Rental Barrier Applications
Concrete Traffic Barriers – Safety Applications
J-J Hooks traffic barriers reduce the risk of head on collisions from out-of-control vehicles crossing over the median. The weight of barriers and the interlocking J-J Hooks design provide sufficient inertia to redirect an impacting vehicle without requiring attachment to the highway when a minimum run of 12 foot length barrier is used. Jersey and F-shape barriers reduce the risk of erratic vehicles deflecting back into the traffic stream after barrier collision, avoiding traffic pile ups. Concrete barrier walls also decelerate errant vehicles within tolerable limits.
Concrete construction barriers protect construction workers by creating a high level of containment, by restraining stray vehicles from entering a work zone. Concrete highway barriers allow construction sites to operate safely in close proximity to busy roadways. Precast concrete barriers are useful for redirecting vehicles into new traffic patterns during different phases of construction.
Frequently precast barrier is used in permanent installation by extending the base by 2-3 inches and embedding this extension into the roadway paving. Precast Barrier can be used on bridges in a bolt-down installation or pinned to the pavement for roadway widening when a pavement cut is used on the edge of the roadway.
Transition Sections and other special designs are available in some locations.
