Our Pedestrian Guardrail Range

Founded in 1985, Alpha Rail is recognised as one of the UK’s leading pedestrian guardrail suppliers. All products are manufactured in-house at our production facility which is ideally located close to J28 of the M1 motorway. Our range of pedestrian guardrail and parapet all comply with the requirements of the British Standard BS 7818 Class 2 or 3.

Standing at a height of 1050mm above ground level and set back 450mm from kerb face, the primary purpose of pedestrian guardrail is to guide pedestrians to safe crossing points along busy highways. Pedestrian guardrail is typically set in a 300mm x 300mm x 450mm deep foundation.

We hold large amounts of galvanised standard guardrail in stock for quick delivery nationwide. Full pedestrian guardrail specifications can be viewed on our Technical Drawings section.

After being around since 1985, we consider ourselves to be one of the leading fabricators of architectural metalwork in the UK. If you are looking to specify our products, we would love to share with you all of our technical knowledge gained. These can be found in a number of informative blogs contained within our Resource Hub. We hope you find these of interest and should you require more assistance on any matter, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

About Pedestrian Guardrail

Along with its main function, pedestrian guardrail panels can also be a cheap and effective way in assisting with corporate health and safety. It can be used to denote safe walkways within busy stock yard and warehouse environments where segregating personnel from moving machinery is paramount.

Another marketplace utilising the flexibility of pedestrian guardrail as a cheap and effective barrier is acting as a sports pitch perimeter fence. It is used to segregate spectators from the players and also keep dogs from fouling the playing surface.

In addition to standard products many local authorities prefer to choose decorative pedestrian guardrail for use in town and city centres. We have provided products on many such a project and would love to offer our experience should you be thinking of using something a little different!
