traffic barrier, traffic barriers, barrier, barriers, barrier barricades, barrier barricade, jersey style barrier, concrete barrier, plastic barrierA traffic barrier barricades vehicles so that if a vehicle gets off course, it protects the other vehicles from this vehicle.  You may find a barrier between a highway, or just in your local town because of a big road project.

Traffic barriers can be concrete, plastic, filled with water or filled with sand.  One type of traffic barrier is called a ‘jersey style’ barrier, presumably because they were commonly used in jersey.  They are designed with many specs for tests in mind so many reach all specs necessary.

traffic barrier, traffic barriers, jersey style barriers, jersey style barrier, plastic barriers, concrete barriersA traffic barrier is used to block traffic in an intermediary between traffic going different ways.  Traffic barriers can be plastic or concrete and the plastic ones are usually filled with sand or water.  There are many different specs when it comes to traffic barriers, so make sure you find out what is required for the job.

A traffic barrier is not the same as a traffic barricade, or a type III barricade.  Traffic barricades are usually used on local roads, instead of highways like the traffic barrier.  A traffic barricade is also not as heavy duty.

There are a lot of traffic barriers out there that are approved by all sorts of traffic safety standard, but how much do they ‘protect’ a car when you hit it?  I would assume a concrete barrier is not as forgiving as a sand filled plastic one, but I could be wrong.  Many of these barriers are supposed to be designed so that the cars ‘bounce back’…how safe is that?

Type 3 barricades are sometimes set up for road work in towns, but they can also be set up on highways for construction.  They act as a barricade to block off traffic from a certain area.  Traffic barricades range from $20 to $150, depending on the type of reflective sheeting used.

traffic barriers, traffic barrier, orange barrier, orange barriers, barrier barricades, barrier barricade, jersey style barrierWhat exactly are traffic barriers?  Well they are a couple different things, depending on the type of traffic barrier.  There are concrete barriers, plastic barriers filled with sand or water, and other types of barriers.  Plastic barriers are usually recyclable and stack able as well.

Traffic barriers are used to guide vehicles or pedestrians, or to block access to certain areas.  Compared to other traffic control products they command the respect of drivers more because of how they look.  Make sure the traffic barriers you purchase are stack able, because a lot of money can be saved in transportation costs.
