Plastic Road Barriers and their Advantages

Long term construction projects especially out on the road often require plastic road barriers. Our in-house designed and built interlocking plastic road barriers are perfect for road closures, low speed zones and construction projects. 

Plastic road barriers have several great advantages over traditional barrier solutions. Metal and concrete barriers are not only extremely heavy but also expensive. Our lightweight plastics design provides the same function for a fraction of the price.

Our lightweight barriers can be easily manipulated into position and then filled with water to stay there. Each barrier can interlock with its neighbours serving as a pivot point. Therefore, in the event of a crash the impacted barrier is prevented from toppling and the entire barrier chain absorbs the impact.

Ourn genius interlocking design does not require any pins or cables, as every barrier is designed with a male and female end. Allowing for simple and fast interlocking to form a barricade without extra supplies. 

Unlike traditional counterparts, plastic road barriers can come in a wide variety of colours. Polyethylene plastic is able to be dyed any colour and treated to resist fading in the harsh New Zealand sun. Keeping your barriers highly visible throughout their lifespan.

Orange is a commonly chosen colour for use in road works and construction. However, other colours like white are useful as pedestrian barriers. The lack of visibility can help steer crowds from areas of restricted access during events. 

Once your plastic road barriers finally come to the end of their life, they are fully recyclable. Keeping the plastic out of our landfills.

V Pallets Rotationally Moulded


As you may have discovered, there is not a lot of information on “V Pallets” when you search online.  This type of pallet can also be listed as Pallet V. So here is the needed information on this form of pallet.

We at Rotational plastics offer rotationally moulded V Pallets which offer a safe and practical solution to secure barrels or circular items such as rolls of material, and other things that would normally roll about.  Our V Pallets allow a barrel or roll to be laid on its side in a fixed position.  The pallet, with the barrel or roll in place can then be oved via a forklift or hand truck.  If the barrel has a tap fitted thin it can be placed so that the tap is in the lowest position, allowing all the contents to be drawn off via the tap.  We have low and deep V options, plus pallets with either two or three V’s.  Our pallets are manufactured from 100% recyclable food grade polyethylene plastic.  They can be washed and sterilised for use in food production environments.  You can reduce your product damage and increase your handling efficiency with pallets that last for many years in service.

1 V 895mm 675mm 190mm

2 V 1210mm 1200mm 240mm
