Jersey barriers, also known as Jersey walls or K-rails, are common types of modular concrete barriers used for various purposes in construction, roadways, events, and security applications.

  • Material – Jersey barriers are typically made of reinforced concrete, which makes them sturdy and durable. The concrete material provides excellent resistance against impact and weathering, making Jersey barriers suitable for long-term use in outdoor environments.
  • Shape and Design – Jersey barriers have a distinctive shape characterized by a tapered design, with the barrier being wider at the base and narrower at the top. This design helps to deflect vehicles upon impact and prevents them from easily climbing over the barrier. The barriers are usually rectangular in shape and have flat surfaces on both sides.


  • Traffic Control – Jersey barriers are commonly used in road construction and highway projects to redirect traffic, create temporary lanes, and provide protection for workers and motorists.
  • Event Management – They are often deployed during events, festivals, and parades to control pedestrian and vehicular traffic, create secure perimeters, and protect attendees.
  • Security – Jersey barriers are employed for security purposes to protect buildings, infrastructure, and public spaces from vehicle ramming attacks or unauthorized access.
  • Construction Sites – They serve as barricades and safety barriers on construction sites to separate work areas, prevent accidents, and protect workers and equipment.
  • Transportation – Jersey barriers are designed to be easily transportable and deployable. They can be transported using heavy machinery such as forklifts, cranes, or flatbed trucks and positioned quickly at the desired location.
  • Reflective Features – To enhance visibility, especially during nighttime or low-light conditions, Jersey barriers may be equipped with reflective strips or markers. These reflective features improve safety by increasing the visibility of the barriers to motorists and pedestrians.
  • Durability and Longevity – Jersey barriers are built to withstand heavy impacts and harsh environmental conditions. The concrete construction ensures durability, and with proper maintenance, they can last for many years.
