Types of Guard Rail
Guardrails are used for safety and barrier purposes and are an integral part of various industrial structures. These assemblies can be installed at platform ends and are incorporated within mezzanine structures in industrial sites, such as warehouses. They are used on highways as a protection barrier against vehicle impact, to prevent falls, and in production areas. Standard guardrail are constructed from high strength galvanized steel, a material recommended because of its durability. Wooden guardrails are another common barrier material. Asheville Fence carries both types.
In traffic engineering, highway guardrail may prevent an errant vehicle from hitting roadside obstacles which may be either man-made (sign structures, culvert inlets, utility poles) or natural (trees, rock croppings), running off the road and going down a steep embankment, or veering off the roadway into oncoming traffic (commonly referred to as a median barrier). Roadside obstacles are typically referred to as fixed objects. A secondary objective is keeping the vehicle upright while deflected along the guardrail. Variables such as motorist speed and vehicle orientation when striking the guardrail are crucial factors in the effectiveness of guardrail performance.
Guardrails are used in a facility setting to protect a company’s greatest assets which include their people and expensive equipment.
In the US, under OSHA Standards dictate that employees who work on surfaces that are 4 feet (1.2 m) or higher off of the ground must have personal fall protection systems in place, such as handrails or guardrails.
The strongest options are of industrial strength steel. They will be mounted using a base-plate or cored into cement to enhance the strength.
What Our Customers Say
My wife and I are very pleased with our experience of purchasing our privacy fence from Asheville Fence. From Scott's sales call and estimate to the excellent job that Gabriel, Whit and Cody did at our house. The work site was neat and tidy and they were all very professional, polite, friendly, and answered all my questions. Will highly recommend for all to consider when looking for fencing. Thanks again all!
We could not be more pleased with our new fence and every interaction we have had with the wonderful folks at Asheville Fence. Austin, the Sales/Project Manager, was very knowledgeable and patient with our questions. He understood that the fence was not only a "big" purchase for us, but one that would be in place for decades. Because of this, he took the time to consult with us more than once on the possible variations our fence line could take.
Thanks for the job well by the fence team of Jeremiah, Ricky and Colby. They were very polite, knew exactly what they were doing and wasted no time in doing their job. They make a fantastic team and they really enjoy working together. They like to work which is a rare thing to see in a lot of businesses.
500+ ft chain link fence installation went really well. Team that came out had it up in three days. Fence is strong and would get them to build another.
The workers from Asheville Fence did a fantastic job on our replacement fence. Our yard is uneven but we wanted the fence to be level. We explained that we would come back afterward with additional dirt to fill the voids, and they installed the fence exactly the way we wanted. We could not be more happy with the results!
My personal experience with Asheville Fence would get a SIX STARS if there was one! Please, do yourself a favor and give them a chance to fulfill your fencing needs. You will not be disappointed!
Great people and high quality work. If you go with someone else you'll be disappointed.
In this day and time you don't find many companies that treat your project like it's something taking place at their own home or business. I love the fact that the owners are still personally working in the business and are available to speak with.Thank you for quality work and awesome customer service!!
