Water Filled Barriers
Providing Bulk Water for Water Filled Barriers
Water filled barriers are a solution for construction workers working in dangerous environments. This often involves fast-moving traffic, in particular motorways and highways. This is where water filled barriers come into play.
Short and medium-term projects especially can benefit greatly from the use of water filled barriers. The procedure is simple. Book a Tardis tanker with capacity for the amount of water you need. Our tankers start at 16,000 litres and go up to 30,000 litres capacity. If you are unsure what you require, talk to one of our sales team and they can advise you further.
Water Filling Barriers- Durable and Lightweight
When empty, the water filing barriers are lightweight (usually 35 kilos) and are easily deployed. When filled with water, you can multiply the weight by up to ten. This makes the barrier a formidable method of protecting those inside the work area.
Purpose of a Water Filling Barrier
In the case of a collision from a vehicle of up to 40mph, the barrier will absorb energy from the collision. In conjunction with speed restrictions on the road, this slows the vehicle down and preventing it from entering the work area.
The barriers are also used to line a roadside when there is a trench the other side. It guides vehicles in a particular direction.
When the project is finished, you send for us to come empty the barriers so they can be removed from service. Disposal of the water is done through authorised and licensed disposal facilities.
