Highway guardrails are safety devices manufactured from high strength steel sheets to the typical "W" profile and mounted on "C" Channel post spaced at either two (2) or four (4) meters apart. Such highway safety barriers are installed at edges of roads and highway to prevent vehicles veering off the roads and highways, in median to separate traffic flow, at roundabouts and many parts of a modern highway or expressway. The highway guardrails in Malaysia are manufactured complying to AASHTO M180-89 Standards. The manufacturing process can either employer roll formers or hydraulic press machine to form the corrugated "W" beam steel Highway guardrails and the "C" Channel post.

Hot dip galvanizing is the proven and worldwide accepted corrosion protection process for iron and steel products.
High Strength Steel from the Uncoiler
The leveling machine flattens the steel from the uncoiler
Cutting to length and Holes perforation
The steel sheets are then fed into the roll formers to produce the "W" profile highway guardrail beams

GUARDRAILCO HIGHWAY GUARDRAIL MANUFACTURING PLANT
The highway guardrail manufacturing process employs roll formers for continuous production of guardrail "W" beams. It starts with the uncoiling of high strength steel in coil form through the leveling machine. The flattened steel sheets are then cut into suitable lengths, punched with the necessary holes for splice bolts before being fed into the roll former machine to produce the "W" profile highway guardrail beams.
