highway rail

1, Strictly manufactured to the state road authority specifications

2, Compliant to the Road Safety Barrier Systems

3, Zinc coating thickness: 85 um, compliant to ASTM A123

4, Can produce as per clients’ drawings

5, Optimal choice for safety, strength, durability, and cost effectiveness


Highway rail are mainly used for separating and defining aisle ways, large work areas, walkways and inside loading docks. Guard rail provides a visual and physical barrier between traffic and work areas. It is of protection against accidents due to lift trucks or other mobile equipment in dock areas, aisles, around special equipment, or offices. Using of galvanized rails reduces costly damage to equipment and inventory. If any need, it is easy to expand or move modular system. It is suitable for indoor or outdoor use as well.

Highway rail is also for highway safety. Metal guard rail is fixed on the side of the roads or middle of the road, especially on curves and slopes for preventing vehicles from riding out from roads. The w beam barrier are of excellent anti-corrosion and tensile strength. So that, it is good to minimize the damage to driver and pedestrian.

It’s often need to remove guardrail temporarily for unobstructed maintenance or other access to an area. Layout flexibility and the ability to relocate barriers at minimal cost is an important factor.

Highway Rail Parameters

Huiliyou safety highway rail provides a substantial highly visual physical barrier that addressed all of these issues.

Four types and two classes of highway rail is provided follows:

 I—Zinc coated, 550g/m2 minimum single-spot.
II-Zinc coated, 1100g/m2 minimum single-spot.
Ⅲ-Highway rail of painting.
Ⅳ-Highway rail of corrosion resistant steel.
Class A: Base metal nominal thickness—2.67 mm.
Class B: Base metal nominal thickness—3.43 mm.

Road Guard Rail Coating Requirements

Type I and Type II beams:
The highway rail may be galvanized before after fabrication.
The mass of coating shall conform to the requirements in the following table for the types specified. The mass of coating is the total amount of galvanizing on both sides of a sheet or beam, expressed as g/m2 (& oz/ft2) of sheet.
