RHINO-STOP® Sky-Edge Guardrail FAQs

What is the finish of Rhino-Stop® Sky-Edge?

RHINO-STOP®️ Sky-Edge posts and w-beam guardrails are hot dip galvanised. Powder-coating of w-beam guardrails is an optional extra.

How does Rhino-Stop® Sky-Edge function?

RHINO-STOP®️ Sky-Edge w-beam guardrail safety barrier is positioned on the outside edge of a concrete footing and features specially engineered base plates that are designed to yield upon impact and absorb the kinetic energy of the impacting vehicle. This reduces the forces transferred through the anchor bolts and prevents damage to the concrete substrate.

How does Rhino-Stop® Sky-Edge conserve floor space?

By positioning RHINO-STOP®️ Sky-Edge on the outside edge of the concrete footing, there is no encroachment onto the deck space, effectively providing a zero footprint barrier. This allows more deck space to be utilised for parking. The installed position of the w-beam guardrail is vertically aligned with the edge of slab.

How many anchor bolts does each post require?

Each RHINO-STOP®️ Sky-Edge post is anchored with just one (1) M20 anchor with a typical embedment depth of 105mm. Mechanical anchors may be used when the substrate is 200mm thick and 32Mpa. When the substrate is less that 200mm, chemical anchors may be used. Please contact Safe Direction for details of anchors.

What is the spacing between posts?

The maximum spacing between RHINO-STOP®️ Sky Edge posts is 2000mm.

What loading does Rhino-Stop® Sky-Edge comply with?

RHINO-STOP®️ Sky-Edge w-beam guardrail safety barrier complies with the 30kN impact load described for Light Traffic Areas in AS/NZS 1170.1.

What attachments are available with Rhino-Stop® Sky-Edge
