Key Considerations When Purchasing Road Barriers

09 Jun

When it comes to road travel, we often encounter various objects along the way. One such object is the road barrier. In practical terms, these barriers are used to secure residential properties, gardens, and facilitate traffic management. Individuals also purchase road barriers for a wide range of purposes. But do you know what factors to consider when buying road barriers? We have taken the initiative to outline the essential aspects that should be kept in mind.

1. Choice of Raw Material:

Road barriers are typically manufactured using polyethylene as the primary raw material. This material offers flexibility and enhances the longevity of the barriers. Being lightweight, these barriers are easily portable and can be reused multiple times. Moreover, the use of polyethylene allows for efficient mass production, resulting in cost-effective barriers. With their affordable price tag, these barriers can be utilized in various applications.

2. Color Variety:

All manufactured barriers should comply with standardized measurements and colors for road usage. As a result, these barriers can cater to specific needs such as roundabouts, divided highways, and narrowed traffic lanes. They can be quickly deployed in practical terms. Furthermore, they find extensive application in public spaces, including municipal traffic control units, highway maintenance teams, and police checkpoints.

Road barriers represent innovative and practical solutions. They ensure the smooth flow of both vehicular and pedestrian traffic, enhancing overall safety. They are also commonly employed in construction sites for individual requirements. By effectively dividing traffic lanes and creating secure pedestrian crossings, safety barriers serve a crucial purpose. Additionally, road barriers can be produced in a wide range of colors. Opting for road barriers in noticeable traffic colors facilitates easy visibility for drivers and pedestrians alike. By promoting safer traffic conditions, these barriers offer versatile utilization in various contexts.

3. How Resistant is it to Impact?

Road barriers are often subjected to collisions in traffic. The crucial factor is not only the barrier's ability to remain intact during an accident but also to ensure the safety of lives and properties. To address this, these barriers are filled with sand or water. However, barriers made from polyethylene exhibit a flexible structure. Apart from their impact resistance, they are also highly durable against severe weather conditions and adverse environmental factors.

4. Does it Have a Reservoir?

All manufactured barriers are equipped with a reservoir where you can fill them with water or sand. When using these barriers with water, it is essential to leave some empty space at the top to prevent any damage or minimize the impact of freezing weather conditions. The water within the barrier can easily dissipate on its own under varying weather conditions. All barriers are designed in compliance with international road standards. They are interlocked using a locking system. For long-term use in the same location, barriers are filled with water or sand to provide stability. This enables the barrier to remain in place due to its weight. Moreover, filling the barrier with water instead of sand offers practical advantages in terms of easy emptying.

5. Does it Provide Ease of Transportation?

One of the common concerns of individuals purchasing barriers is whether they can be conveniently transported to their desired location. These barriers can be manufactured in a streamlined process and their lightweight nature, along with their interlocking design, allows for safe transportation. Besides post-purchase transportation, these barriers are frequently moved for various applications such as traffic management. Therefore, it is remarkably easy to relocate the barriers from one place to another.

6. Does it Offer Size Variety?

Barriers are typically manufactured in international standard sizes. In this regard, there are two different sizes available for these barriers. The small road barrier has dimensions of 42.5 cm in width, 100 cm in length, and 52.5 cm in height. On the other hand, the large road barrier, referred to as the measures 42.5 cm in width, 150 cm in length, and 52.5 cm in height.

7. Can Reflectors be Attached?

These barriers are designed to be highly visible in traffic due to their colors. Therefore, they can be manufactured in any desired color. Similarly, water tanks and 1-ton water storage tank models, which are different products, can also be produced in any desired color, just like the barriers. In addition, reflective tapes can be applied to the barriers to enhance their visibility at night. By using these tapes, the visibility of the barriers is maximized, even during nighttime conditions.
