ArmorZone™ TL-2 Plastic Barrier

ArmorZone™ TL-2 Plastic Barrier made up of plastic units that are joined together using a steel pin connector and filled with water. This provides a positive work zone barrier protection to temporary construction sites and other miscellaneous roadside activities. ArmorZone™ TL-2 Plastic Barrier has been designed and tested to meet the evaluation criteria of NCHRP 350 Test Level 2 (TL-2) for a longitudinal barrier.

ArmorZone™ TL-2 Plastic Barrier is the world’s first 100% polyethylene water filled barrier (no steel reinforcement) to have been judged to have satisfied the evaluation criteria of NCHRP 350 Test Level 2 (TL-2).  The unique polyethylene composition, profile design and steel pin connector allow the barrier to be installed straight or curved to a minimum radius of 28m if required.

The ArmorZoneTM End Treatment is a free standing 'special' end unit that can be fitted to the barrier in a tangent position if required. If this end treatment is not used the barrier will need to be flared.

The ArmorZone™ TL-2 Plastic Barrier is also available for hire. This is an ideal solution for temporary roadside protection without having to invest in product you may not use again. See our Hire Section for more information.

NB: Barriers must be filled with water to comply to NCHRP350 TL-2.
