How much weight should a guardrail hold

Guard rail made of steel, 4m long, with B-profile according to RAL-RG 620 standard

According to the RAL-RG 620 quality determination, the guardrail with B-profile is compatible with other guardrails manufactured according to this standard - this means that existing systems can be expanded or improved individually and easily. It measures 4.30 meters in total (4 meters in length when installed) and has pre-drilled holes for standard installation. The industrial barrier is made of sturdy quality steel and is therefore strong against stress, wind and weather! Especially on the company premises, when things get confusing (e.g. in narrow driveways or aisles), the guardrail reliably protects shelves and pallets from forklift trucks such as forklifts and pallet trucks. It is also approved for road traffic and corresponds to the German quality standard (TL-SP 99 and DIN EN 1317). In addition, the industrial plank is also ideally suited as a route guide. You can also find all parts that are necessary for the assembly or extension of our simple crash barrier (ESP for short) with B-profile in our shop. And here are a few figures & data: The material thickness of a crash barrier according to RAL-Rg 620 is 3-4 mm. The height of the plank spar is 31 cm, the depth is 7.5 cm. The upper and lower third in the frontal view are 9.8 cm high, the middle third is 6.1 cm high. There are drip holes at one end of the guardrail and round holes at the other end, both with a hole diameter of 18 mm. Guardrail elements are butt-screwed together: This means that they are connected to each other with an overlap of 30 cm using 6 M16 plank screws at each end of the plank. The 6 holes are arranged in 2 vertical rows of 3 holes each (see article pictures). The distance from hole center to hole center between these two vertical rows of 3 is 220 mm. This is of interest to you if you shorten a crash barrier rail B to a certain desired length (using a flex or cutting torch) and have to recreate the 6 holes for attaching the next crash barrier element. When looking at the plank spar from above, the teardrop-shaped fastening holes should always be on the left and those with a round shape on the right. This avoids edges on which a vehicle could get caught in the event of an impact. Between the 6 holes for attaching the next element there is an oval hole 60 mm long and 18 mm high: this is where the post is attached. TL-SP-99 drawing no.102, TL-SP part no. 2.00.
