48 Barriers’ public safety barriers and barricades (also known as Jersey barriers, road barriers, or K-Rail barriers) are designed purposefully to keep pedestrians and automobiles from certain areas, facilitate traffic delineation, and make no-access areas obvious. These Department of Transportation approved 48 Barriers devices can be installed in many areas from construction zones to large crowd events to short term traffic redirection. Steel, plastic or small concrete barricades and barriers can be used as single units or interlocked for more traffic control.

Other common applications for barriers and public safety barricades are for traffic control during high population events like parades, festivals, sporting events, concerts, and outdoor gatherings.
