed in order to prevent out of control vehicles from running of the road and hitting roadside objects. These crash barriers help minimize injuries and fatalities on roads all over the world by providing a flexible barrier to hit, effectively slowing the vehicle and hopefully preventing catastrophic damage. These beam barriers are often installed due to their durability and low cost.

Applications of Steel W-Beam Guardrail
Our steel crash barriers are commonly installed besides motorways and secondary roads to protect drivers in the case of crashes and to prevent vehicles from entering unauthorized areas.
1. Parking Lot
Our two-wave guardrail offers highly effetive shielding in parking lots to guard vehicles from hazards such as light poles, buildings, ditches, etc. With special end treatments, our guardrails are ideal for areas with heavy pedestrain traffic.
2. Bridges and Embankments
W-beam guardrail for bridges and embankments provide a potentially lifesaving shield for people and prevent accidental falls into dangerous areas below bridges (rivers, railroad tracks, other roads, etc.)
3. Parks and Recreation Areas
Guardrails can be used to demarcate parks and recreational areas, protecting property and wildlife. They can be installed alongside cliffs and other potentially dangerous areas to prevent accidents as well.
