Guard rail is one of common and important product to be found on highways, bridges, road, etc to ensure keep the vehicle safe. It is also known as guide rails since it is not designed to prevent a vehicle from going off the road but more intended to steer and "guide" vehicles back onto the road. The idea also allows the guard rail to provide further protection for the pedestrian along the road and prevent head-on collision of car accidents. The guard rail is usually manufactured from a steel fabricator and the main material is made up of hot-dip galvanization to ensure the guard rail have enough strength to withstand vehicle impact force and the zinc in the hot-dip galvanization is also able to reduce any further corrosion. Another possible product includes PVC traffic barrier, precast traffic barrier, etc is also possible for either temporary or permanent guard rail usage. Most of the highway or any standard road guard rail is required to be certified by certain safety standard to implement and as for Malaysia is SIRIM. Not all guard rail is required to be SIRIM approved but the uncertified will only be allowed to use on other purposes such as garden, livestock fence, and etc. Usually finding a guard rail supplier is easy such as Aathaworld as most steel fabricator can produce the guard rail but only required to be certified by SIRIM.

The Guard rail is also mainly produced in a bunch from a fabricator and usually pre-planned will reduce any wastage. Unappropriated guard rail will inflict serious accident such as striking a guardrail with a flat buried end treatment will become airborne. The airborne vehicle will cause more collision damage and possible the driver and others will suffer fatal injuries. The highest specification of guard rail usually is implemented on higher traffic area or where pedestrian happens a lot. Under the circumstance, guard rail can also be made from precast concrete as the cost of production and maintenance is reduce and have more strength to take strong and medium impact. Impact attenuator guard rail can also be put on the starting and end of the guard rail to avoid any possible head-on collision towards a guard rail and prevent fatal accidents. Of course, not all road is required to put on a guard rail unless the roadside conditions pose a greater danger than the guardrail itself.

Other than bolt black and yellow signage is also placed on the beginning or the end of the guard rail to allow a driver to saw it from far away. Yellow provides maximum visibility during the dark so mixing yellow with black signage allow maximum visibility either in day or night. Warning light traffic is also available to be put on a low visibility area especially when you use a temporary barrier such as PVC barrier, precast barrier, light steel barrier.
