No less than 1200 metres of railing were produced for the project. This was used to replace the old railings on the seven viaducts where N-roads cross over the A28. The Directorate-General for Public Works and Water Management wanted the new railing to be a CE-certified product that would last for decades. Steel Safety Railing was therefore the perfect solution for the project because the railing is hot-dip galvanised in accordance with NEN-EN-ISO 1461.
The selection of a Dutch supplier was the ideal choice for the contractor: Steel Constructions designs and produces the railing itself and this permits maximum flexibility. If it is damaged, the railing can be replaced quite easily. In any case, Steel Safety Railing is easy to install due to the generous centre-to-centre distance between the posts (3 metres).
Compared with the old railing, Steel Safety Railing takes a considerable step forward. The railing was supplied with mesh which has made the viaducts so much safer. This will ensure that it is not possible to climb over the railing. Another feature worth noting is the attractive blue duplex coating which makes the new railing not just safe but also a pleasure to look at.
