Usage & Applications

There are countless applications for our water filled barriers.

Each piece can be used individually or locked together with a metal pin to create a longer barrier. Thanks to their portable, lightweight design, they’re easy to move around throughout the duration of your project.

Water filled barriers can be placed:

  • Along the sides of roads to create a safety buffer
  • Through lanes to prevent the flow of traffic
  • Across crosswalk areas to provide extra protection
  • Around construction areas to ensure the safety of workers
  • In high-traffic areas to redirect the flow of cars and pedestrians

Water Filled Barrier Products

Our water filled barriers are portable, lightweight, and easy to transport. Thanks to their bright color, they’re highly visible and stand out against any backdrop. As an added perk, the setup is simple and streamlined, so anyone can do it even if they don’t have special training or equipment. 

To ensure you get the product that works for your specific situation, we offer a variety of different shaped and sized barriers for you to choose from.
