High Tension Cable Barriers
Cable barriers offer a cost effective solution to median and shoulder applications. Several DOT-approved models are available.
In addition to the guardrail panels themselves, end terminals, anchor assemblies and crash cushions are integral to overall highway/roadway safety. Positioned at the terminating point of guard rail barriers, these components are designed to absorb a vehicular impact, thereby helping to reduce potential damage and injury. All of the guardrail, end terminals, anchor assemblies, crash cushions and hardware we sell adhere to the standards set by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO).
Energy absorbing crash cushions offer protection for fixed objects in many applications. They are available in both reusable and interchangeable models.
C&W offers several wood and steel posts, gating and non-gating end terminal systems; all of which are NCHRP350 compliant.
Steel Backed Timber Guard Rail
SBTG Federal Highway Standard 617-60 Barrier System is NCRP350 compliant and offers a more rustic design while maintaining superior safety characteristics.
Thrie Beam Median Barrier
The 12-gauge galvanized thrie beam barrier comes in sturdy 12’6” L x 20” H panels. Thrie beam is basically the combination of two w-beams into one unit, which expands the overall area of protection. This guardrail has been very effective for safety on high speed, high-traffic roads, with its increased size being particularly useful when it comes to handling larger vehicles. As such, thrie beam is often used both at the median and on the sides of roadways.
Thrie Beam Barrier is generally used for freeway or highway median applications and can be installed with either wood or steel posts.
W-Beam Guard Rail
Our 12-gauge galvanized metal beam (w-beam) guardrail is available in 12’6” L x 12 ¼” H or 25’ Long panels. Due to its economical nature and time-tested ability to mitigate crash damage, metal beam guard rail is very prevalent on freeways/highways and other major roads. Getting its name from the sleek w-shape design, this durable steel rail can be successfully installed on a variety of commonly-used posts.
W-Beam is available in two types:
- Type 1: Pre-galvanized
- Type 2: Galvanized after fabrication
Both meet ASHTO M180 specifications.
Midwest Guardrail System
The Midwest Guardrail System road barrier was created in response to changes in motor vehicle design that reduced the effectiveness of traditional w-beam guardrail. To properly accommodate vehicles operating with a higher center of gravity, the Midwest Guardrail System has an increased rail height of 31”, a blockout of 8”, and splicing done between the guardrail posts. Ultimately, the Midwest Guardrail System provides improved highway safety without drastically inflating the cost.
Corten guardrail is weathered steel guardrail that has a visually appealing brown/rusted color. This rail is often used at parks and other natural areas as it fits in quite well in those particular environments. If your project calls for guard rail that won’t detract from, or starkly contrast with, the existing scenery, Corten is definitely worth consideration.
Radius guardrail is used on areas of highways, rural roads and other roadways that are curved either concavely or convexly. This critical type of rail, which can have a radius ranging from 5 to 150 feet, creates a protective barrier as vehicles wind their way around the road. Our radiused guardrail is incredibly reliable, and can be curved in-house if the radius is between 30 and 150 feet.
Our W-Beam to Thrie Beam transition panels are used to securely connect the guardrail to bridge railing or other concrete barriers or walls. Along with the other types of guardrail we sell, the transition rail is carefully designed to help maximize highway safety and mitigate any potential vehicular crash damage.
