When To Choose a Plastic Base vs. a Rubber base for a Delineator

Rubber bases are made from 100% recycled tire rubber and used for portable channelizers, delineators, and for temporary use applications. If need be, they can be surface mount glued down (you can use epoxy or butyl pads). They are typically more expensive than a plastic base.

Urethane bases are not considered a portable delineator, as they are attached to the road surface using butyl pads, A-B epoxy resin, bituminous hot-melts or bolted to the surface. They are mostly used for permanent applications where product durability is important, but also used for temporary use.

Plastic Bases are also not considered a portable delineator, as they are attached to the road surface using butyl pads, A-B epoxy resin, bituminous hot-melts or bolted to the surface. The make for an inexpensive, work zone delineator that is reboundable, but not made to withstand repeated high speed. They are typically used in work zone products for lower speed, construction zone, parking lot, and temporary applications. Plastic bases can be used for permanent installations in protected areas. They are surface mounted for glue down or bolt down (you can use epoxy or butyl pads or red headed concrete bolts). Plastic bases are typically cheaper than rubber bases.

Water Filled Barrier for Security and to Meet NCHRP-350 Crashworthy Test Requirements for TL-1, TL-2 and TL-3

The water-cable barrier system is a plastic, water filled portable longitudinal barrier used on the National Highway System to provide positive protection in the work zone. This type of barrier has several advantages over other water filled barrier products. The high level of internal impact energy attenuation requires no externally added steel. The water-cable barrier 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.  Our water-cable barrier system is accepted as a longitudinal barrier and as a longitudinal device and meets NCHRP-350 crashworthy test requirements for TL-1, TL-2 and TL-3. This multi accepted product eliminates the identification and mislabeling of products between barrier, device, or barricade. The 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.

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.
