Galvanized guardrails, while great for safety, can be unattractive especially in scenic areas. On the La Sal Mountain Loop project the Federal Highway Administration used Natina Steel to create a natural looking guardrail system that compliments the area's natural beauty. The rock wall, which was originally filled with light gray rock that contrasted harshly with the surrounding landscapes, was also enhanced using Natina Rock Formula which quickly oxidizes the surface of rock and creates beautiful earth-tone brown colors that do not fade from sun exposure over time.
