Yes we fabricate OPSD 980.101 Ontario Provincial Standard Pedestrian rail. They are made from 48mm OD Steel Pipe and Hot Dip Galvanized. The standard drawing is available in our railing section.
In contrast to a parapet wall, which is a low retaining wall, a parapet wall railing is a fence or barrier consisting of one or more horizontal rails and vertical supports.
For the OPSD 980.101 railing the height is 900mm off the level surface. If you are using a different standard/design of rail feel free to contact us and we can help find the required height for your project.
Hot formed posts are produced using a furnace for heating the raw material and formed while hot. These posts are used on highways with posted limits 100 km/hr.
Cold rolled posts are formed in a cold progressive system. These posts are used in all municipalities in Ontario as the standard sign post.
In our Product/Guide Rail section we have included a couple of drawings to show you how to site measure for your radiused guide rail requirements. You can also phone us and ask our estimator any questions on how to use this tool.
Each section of guide rail requires 2 posts with the 3rd post overlapping the next section of guide rail. As an example: If you require a run of 100ft of guide rail, you will require 8 lengths of guide rail x 2 posts each = 16 posts and 1 for each end = 18 posts.
We do not fabricate anything with stainless steel and we are not CWB certified in this category. If you need something we would be happy to direct you to some great suppliers in this category.
The steel for both of these Categories is Grade 350WT Class C or ASTM A500 Grade B or C. The difference is in the test temperature for the Charpy V-Notch Impact test. For Category 1 Steel the test temperature is -10 C for Category 2 Steel it is -20 C.
Yes, we contract a MTO Approved Conformance Engineer to come to our yard to complete the Quality Verification Engineer Inspections on the fabricated and galvanized product, when required by the contract.
Yes. We have a 28ft flatbed truck that delivers material to the jobsite. If your project is longer than our flatbed can bring, then we will find a contract carrier to bring your material to site.
