Since 1987, TrafFix Devices, Inc. has been providing their customers with the most value for their channelizer drum dollars. The drum tops and bases we made in 1987 are still interchangeable with our current production model.
At TrafFix Devices, we use only the highest grade plastic resins to manufacture our drums. Our drum tops and bases are designed to "break-away" rather than "break-apart" upon impact.
Here is a TrafFix Devices drum top that has been impacted and appears crushed and unusable. Notice that it is not torn or broken but simply "flattened out." With most other manufacturers' products, this top would be added to the "drum graveyard" pictured above.
TrafFix Devices uses only top quality plastic resins and has engineered its' drums to be reshaped after most impacts. By applying simple hand pressure to the dented areas, most drums can be reshaped into their original form and reused.
Back On The Job!
The previously crushed drum has been snap-locked to its base and is ready to be put back on the job. Remember, every channelizer drum that you can salvage and reuse saves your money and keeps it out of landfills.
The TrafFix Channelizer Drums are available in rugged, durable high density polyethylene; or impact resistant, reshapeable low density polyethylene.
