Plastic safety barriers encompass a whole range of products suitable for numerous, varied applications.
From lightweight barriers intended to provide a visual separation between works and the public, to heavy duty water-filled barriers for absorbing vehicular impact, all our plastic safety barriers are Chapter 8 compliant, whether they weigh only a few kg or a few hundred.
Plastic barriers are light, even the heaviest water-fill barriers can be easily handled when empty. This makes them easy to transport allowing for many units to be loaded onto a single vehicle, saving on delivery costs. These barriers are mostly made from robust, durable polyethylene, which means they require little maintenance and can withstand adverse weather.
Their portability makes them ideal for situations where the readjustment of barrier systems is needed, as typically, no special equipment is required to move them.
Used together with signs, traffic cones, and temporary fencing, plastic pedestrian barriers help direct people and control the flow of traffic, ensuring risk is kept to a minimum.
