Backup Plates

State OH
Description Text
One of our guardrail suppliers asked if it would be
acceptable to use a 12” wide backup plate on the S3x5.7 bridge rail post
instead of the 6” wide.  We already have the 12” wide ones in the
inventory as a standard part…  Any reason to say no (other than the
smaller one should be cheaper)?

I don’t believe that there is any reason one can’t use a larger backup plate. Smaller might be an issue, but larger should be ok.
