The T-18 Log Rail element is constructed from Douglas Fir log (18 mm diameter), combining the natural beauty of wood with the strength of steel, to produce an aesthetic appealing road traffic barrier system.
Revered as the industry leader in mixed wood and steel guardrail systems, more than 1500km of T-18 Log Rail have been installed worldwide.
T-18 Log Rail provides vehicle containment and re-direction through a steel U-channel which is factory-fitted into the rear of the log.
A specially engineered fishplate (using only 3 bolts to secure the rails to the supporting posts) is used to splice the rail elements.
The supporting posts of the barrier system consist of a steel C-section that is driven directly into the ground and fitted with timber cladding (18 mm diameter).
All the components comprising the T-18 Log Rail road barrier system effectively work together, to provide the necessary tensile strength required for safe vehicle re-direction and containment.
