A Jersey barrier is a simple but effective concrete barrier that can be used to solve a wide range of potential security issues such as traffic management problems. In the majority of cases, they are used for effective traffic management because they are a simple way to safely separate vehicles on the road. However, barriers can also be used to protect land and buildings from trespassers and unauthorized vehicles.
Areas that experience problems with fly tipping or squatting, for example, can be protected by barriers as vehicle access can be sufficiently blocked. Without jersey barriers as a first line of defence, these issues can quickly spiral out of control and lead to a lot of expensive property damage.
We provide a full installation service. Speak to the team today for a free installation quotation for your project.
Our fast and reliable Jersey barrier hire service can help you to manage whatever security issues you may be facing. We will commission, deliver and remove the blocks once they are no longer needed. We’re available 24/7 and offer a rapid response service as we know that our clients have needs at all times during the day.
Our standard Jersey barrier is 25000mm in length and weighs in at 1450kg, but there are other sizes available. When you call to discuss your project, our experienced installers will advise on an appropriate solution and help you to decide which option is best for your particular project.
Each barrier is specifically designed for either forklift or top lift installation, so once they are delivered, it will take no time at all for our expert team to install them for you so you can continue with your project.
Jersey barriers are concrete blocks that are extremely heavy and mainly used for traffic management, separating carriageways, creating temporary car parking facilities and protecting highway crews working close to moving vehicles.
The key feature of a jersey barrier is the shape, specifically designed to mitigate the risks of serious outcomes when a vehicle crashes or loses control.
Each block has an angled configuration rather than a flat, vertical block. If a vehicle hits a wall at speed, this commonly means the car will flip or the bonnet will crumple, causing risk to other road users and potentially causing a fatality.
Angled jersey barrier blocks mean that the tyre closest to the barrier lifts slightly as it impacts against the barrier wall. This movement can allow the driver to correct the vehicle direction, force the car to turn in parallel with the barrier, and prevent it from continuing over a verge, possibly down a steep bank or towards water.
While concrete blocks are straightforward physical barriers, the upper slope efficiently reduces the friction between the road and the tyre, which is another way to minimise harm. Barrier walls are also an excellent way to prevent a vehicle from rebounding from a wall and colliding back into oncoming traffic and causing a more severe accident.
Jersey barrier blocks are used in various applications and can improve road safety, reduce the risk of illegal trespass, and prevent vehicle-based attacks, including ram-raiding.
Concrete blocks are also suited to defences against flooding, with a fully interlocked barrier that can withstand extreme pressure and prevent rapid water ingress.
Clearway provides a variety of concrete blocks, each with varying features, applications, and benefits for short or long term hire. Our jersey barriers offer excellent security for larger outdoor spaces and can prevent access by individuals and vehicles or control the flow of traffic to implement site safety procedures.
Precast jersey barrier blocks are delivered directly to your site and assembled in the required layout, with removal or repositioning available should you need to adjust your barrier – for example, reconfiguring barriers along the carriageway as highway work progresses.
With over 30 years of operational experience, we are a trusted partner for authorities such as the Police and emergency services, large construction business and transport sites. We offer a comprehensive security solution ranging from concrete barrier hire to vacant property security.
We may advise an alternative solution to a Jersey barrier depending on your individual project requirements. We supply a number of precast concrete barrier solutions such as temporary vertical concrete barriers, barriers with heras fencing and interlocking concrete blocks. We also provide additional services such as sharps waste removal and fly-tipping removal should you already have a security breach of this kind.
Whether you are looking for a security solution for a property, planning an event, managing traffic, or anything else, our Jersey barrier hire service is here to help. Get in touch today and we can discuss your project.
Jersey barriers can quickly slow a vehicle travelling out of control and at high speeds, prevent it from crashing into work zones, or stop cars from driving into high-risk areas or natural hazards such as lakes, steep gullies, or banks.
The interlocking system and angled design of each jersey block mean that vehicle damage is reduced, and the risk of a fatality or severe injury is mitigated, hence the use of jersey barriers throughout highways safety management, roadwork teams and maintenance projects.
Creating a continuous barrier along the length of the roadway is ideal where there is a sudden drop or where a lane verges on open water – they can also be moved in stages while work continues adjacent to the road.
A jersey block is made from solid precast concrete and is extremely robust. These blocks are naturally resistant to impacts, weight pressure and water, yet take very little time to install.
Most blocks are suited for use for several years, although Clearway can recommend the correct replacement periods if you need to hire jersey barriers on a long term basis.
