This creative guard rail was formed by combining two horizontal rails and full-mortised 8 inch square posts with Concord tops and skirt moldings. This diverse use of functional materials adds sophistication to the roadway of this upscale complex.
The combination of a 4 inch x10 inch rail face-mounted to an 8 inch square post with chamfered top –the traditional timber guard rail– is suitable for a vehicular barrier.
The strength and beauty of this full-mortised guard rail system, constructed of Pressure Treated timbers, gives the protection required for the steep grade adjacent to this driveway. It is the logical choice for this residential setting.
