Bridge Rails * Open Barrier Systems

Bridge rails or “Open Rails” are permanent rail systems designed for bridges.
Bridge rails or parapets are designed with different crash ratings like steel and concrete barriers.

We at MDS Barriers have “Off the shelf” rail systems ready to take the guess work out of choosing the right rail system.
Off the shelf rails packages offer an inexpensive option as material is readily available.
We at MDS Barriers provide all the layout & shop drawings facilitating the implementation of temporary or permanent barrier systems. 

We can help assist you in determing the best containment system and most often offer a choice between aluminum, steel and new modern composite materials. 

Material options and coatings are important details to take into account. 

It is equally important to ensure that the bridge rail you will specify or will be installing can sustain itself for the life of the bridge or resist the corrosion levels of the environment it will be installed in.

Although we have off the shelf rail systems, we do have customizing and modification of existing rail systems to rehabilitate to ensure the safety of passing pedestrians or vehicles.

Have a look at our rail systems and feel free to contact us for any questions you have. 
Our rail drawings are available, but if you do not see what you are looing for, please call us at 860-289-9033 or email us at
