Steel-Backed Timber Guardrail

The system consists of a wood rail backed with a steel plate and supported on timber posts. The steel plate provides the needed tensile strength to the system. The wood members provide a more rustic apperance than the steel and concrete normally used in barriers. This railing is often specified for use along roads under the jurisdiction of the National Park Service.
