Used Concrete Barriers

Concrete Barriers

At Accent Barriers, we specialize in providing high-quality used concrete barriers, including the widely recognized 10-foot Jersey style barriers. Known for their robust construction, these barriers weigh approximately 4,000 lbs each, standing 10 feet long, 32 inches tall, and 24 inches wide at the base. Ideal for a range of applications, from traffic control to security measures, Jersey style barriers are a staple in both construction and event management due to their durability and stability.

Variety and Specifications

In addition to the classic Jersey style, we also offer the “F” style concrete traffic barriers. These units are 12.5 feet in length, maintaining a height of 32 inches and a base width of 24 inches, and they weigh about 5,400 pounds. The “F” style barriers are designed to offer slightly more coverage and weight, making them suitable for environments requiring robust control measures. Although they bear a close resemblance to the Jersey barriers in appearance, their increased length and weight enhance their utility in more demanding settings.

Handling and Installation

It’s important to note that handling these substantial structures requires appropriate machinery. Typical skid steers are not capable of moving either type of barrier due to their significant weight. For effective transportation and placement, heavy-duty equipment such as forklifts, telehandlers, payloaders, cranes, or excavators is necessary. These tools ensure that the barriers can be safely and efficiently maneuvered into place, whether for temporary installations or permanent setups.

Applications of Concrete Barriers
Concrete barriers are incredibly versatile, used widely across various industries. Some common applications include:

  1. Traffic Management: Ideal for organizing flow or blocking off areas during road work or after traffic accidents to protect workers and the public.

  2. Security Barriers: Effective in preventing unauthorized access to restricted areas at events, commercial properties, or sensitive installations.

  3. Flood Defense: Used to divert water flow or block floodwaters in areas prone to flooding, helping to protect properties and landscapes.

  4. Noise Reduction: Positioned along highways or construction sites and usually with a sound dampening  fence mounted on top, concrete barriers help to reduce noise pollution in adjacent residential or commercial areas.

  5. Perimeter Security: Often used around the perimeter of construction sites, parking lots, or to protect utilities and other critical infrastructure from accidental impacts.
Advantages of Using Used Concrete Barriers
Using used concrete barriers comes with several benefits:

  • Cost-Effective: Significantly lower cost compared to new barriers while still providing substantial protective functionality.

  • Sustainability: Contributes to environmental conservation by reducing the demand for new resources and minimizing waste.

  • Availability: Typically more readily available for immediate delivery and installation, which can be crucial for projects under tight deadlines.
Used vs. New Barriers

The concrete barriers we provide are typically used, which offers a cost-effective solution for many projects. Opting for used barriers not only reduces costs but also contributes to environmental sustainability by recycling and reusing materials that are still in excellent condition. For those requiring new barriers, we can accommodate these needs as well. New barriers guarantee that you receive products that meet specific standards and are free from any prior wear and tear, ideal for projects requiring pristine condition materials.  When apearances matter, new barriers are the way to go.

Customization and Compliance

Concrete barriers can be customized in terms of size, weight, and design. This flexibility allows us to meet local regulations and standards, ensuring that all barriers deployed on your site comply with safety and zoning requirements.
