Discuss W-Beam Guardrail and Thrie-Beam Guardrail:
For generations, the workhorse of America’s roadside safety barrier system has been the W-beam highway guardrail used with the strong post system. However, in many applications the use of a wider 20 inch Thrie-beam system has been applied. The average motorist may have referred to Thrie-beam highway guardrail as ‘three-wave’ guardrail. (Or, perhaps the ‘triple-humped’ or ‘three corrugated’ type highway guardrail panel).
Both the W-beam and Thrie-beam Guardrail systems used on America’s roadways provide safety. Our safety concerns are for motorists and goods and services which depend on our national transportation system. The modified block-out version Thrie-beam system has proven to be effective in redirecting heavier vehicles and/or vehicles with a higher center of gravity.
This video compares the installations, components, hardware and performances of the two systems: W-beam guardrail and Thrie-Beam (20 inch) guardrail.
