Jersey Barrier Options

Tuesday, December 11, 2012 By: admin

When it comes to Jersey Barriers, it is important to know a few basic things.  First off, know that most of them are 42″ tall, 24″ wide and 72″ wide.  They can be called traffic barriers, road barricades, construction barriers and more.  There are water fill-able jersey barriers and there are concrete barriers.

We are going to be talking about the water fill-able barriers.  They can be filled with sand or water typically.  Also know that some have kits to make them safe on highways (an iron bar goes horizontally across the barrier) and another option is having a reflective strip.  The stripes are orange/white typically, making the barriers easier to see.

These lighter models are used in instances where a customer would want to save on shipping costs, and/or the customer wants to be able to drain the barrier and transport it to a new location with ease.  If you have other questions about barriers drop me an email and I will do my best to answer!

Before buying a traffic barrier, make sure it is NCHRP-350 approved, meaning it meets the requirements and can take an impact at different levels.  Level 1 is 30MPH, level 2 is 45MPH and level 3 is 62.5MPH.  They are usually used to replace concrete medians, and are set up in long, long sections.
