Our water-cable filled barrier system is designed to form a series of individual sections linked together to function as a portable longitudinal barrier to keep vehicles from penetrating the linked barrier sections. This barrier provides a positive separation between vehicles on the roadway and workers in the roadside work zone.
When an impacting vehicle contacts the water-cable barrier, the water and internal molded-in steel cables act together to re-direct or bring the impacting vehicle to a controlled stop. The system utilizes water dispersion upon impact in combination with internal molded-in steel cables. Upon impact, the plastic container ruptures and disperses the contained water. Simultaneously, the internal steel cables provide the strength to safely catch the misguided vehicle like a net preventing vehicle intrusion into the work zone. All sections are orange or white and contain internal molded-in steel cables. Our water-cable barrier meets all industry needs with one product for all applications at all test level speeds. There is no need to keep variants for different speed levels, sizes, or applications in inventory.
