Low Profile Plastic Jersey Barriers

Low Profile Barriers are used across a variety of settings with several variations available. These water filled jersey barriers work as a great way of keeping unauthorized vehicles out of your work area. Most importantly, our plastic jersey barriers are designed to stand up to inclement weather conditions as well as the typical rough handling common to every demanding work environment.

Unlike concrete barriers, plastic barriers absorb the impact from a vehicle so that those involved in the collision are less likely to be injured. In addition, low-profile barriers can be moved, stacked, and stored easily thanks to their hollow core, which can be filled with water or sand for added weight. Once the water in these water-filled barriers is drained, you can easily transport them between work sites or event venues.

There is no doubt that a solid jersey barrier is essential for preventing fatalities and injuries from collisions at busy and challenging project sites. 

While concrete barriers have been used for decades, businesses prefer plastic low profile barriers over concrete for two major reasons: cost and mobility.

Plastic safety barricades are made from strong and tough High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE), making them much more lightweight than traditional concrete barriers while delivering superior collision resistance at speeds up to 60 mph.

The lighter design makes these barriers more affordable to buy, less expensive to ship, and a perfect fit for airports, warehouses, ports, highways, construction sites, and event venues. 

As water-filled jersey barriers need not be anchored to the ground, they can be reused multiple times, reducing the need for new plastic jersey barriers every few years.

The Many Uses Of Low Profile Barriers

The low profile barrier, or plastic jersey barricade, was developed in the 1950s to reduce vehicle damage during collisions and prevent serious injuries. The PVC barriers are tough, long-lasting highly visible, and suitable for a number of applications in diverse environments.

Low-profile jersey barricades provide better visibility and lead to better compliance from drivers. As a result, these low profile barriers are frequently used to control pedestrian and vehicular traffic on freeways, construction sites, airstrips, events, concerts, and parking lots.

Each plastic jersey barrier is built to a thickness of 8mm to eliminate any possibility of bursts upon filling. With proper care, they won’t crack or break due to a higher degree of resistance to the elements.

Make Safety A Priority In The Workplace

The jersey street barricades conform to the specifications in NCHRP (National Cooperative Highway Research Program) Report 350, “Recommended Procedures for the Safety Performance Evaluation of Highway Features”, and hold the potential to prevent crashes up to 60 mph. All plastic safety barricades feature metal reinforcements on both sides to ensure they can withstand crashes.

Plastic barriers work well for aviation safety, highway maintenance, and managing parking lots.
