Water filled barriers are the best and safest alternative to concrete with more affordable shipping, easier transport, and impact-absorbing durability.
Meet requirements, protect pedestrians, and get the industry’s most competitive pricing in one fell swoop. The range available at SONCO is the choice of thousands of contractors, managers, rental companies, and more.
SONCO water-filled barriers are made of rotationally molded, high-density polyethylene (HDPE) or low-density polyethylene (LDPE). Once filled, HDPE water-filled barriers can withstand vehicle impact like a concrete barrier — but with less damage. Plus, replacing plastic water barriers is much more affordable than updating concrete models.
Our water barriers for sale are certified by the U.S. Department of Transportation and built to standards set by the Federal Highway Administration. These guidelines ensure the most up-to-date safety and security levels, further guaranteed by rigorous testing. At SONCO, there’s no exception to perfection.
You wouldn’t know by looking at some of our competitors’ stock, but project sites vary drastically. From highly developed urban streets to long highway spans, barrier applications require different product sizes and configurations. That is why SONCO carries water barriers in a range of sizes. We also offer high-visibility barricades that quickly catch driver and pedestrian attention.
At SONCO, we not only manufacture and sell our own line of jersey barriers; we make fence toppers, too! Deter climbing, create ad space and enjoy overall greater height when you add chain-link fence toppers to your perimeter. Save now with a SafeGuard barrier and topper bundle.
When empty, jersey barriers are lightweight. They can be transported to the site, unloaded and arranged without heavy equipment or excessive labor.
Once in place, fill your barrier through the threaded top-fill port. Handy forklift holes make it easy to adjust or reconfigure your water-filled jersey barrier line. When the job is done, drain your barricade using the bottom port and enjoy light, easy load-up and transport!
PRO-TIP: For critical traffic applications, nighttime projects and more, add barricade lights to your water-filled barrier.
In addition to being expensive to ship and tough to transport, concrete barricades are prone to cracking and crumbling — especially after collisions. Water-filled barriers for sale at SONCO are made of weather- and UV-resistant HDPE, typically lasting eight years or more. HDPE also resists dents and cracks, a welcome change from concrete.
SAFETY TIP: Don’t allow personnel and pedestrians to put themselves at risk by climbing over barriers. Add access gates for safe, regulated entry and exit.
Forget piecing together a safe, compliant perimeter from multiple distributors. SONCO has all the accessories you’re looking for, from replacement components and lights to toppers and fence screens.
