The TrafFix Water-Cable Barrier is designed with three (3) molded in galvanized steel cables that strengthen the water-cable barrer to resist vehicle penetration during an impact. The hinges are designed to allow a 30° pivot between sections and each hinge features a double wall knuckle design that greatly minimizes breakage. Each wall includes one (1) galvanized steel T-pin to securely link Water-Cable Barrier sections together.

The large 8" fill holes speed up the filling process reducing setup time in dangerous roadway workzones. The tamper resistant drain plug has coarse buttress threads that elminates cross threading and allows for quick insertion or removal with only 2½ turns. With large forklift/pallet jack slots, the water-cable barrier is easy to move when empty or full — further reducing time spent in workzones. The water-cable barriers can be stacked, while empty, for easy storage and transport to and from job sites.

Made from durable UV resistant ployethylene plastic, the TrafFix Water-Cable Barrier prevents breaking, cracking, and fading in most weather conditions.
