The structural guard rail is an indoor/outdoor rail used to protect both people and equipment. These portable C-channel rails are eight pounds per foot and can be set up and taken down in a matter of moments. This type of guard rail is also good for long term construction projects or renovations where you may have open pits, manholes, or other "long-term temporary" falling hazards you wish to protect.
These rails can also be used to block access to areas where temporary overhead hazards are located, but unseen to passersby. Prices on this type of guard rail start at $50, and the guard rail can be used again and again. This is an investment with definite long-term benefits in terms of safety and versatility,
