No. 1 European trademark of aluminum guardrails and gates

A long-term experience

HORIZAL was created in 1969 and is installed in the RhôneAlpes region nearby Lyon. Right from the beginning, the HORIZAL Company specialised in the manufacturing of aluminum guardrails and rapidly became the European leader in this type of product both for new and renovated construction.

A world recognized product

Its main assets reside in the technical design of its fasteners and its assembling links. These elements made of aluminum cast parts make it extremely easy to implement and feature a highly ranked design. More than 30 countries throughout the world are successfully marketing the HORIZAL technique.

Partner of metal workers

HORIZAL guardrails are usually delivered ready to install thanks to a specific software which optimizes sections, number of fasteners, as well as intermediate rails and filler panels used. This technical assistance contributes to guarantee metal workers and locksmiths a state-of-the-art product which conforms to safety standards in force.

An aluminum gate specialist

Benefiting from its wide experience in the design of aluminum guardrails, HORIZAL also proposes a complete line of aluminum gates in all styles, fences and swimming pool barriers. This line is marketed by its professionals network under the registered trademark “Les Portaliers ®” (Gatemakers).


To satisfy safety requirements, the design of HORIZAL products undergo a tensile strength test procedure conducted in an integrated test center.
Quality control begins with the reception of raw materials and goes on through each production phase. Suitable packaging techniques preserve the quality of the products until they are implemented.
HORIZAL technology and design contribute to the success of today’s architectures, from the most classical to the most innovative. In addition, the qualities of a know-how capable of mixing computerized production and manual talents open the way to the most customized achievements.
Finally, quality is based on workshop flexibility, which allows HORIZAL to keep up with orders and respect its commitments.
So, based on a rough sketch and request for proposal data, HORIZAL can within very short delays :
. work out a budgetary estimate,
. draft a functional drawing in compliance with standards,
. modify a drawing,
. make a sample …
. draw up execution plans.
To make implementation easier, this state-of-the-art computerization enables HORIZAL to provide its customers with a layout drawing showing the prefabricated elements required to install the guardrail on the worksite.

From the “request for proposals” phase up to the actual worksite, HORIZAL information processing capability proves to be a staunch support for a conquering partnership.
