American Timber and Steel is the leading
manufacturer of wood guardrail posts in North America. With stocking
locations across the United States, we stock and supply
more wood posts and blocks than any other
manufacturer. Our state of the art manufacturing
facilities have the ability to provide nearly all post and
block requirements in the United States.
Specifications for posts and blocks vary
from state to state. American Timber and Steel specializes
in meeting those specifications for each individual state.
While we can manufacture our posts out of any species
required, our primary species of Southern Yellow Pine
has the strength and superior treat-ability characteristics
to fit the needs and meet the requirements of almost
every state and
province in North America. We have
the ability to manufacture our posts and blocks with
either a smooth (S4S) surface or a rough sawn surface
to meet your needs. While our CCA treatment meets most state specifications, we can also have our products
treated with ACQ, Creosote, Pentachlorophenol, ACZA,
or nearly any other AWPA, FHWA and state specification
which may be required for your specific requirement.
All of our products comply with the requirements
AASHTO M-133 for wood preservation as well as
meeting AASHTO M-168 for the physical and strength
characteristics. All of our products are
rigorous quality control testing to ensure wood quality
as well as treatment quality before we approve them
for use. American Timber and Steel provides all required
documentations necessary for our
products to be used on highway projects across America.
We also stock a full line of steel guardrail and
the hardware and fasteners you will need for a complete
installation of the guardrail system.
American Timber and Steel is a member of the
Traffic Safety Services Association. We even have our
own full scale pendulum crash test facility to allow us
to analyze our new products for safety and effectiveness.
