Owners who choose to install Guardrail Corral guardrail don’t expect to replace it again. Our heavily galvanized guardrail panel and posts give our guardrail fence owners untold years of future hard-working service. After a simple installation, guardrail fence owners can move on to other things. Wouldn’t it be great if more things in life were that bulletproof? The best time to eliminate costly fence repairs from your future is while upgrading or building new facilities.  Why waste limited time and resources with weaker, short-term products that will require replacement during your lifetime? Guardrail sets the standard in a long lasting fence life.

Fast, Easy Installation

Guardrail Corral’s used highway guardrail panel is uniformly cut and punched for fast, cost-effective installation. People who have used it once often remark about the ease of installation. Guardrail’s performance record is proved by the willingness of our customers to use it again and again.

Guardrail for CorralsCalming to Animals

The wide coverage of used highway guardrail panel has been noted to keep animals calmer – the less they can see, the less reason to be spooked by something outside the corral. Animals remain calmer because their perception of activity of areas beyond the guardrail barrier is significantly reduced. Additionally, we’ve heard several reports of rambunctious animals testing themselves against guardrail. Of course, the guardrail always wins. After one test—that animal usually declines any more battles with guardrail.

Corrugated Strength

Once you install highway guardrail, its power of corrugation comes to life by interlocking the sides of your pens into an integrated fence system. Impacts and/or pressures to the fence system are distributed along the connected lines. One guardrail fence owner had a bull to strike the fence and completely snap a wooden support post, but his guardrail fence remained functional and in place. This allowed him come back later to replace the broken wood post, well after he had finished sorting and shipping his cattle.

Enjoy Well–Maintained Animal Health

Guardrail Corral guardrail panels present an imposing, visible barrier thus increasing an animal’s awareness of their boundaries. When animals are moved through newly-installed guardrail systems, the handlers will often notice an improved, smoother animal traffic-flow. Several have also noticed an overall reduction in common animal impacts with the fencing system.

Night–Time Visibility

Guardrail Corral’s guardrail fence presents a more visible barrier in low light or night-time hours.  The mildly reflective surface of guardrail panel can reduce the impacts for both the animal and the fencing system during low-light conditions. Long term, this translates to: More meat to market for your investment.

Increased Animal Safety 

Guardrail Corral’s used highway guardrail fence means less injury and healthier animals. Even in the reduced cases of animal contact with the highway guardrail panel, the smooth, mildly humped design of guardrail panel provides a gently curved surface, distributing the impact of animal-to-fence contact over a larger surface area of the animal’s body.

 Protecting American People and Property

Most of us know someone who has been injured or even killed while handling cattle. Large livestock animals are powerful, quick and often unpredictable. They can also be protective of territory and offspring. At any moment, handlers may have an urgent need for a barrier that can take an animal’s full fury. Additionally, producers do not need the added risk of escaped cattle causing damage to individuals or property. When considering safety and risk management, many producers are turning to the lasting qualities of used highway guardrail to protect the irreplaceable.
