Traffic Safety Service Water Barriers

For temporary work-zones, detours, construction projects, and so much more, Traffic Safety Service offers specialized Water-Filled Barriers to provide temporary traffic control for your projects. Lightweight and easily portable, the TSS 590 Water Barriers are constructed ohigh-densityty polyethylene and links together with a state-of-the-art swivel pin. This specialty-manufactured swivel-pin allows barriers to be assembled with up to 90* maneuverability, making them conform to any road-way design. The TSS 590 Water Barrier is the only barrier available with this capability without additional corner pieces.

Water-Filled Barriers can also easily be customized to suit individual project needs. They come standard with light pockets for night-time use, and can be outfitted with specialty fencing to prevent people and animals from crossing over them.

The barriers are light, easy to assemble and can be molded in up to 590 available colors (at no extra charge!) to conform to any work zone, pedestrian safety or architectural needs. Traffic Safety Service’s Water Barriers can be filled with either water or sand depending on the user’s preferences. The combined aspects of easy visibility, stress-free maneuverability, and simple installation means less time designing traffic safety, money saved, and a more customized, safe job-site.
