Water Filled Barricade
Discover the effectiveness of the Traffic Barricade, a vital longitudinal channeling device (LCD), in work zones across the State of Washington, and understand why opting for a water-filled barricade is a cost-effective choice.
Enhanced Safety for Work Zones: Construction zone collisions often have tragic consequences, extending beyond material loss to threaten lives. To address this, we developed the Traffic Barricade, prioritizing safety for both drivers and work crews. This 42-inch Jersey Shape LCD is an advanced iteration of our JSS LCD product, boasting improved features to enhance versatility while adhering to rigorous safety standards.
Approved by NCHRP 350 Standard: The Traffic Barricade has earned approval from the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) 350 standard as a Longitudinal Channelizing Device (LCD) at Test Level 3 (TL-3) criteria. This accreditation makes it suitable for use in high-speed construction zones, ensuring that it meets the highest safety standards.
Optional Fence Kit: For added safety, consider our optional fence kit, which serves as a pedestrian deterrent, provides protection from projectile debris, and supports privacy screening. This versatile feature enhances the barricade’s functionality and safety in diverse work zone scenarios.
Cost-Effective Water-Filled Design: Concrete barriers, although commonly used, are not always necessary and can redirect vehicles into active traffic, potentially leading to fatal accidents. Traffic cones and drums, while popular, can cause confusion for drivers at normal traffic speeds. In contrast, the Traffic Barricade forms a clear and unmistakable line of delineation, acting as a reliable barrier. This not only enhances safety but also reduces the risk of costly accidents and delays.
