Type X Barrier
The term ‘Type X’ was created by the cross-bolt connection pattern that link each piece of barrier. Type X construction barrier is manufactured in (2) standard lengths; 9144mm and 3048mm. Although heavy equipment is required to move the larger of the (2) segments, their length and mass help reduce dynamic deflections once they are in place. 4000mm lengths are available, however they are not a longitudinal barrier intended to contain and redirect traffic like the (2) standard lengths, rather this length is a component of a transition system.
