SEABC Taskforce on Guardrails – Design Practice and Construction Issues

Date: July 27, 2011

Presenter: Robert Jirava, P.Eng., Struct. Eng., RDJ Structural Designs Ltd.

For many years guards (guardrails) have had problems to achieve code compliance. Problems have typically ranged from lack of proper design to poor construction, and lack of coordination or understanding of responsibilities between the various design and construction professionals involved. Issues frequently exist with aluminum railings, glass guards, and connection of guardrail members to the supporting base building structure.

This seminar outlined the issues identified by the SEABC Taskforce on Guardrails, and present practical and effective solutions for some of these issues.
