Water for Barrier Filling
Water Barrier Filling
One of the most dangerous areas for construction people to work
When empty, barriers are lightweight and easily deployed, typically 35 kilos. Filled with water, you can multiply the weight by up to ten which makes the barrier a formidable method of protecting those inside the work area.
In the case of a collision from a vehicle, up to 40mph, the barrier will absorb energy from the collision, slowing 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 and to shepherd 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.
Our vehicles are chapter 8 approved and therefore suitable for highway and motorway work.
