These road barriers can be supplied with the sturdy standard black feet or sleek anti-trip feet. The anti-trip foot is specially designed to completely eliminate a trip hazard on one side. We recommend using an anti-trip foot when work is taking place in highly pedestrianised areas. Make sure the anti-trip shallow side of the foot is facing pedestrianised walkways and you can immediately eliminate the possibility of civilians tripping and injuring themselves. Both types of feet swivel, meaning that you can easily stack the barriers on top of one another once the plastic barrier feet are swivelled in line with the barrier. Once rotated 90 degrees, so they are perpendicular to the barrier, they provide a stable and secure base. 

Designed for temporary use, plastic road barriers are extremely hardwearing and completely reusable. These road barriers connect to each other by using a very simple male and female connection. The one side of the barrier is equipped with a hole, into which the opposite side of the next road barrier securely slots into. This makes these plastic barriers these easiest on the market to connect & you can quickly assemble a temporary safety barrier system. 

Road safety barriers high visibility colours act as an early warning of hazards for both pedestrians and road users, with an additional reflective strip to enhance visibility after dark or in poor weather conditions. This makes them ideal for providing safe traffic management, or for indicating hazardous areas when road maintenance is taking place.

These plastic safety barriers are available for delivery throughout the UK across England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. For international orders please contact our team directly. 


We also have a Chapter 8 Tuff Traffic Barrier available to buy directly from the Safe Fence website. The Tuff traffic barrier is incredibly popular amongst road contractors due to its unique robust design and incorporation of the world famous Q clip. 

For a smaller, but sturdy, water filled barrier then take a look at our standard water fill traffic barrier. These road barriers are only 560mm tall, but once filled with water they weight a whopping 55kg. Although they lack a lot of the 800mm water separators unique & revolutionary features, for everyday use they present a great alternative for road delineation and separation. They are commonly used for as a more semi-permanent solution due to their weight. If you need a taller water filled barrier then take a look at our 800mm water filled barrier. It is a slightly lighter barrier at 27.5kg once filled, but its unique design means it is incredibly durable and wind resistant.

How important is Traffic Management? 


"Each year within the construction industry, approximately ten people die as a result of being struck by vehicles on site. In addition, there are hundreds of preventable accidents and injuries. Accidents occur from groundwork’s to finishing works and managers, workers, visitors to sites and members of the public can all be at risk. Inadequate planning and control is the root cause of many construction vehicle accidents." (source:


So the answer is of course yes, it is incredibly important. But what can we do to undertake sufficient Traffic Management? It is crucial to keep pedestrians and vehicles separate wherever popular, and our range of plastic road barriers are the favored method that many people choose to take. 


Here are some more important tips from HSE: 

  • Entrances and exits - provide separate entry and exit gateways for pedestrians and vehicles;
  • Walkways - provide firm, level, well-drained pedestrian walkways that take a direct route where possible;
  • Crossings - where walkways cross roadways, provide a clearly signed and lit crossing point where drivers and pedestrians can see each other clearly;
  • Visibility - make sure drivers driving out onto public roads can see both ways along the footway before they move on to it;
  • Obstructions – do not block walkways so that pedestrians have to step onto the vehicle route; and
  • Barriers - think about installing a barrier between the roadway and walkway.
