Wooden Posts & Blocks
Pressure treated wooden posts & blocks are an attractive, cost-effective alternative to steel posts. Our inventory of wooden posts are specifically designed for highway construction, and are constructed using #1S45 Southern Pine for highly effective impact absorption.
Each Southern Guardrail wooden post is preservative treated in accordance with American Wood Preservers Association (AWPA) Standard C14, ensuring long service life and maximum durability. Our timber posts have been evaluated for minimum knot-associated grain distortion to ensure uniform distribution of impact absorption.
The Strength of Steel
Strict construction standards allow our wooden posts to match the strength and impact characteristics of steel posts. Each timber post meets highway construction standards as defined by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO).
Destructive impact testing confirms that Southern Pine wooden posts & blocks meet or exceed the strength of galvanized steel posts. Timber posts can be routed to meet the dimensions of any existing steel or wooden post.
