Guardrail Shortage Solved By Manufacturer
“Used highway guardrail panels are becoming harder to find so we’re now manufacturing new rails that are easier to use and consistent in quality,” says Tom Calton of AllRail, Rutherfordton, N.C.
Livestock Steel is a galvanized, rollformed livestock fencing panel. “It’s made to match up seamlessly with the standard used highway guardrails that have been used by livestock producers all over the country,” says Calton. “We had to fi nd a way to support the growing demand.”
The new panels are often cheaper than used W-beam guardrails, especially when delivered in truckload quantity, says Calton. “Livestock Steel panels are exactly the same dimensions as the standard 26-ft. long by 12-in. wide, W-beam used highway guardrails. The mounting and splice holes and post spacing slots are exactly the same. The panels are consistently the same length andare always straight and clean.”
The new panels are made from 15-ga. Steel whereas the older, used highway guardrails are often made from 12-ga. steel. “But the 15-ga. steel is plenty strong for livestock,” says Calton. “We use only top quality galvanized steel and they’re actually made on a highway guardrail manufacturing line.” Calton says the company is still able to provide used highway guardrail for sale. “But by manufacturing our own guardrails, we’re able to provide a good, consistent product in an affordable, unlimited supply.”
New or used guardrail can be drop-shipped direct, or customers can schedule pickup in East or West Coast supply yard locations. Calton says to call for best pricing. Contact: FARM SHOW Followup, David Swain (general manager), All Rail, (ph 877 724-5411; [email protected]; www.livestocksteel.com).
