Chapter 8 Barriers get their name from the part of the Traffic Signs Manual and the New Roads & Street Works Act they conform to. These barriers are typically used on construction sites to deter entry by pedestrians.
What are Chapter 8 barriers?
Chapter 8 barriers comply with Chapter 8 of the Traffic Signs Manual and the New Roads & Street Works Act. Each chapter 8 barrier comes with the necessary red and white markings according to the guidelines. The barrier markings conform to EN12899-2 and are reflective to ensure high visibility at all times.
One of our most popular chapter 8barriers is the JSP Titan Traffic Barrier. These highly durable plastic barriers come with swivel feet to deploy them to site easily.They are also easy to store in the back of a van or truck when being transported. Each barrier can be connected end on end with another to close off large areas in an instant. To ensure they meet EN12899-2 they are fitted with reflective red and white bands that run along the outside of the barrier.
Another popular option with our customers is the JSP Alphabloc Water Filled Barrier. These highly visible barriers can be deployed to site easily and can be filled with water in order to weight them down - again the red and white colours used ensure they are fully chapter 8 compliant. They are also extremely lightweight so that they can be easily stored or transported when needed.
From The JSP range we also have the JSP Navigator Safety Barrier. These pedestrian barriers are part are made from hard wearing plastic.and come with Class R1 reflective panels. These panels allow the barriers to conform to BSEN12899-1.
