Product Overview

Traffic Barrels (also known as Traffic Drums) are highly visible channelizing devices that can increase driver awareness of potential hazards or irregularities in the roadway.  Barrels are optimal for keeping workers, pedestrians, and drivers safe in both local road and highway construction and maintenance zones.  A line of traffic barrels can work to warn drivers well in advance of on oncoming roadwork. 

Barrel Material and Certificaiton

Our channelizing barrels are tested and assured to meet or exceed standards set by the Federal Highway Administration.  These barrels meet and exceed MUTCD standards with a NCHRP crash test rating of 350. 

Our barrels are designed for both superior rebound-ability and durability.  Select either High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) or Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE).  HDPE barrels are more rigid will retain their rebound-ability under high temperature conditions, making them optimal for warmer climates and summer roadwork.  LDPE barrels are lighter and more flexible, making them ideal for cooler or winter roadwork.

Barrel Reflective Tape Options:

Our barrels come with multiple reflective tape options. Type A or C flashing barricade lights can be mounted on top for increased nighttime visibility.   

Tape Type Nighttime Visibility
No Tape Traffic Barrel
No Tape NA
Engineer Grade Traffic Barrel
Engineer Grade 500 ft
High Intensity Prismatic Tape Traffic Barrel
High Intensity Prismatic 1000 ft
Diamond Grade  Traffic Barrel
Diamond Grade  1500 ft


Custom Stenciling and Molding Available:

Custom stenciling and molding can prevent theft of traffic barrels or help identify and organize them.  They can also be great for marketing and give your barrels a professional look.

The design of these barrels allows for lights to be folded down on the barrel and stacked with the barrel during storage.  This dramatically reduces set-up time and complications in transportation.

      customer service

      I bought the product online and had no issues. I called to clarify something on my order, and spoke to a Rep. and since it was my first time buying this product no one mentioned to me that I needed a tire rubber ring to hold down the Barrel. I think the customer service Rep. should told me about the tire ring. Now I have to wait for the tire ring to be able to use this product.
