Alpha Rail Optirail Pedestrian Guardrail system is considered to be one of the ultimate in high visibility pedestrian guardrail.
The basic function of pedestrian guardrail is to guide pedestrians to safe crossing points. However, a drawback of using conventional guardrail is that at certain approach angles, the ability for the motorist to see small children or animals approaching can be obscured causing a potential safety risk at crossing points. A similar problem is presented to drivers who are turning right at junctions.
Optirail™ is only available from Alpha Rail and was specifically developed to dramatically improve the inter-visibility of pedestrian guardrail and deliver the optimum in safety and visibility options to the highways planner.
Optirail™ improves visibility by a factor of 3! That is three times the time to see, be seen and take evasive action!
We have also developed a number feature panels and decorative finishes for Optirail™ in order to maintain safety but also be sensitive to the environment. All models are available with sight gap.Tags: Pedestrian Guardrail
