As far as I know, the normal pronunciation of 栅 as in 栅栏 is zhà, but there is another pronunciation shān listed in dictionaries. Are both pronunciations in common use?

The Taiwan standard uses zhà for both even in this context.

Apparently, it also has another pronunciation, cè, for certain placenames in Zhongshan, Guangdong.
