Traffic Drums vs Sand Barrels

traffic drums, traffic drum, traffic barrels, traffic barrel, channelizer, channelizers, traffic channelizer, traffic channelizersSome may confuse traffic drums and sand barrels.  Sand barrels are typically yellow with a black top, and are used as cushions for potential accidents along the freeway.  Traffic drums are smaller and are more of a ‘channelizing’ device to direct traffic but will also provide some protection during an accident.

The drums are orange and typically have orange/white reflective stripes on them.  By shopping around you will notice pricing on the sand barrels are a lot higher than the traffic drums.  This is because they are heavy duty, a lot bigger and can hold sand to make them weigh a lot more.
