Pedestrian barriers are commonly used to establish boundaries between public access and areas where people are not allowed or to help direct the flow of movement. It is common to see them in the same settings where portable restrooms are needed, so when a customer calls looking for portable restrooms, offering temporary fencing can provide an additional source of income. 

The most common barricades are made of steel, and the metal can rust over time, diminishing the aesthetics and strength of the barricade. Metal is also heavy and cumbersome to deploy and move around. Oxford Plastics worked with a team of chemists and engineers to develop the Lantis Barrier.

This barrier is produced using 85% PCR, or post-consumer resin, an  environmentally friendly option that uses recycled plastics, according to David Sardinha, vice president of sales at Oxford Plastics USA.

Each barrier weighs 32 pounds and includes a molded easy-carry handle to make installation easier and more efficient. Oxford Plastics focused on making the barriers lighter and also engineered them for strength. “There’s strength, durability and flexibility with the Lantis Barrier,” Sardinha says. “In the event that a barrier is driven over or into, there’s give, and if warranted, repairs are easy.”

Before releasing the barriers to the public, Oxford Plastics put them through rigorous testing, including a 30-foot drop test, a drive over test and general wear and tear.

The feet on the barriers are designed to swivel, allowing the them to stack horizontally or vertically, allowing a greater number of barricades to securely stack, creating efficiency in storage and in transportation vehicles. They are 43 inches tall, 83 inches long with connectors, and 1.5 inches wide. Without  connecting pieces, they are 75.3 inches long. The connectors are designed to be compatible with steel barriers, so linking to an existing equipment is possible. Barriers come in a standard color of gray, but can be ordered in branded colors and with logos. 800-567-9182; www.oxfordplasticsusa.com.
