W-Beam Steel Guardrail

W-Beam Steel Guardrail is the most frequently used type of guardrail on our nation’s roadway system. It is a roll-formed product that is shaped out of steel coil into the shape of a “W,” and typically galvanized to prevent corrosion and increase the product’s lifecycle. W-Beam Guardrail can be installed on steel strong posts or weak posts, using a variety of different post spacing options, depending on the specific situation (typically 6' 3" spacing.) Some states also specify wood posts for installation.

W-Beam Guardrail can be ordered with the traditional galvanized (gray) coating, Corten (rustic brown) style, or poly-coated in a variety of colors to match your specific aesthetic criteria.

W-Beam Guardrail comes in standard 12' 6" or 25' sections.
