If you have steel barriers which are not being used because of damaged bases, our interchangeable replacement bases can put those barriers back to work for you

Traditional Bridge Base

  • The most popular base style since steel barriers were invented
  • Provides best resistance to “push” by crowds at events such as parades
  • Maximum stability on uneven surfaces
  • Each individual barrier has one large base and one small base
  • This allows all four points of the base to “dig in” and remain in constant contact with the ground
  • Accommodates placement of barriers in both a straight line and at various angles

Flat Base

  • Second most popular base style
  • Ideal for use as portable pedestrian railing in situations where crowds will be walking parallel to barriers
  • Used by New York City Department of Transportation to divert pedestrians around construction sites
  • Rubber inserts provide additional friction and reduce sliding
  • Features holes for semi-permanent anchoring

 

“U” Base

  • A new design similar to the traditional bridge base
  • Provides excellent four-point stability
  • Originally utilized by France’s Interior Department
  • Rubber stoppers help protect the floor during indoor use and reduce sliding

Wheel Base

  • Makes barriers easier to move
  • Ideal for areas where constant lifting or moving occurs (such as parking lots)

 

Inserts

  • Available for use as an alternative to a base on the female end of a barrier
  • Standard on the female end of 1-meter barriers
  • Allow barriers to be placed at angles (particularly when flat bases are utilized
