Metal Guardrail: Our Most Reliable Safety Guardian
Guardrails, or railings, or protective guarding, may be one of the most overlooked things in everyday life. However, when you mention the “guardrail”, you will suddenly recall the scene passed by. It turns out that the guardrail has been silently guarding us all the time and can be seen everywhere in life.
Guardrails are a boundary to prevent access to dangerous or off-limits areas while allowing visibility in a greater way than a fence. Many public spaces are fitted with guardrails as a means of protection against accidental falls, or to protect pedestrians from roadside hazards or to guide vehicles back to the roadway and away from potentially hazardous situations.
When we choose the guardrail, metal guardrail will be the first priority for various dangerous places such as highways, construction sites, city streets, balconies, staircases, etc., thanks to its durability, firmness, corrosion resistance. It is our most reliable safeguard which can protect us to the highest extent.
Category and Application of Metal Guardrail
Metal guardrail refers to the general name of the guardrail made of metal material, including iron guardrail, zinc steel guardrail, stainless steel guardrail, cast iron guardrail, aluminum alloy guardrail, etc.
Stainless steel guardrail is most widely used in the field of guardrails due to their corrosion resistance and anti-rust performance.
The aluminum guardrail is now used by more and more customers, with the characteristics of convenient production and installation, variety and specifications, safety and environmental protection.
The cast iron guardrail is not smooth and relatively fragile compared with other metal guardrails.
Most of the wrought iron guardrails use 40MM wrought iron square tubes. The four corners of the square tube have uneven wavy patterns, and the produced guardrail products are more beautiful.
The Zinc steel guardrail is mainly made of galvanized pipe. Since the material itself is a zinc alloy material, the zinc steel guardrail does not need to be hot-dip galvanized. The production is also different from the wrought iron guardrail, the wrought iron guardrail is welded, and the zinc steel guardrail is mostly perforated, and some are welded links.
According to the use purposes, the guardrail can be divided into highway guardrails, street guardrails, municipal guardrails, landscape guardrails, stair railings, balcony guardrails, etc., which are widely used in villas, schools, hotels, entertainment venues, transportation, highways, etc.
Advantages of Metal Laser Cutting Machine in Metal Guardrail Fabrication
Laser cutting technology is a large-scale, high-efficiency, high-quality cutting production method for the metal guardrail. In the guardrail industry, it is often necessary to perform various forms of cutting, punching and welding on various square pipes or round pipes or flat sheets. In order to further increase the cutting and punching efficiency of metal pipes and sheets, improve the processing quality and reduce material waste, the metal laser cutting machine has become the “weapon” for all metal guardrail fabricators for the following advantages.
Metal laser cutting machine provides unparalleled precision for the production of metal guardrails that must be cut to high dimensional accuracy, because the laser light used does not have any physical presence and makes no contact with the material. It can also compensate for inaccuracies in the machining process such as metal deformation. The laser can be adjusted according to these deformations
Metal laser cutting machines can be used to process a wide range of metal such as carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum, galvanized steel, alloy steel, etc. For graphics cutting, it can make almost any patterns and shapes on metal sheets and tubes. The shape of the template is designed by computer programming and can be quickly changed to provide customers with personalized processing. Even at the last minute, the operator can modify the design without affecting the production process of the entire product
Metal laser cutting machine is easy to operate and user-friendly. Since laser cutting machines can be fully CNC controlled, they can repeatedly and consistently produce complex and intricate sheet and pipe guardrails to high tolerances.
The non-contact nature of the metal laser cutting machine decreases the risk of mechanical distortion, especially for flexible or thin materials, as well as decreases the risk of material contamination
Minimal heat affection
The Metal laser cutting machine offers minimal thermal input, with fine control over work area temperature.
Maximum material usage
The focused beam allows for narrower kerf widths. The smaller kerf minimizes the amount of material removed, thus more material utilization.
Fast and high adaptability
The speed of the metal laser cutting machine is also high. Its max. idle speed can reach 120m/min, which greatly improves the production efficiency of the guardrail fabrication.
Greater operator safety
Metal laser cutting machine decreases the risk of operator injury and provides quieter operations.
