Guard Rail

Highway Guard Rail is a life saving device for the people traveling on Highways / Expressways. This highway crash barrier system saves thousands of life facing accident on road. The Highway Guard Rail works as most dependable life saving protective device in hill roads and at sharp bends which is difficult to negotiate.

Each piece of Guard Rail has two basic shapes
  • W-beam Guard rail has two “humps” and one “valley”. The “Humps” i.e. the convex surface faces towards the traffic. The “Valley” i.e. the concave surface faces away from the lane.
  • T-beam has three “Humps” and two “Valleys”

Features & applications

Used at the Highway
  • To provide protection to motor vehicles at dangerous road –
    • Steep slope
    • Obscure Curve / Bend
    • High embankment
    • Sharp corner
  • To act as directional railing for the vehicles moving in the right direction.
  • To act as Median Barrier to protect from head on collision.
  • To act as protective barrier for pedestrian along the Highway.
  • To absolve impact during collision thus minimize injury to passenger and damage to the vehicle.
  • This barrier act as a guide to the drivers during bad weather and at the nights.
