Flexible barriers are barriers made of flexible or plastic materials. These barriers are generally used for traffic or perimeter safety. Flexible barriers do less damage when hit by vehicles exposed to road traffic because the flexible material absorbs the vehicles' energy. Flexible barriers may also be more environmentally friendly because building materials can often be recycled or reused.
Flexible barriers are generally more expensive than concrete or iron barriers, but require less maintenance and last longer. Flexible barriers are also safer for road traffic because they do less damage if hit by vehicles. The use of flexible barriers also allows road traffic to move more slowly, thus preventing accidents.
As a result, flexible barriers are an effective option for traffic and perimeter safety. The flexible material absorbs the energy of vehicles and does less damage, it can also be more environmentally friendly and requires less maintenance. The use of flexible barriers is safer for road traffic and prevents accidents.
