Barrier can be filled with water for a total estimated weight of 1600lbs (160lbs empty). Water filled barriers come in orange (default color) or white and can be interlocked to form a continuous solid wall.

For an Interlocking Water Filled Barrier, provide a minimum buffer zone of 50 m whenever possible in advance of the work zone in accordance with AT standard drawings TCS-B-1.22A, 1.23B, 1.24B, 1.25B, or 1.26A. Due to previous experience, AT does not accept Water Filled Barriers as a barrier system on Alberta highways where the posted speed in the work zone exceeds 60 km/h; however, Contractors may use them to control traffic within or through their work zones. These barriers do not have to meet NCHRP Report 350 compliance tests. The longer buffer zone for the interlocking Water Filled Barrier is necessary due to the larger design deflection.
For long duration bridge construction projects, water filled barriers may served as temporary barriers and required as follows:
An Interlocking Water Filled System (1.83 m long x 1.06 m high) may be used as a barricade on bridge construction projects when both of the following conditions are met:
  • Posted work zone speed is equal to or less than 60 km/h
  • The vertical drop from the roadway surface does not exceed 300 mm

Reflective Sheeting Types

DG Highest Visibility (Fluorescent)

The highest level of reflectivity. Up to 10X brighter than Engineer-Grade Prismatic. Offers great visibility and reflectivity from distances and wide angles, both day at night.

Meets or Exceeds ASTM D 4956, Type IX or Type XI

Related Terms:

HIP High-Intensity Prismatic

3X brighter than Engineer-Grade Prismatic. Effective for daytime, nighttime and artificial light conditions. Provides durability and long-term reflectivity.

Meets ASTM D 4956, Type III, Type IV.

Related Terms:

ENG Engineer Grade

Economical prismatic sheeting provides better day and nighttime brightness and is recommended for commercial sign applications as well as non-critical traffic control signs, regulated by the MUTCD.

Meets ASTM D 4956 Type I

Substrate Material Types

Aluminum Blanks

Aluminum sheeting meets or exceeds ASTM 5052-H38 specifications and is .081" thick. Traffic signs use this specification to meet Transportation Standards, unless otherwise stated for non-critical traffic signage or commercial applications. All aluminum blanks come with pre-drilled holes for mounting, and rounded corners.

Meets or Exceeds ASTM 5052-H38, 0.081" Thickness

Crezone (HDO) Wood

Crezone HDO (High Density Overlaid) board is extremely durable exterior type plywood with a weather-resistant resin overlay bonded to the wood by heat and pressure. This process fuses the molecules of the overlay with the fibres of the wood to form a bond as strong as the wood itself. In many instances, overlaid HDO plywood has proven a more durable sign material than metal. HDO plywood is resistant to the elements with no danger of rust or corrosion. It is typically used for larger signs, or uncommon sizes made-to-order.
