What is WPC Guardrail?

The WPC guardrail is a kind of product that is used to protect people when they are walking on sidewalks, stairs or railings. It can also be used to prevent accidents. It is made of wood-plastic composite (WPC) and can be made into a wide range of shapes. It has a high safety level and is user-friendly. It can be rounded at the corners of the armrests and columns to avoid injuries during an accident. The rounded corners also provide better grip for the hands of the pedestrians. It is a low-carbon, environmental protection product, and its fire resistance is Bf1-S1. It has good impact resistance, and can strongly resist the instantaneous destructive force of an accident.

In addition, the rounded corners of the WPC guardrail have a smooth surface, and can be easily cleaned. The surface of the curved guardrail is not slippery, and it has anti-aging and anti-oxidation properties. It is easy to clean with soapy water, and can be wiped or scrubbed with a soft brush. It can also be sanded and re-polished to renew its appearance. In addition, it can be cleaned with a pressure water jet. Because it is waterproof, it can withstand all types of weather conditions.

WPC is an environmentally friendly material, which contains a large amount of recycled plastic and wood flour. It is a combination of raw materials that are mixed and molded to form various products such as deckings,railings, fences, landscaping timbers,cladding and siding,park benches, etc. It can be used in indoor and outdoor environments, and it is a great alternative to natural timber. It has the advantages of wood and plastic, but has lower maintenance costs than timber. It is not prone to mold, mildew or rot, and it can be easily cut, drilled and nailed. It is resistant to abrasion, UV radiation and insects, making it an ideal material for use in harsh environments.

It can be molded into a variety of shapes, and has a natural wood texture with rich colors. It can be customized to suit customers' needs, and is easy to install. It is a low-maintenance, weather-resistant product, and it is an attractive choice for public spaces. It is available in a wide range of finishes and colors, and it can be combined with different structures to create unique designs.

In the future, guard-post-to-frame connections will be analyzed using dynamic testing to ensure that they can transfer outward forces to the joists without rotation, and that they do not fail due to inertial effects. If these changes are implemented, the new IRC requirements for exterior guardrail posts may be more realistic than the old designs that rely solely on static loads to determine post strength.
