What does a plastic water-filled barrier do?
A plastic water-filled barrier
is a type of portable barrier that is filled with water to provide weight and stability. They are typically used to:
Control Traffic: Plastic water-filled barriers are used to block off roads, sidewalks, or other areas to control the flow of pedestrian or vehicle traffic, redirecting people or vehicles to safer areas.
Create Barricades: These barriers can be used to create barricades to prevent access to restricted areas, such as construction sites, or to protect workers and equipment.
Secure Perimeters: Plastic water-filled barriers are often used to secure perimeters of events, festivals, or other public gatherings to keep people safe and prevent unauthorized access.
Manage Flooding: In the event of a flood, plastic water-filled barriers can be used to block or divert water flow, protecting homes and businesses from flood damage.
These barriers are durable, portable, and easy to set up, making them a convenient and effective solution for a wide range of safety and security needs.
What types of plastic water filled barriers are there?
Portable water-filled barriers: lightweight, easy to move and set up, commonly used for crowd control and temporary security.
Freestanding water-filled barriers: typically larger and heavier than portable barriers, used for permanent or semi-permanent installations.
Inflatable water-filled barriers: similar to portable barriers, but with an air-filled inner bladder that is inflated to provide stability and security.
Modular water-filled barriers: designed for large scale and long-term use, often used for environmental and flood control purposes.
These barriers are made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic and are often used due to their stability, durability, and ease of transportation.
