  • Top rail to ground height shall be 1.0–1.2 m, mid rail to ground height shall be 0.5–0.6 m. Column square tube spacing should not be greater than 2.0 m.
  • The mid rail should be added when the protection guardrail height is greater than 1.2 m. Rail spacing should not be greater than 0.6 m.
  • The toe board height should not be less than 180 mm.
  • Excavation protection surface should be sprayed with yellow and black (red and white) to show warning.
  • Protection guardrail to excavation edge shall not be less than 500 mm. Preferably spacing is 1.5 m.

  • Column square tube fixed and its connection with the top and mid rails, the overall structure and strength shall withstand the external force of 1 kN in any direction. If there is possible collision of vehicle or objects, rail section should be increased or encryption railing column spacing and the embedding depth should be taken.
