When Are Channelizer Drums Used?


Reflective channelizer drums indicate the change of direction for lane closures and can be utilized for separation and crosswalk places of roads or lanes during construction or repairs. These traffic safety devices are perfect for both pedestrians and vehicles because of their visibility, and durability.

Our traffic barrels or channelizer drums feature five reflective bands three orange and two white and have an over the top heavy weighted ring for stability.

If employing either a base a rubber barrel tire ring or PVC foundation band, upon impact, the barrel will pop out of the base for security reasons. Barricade lights may be connected to the top for directional goals or greater visibility.

Why These Safety Barrels Are Perfect For You


If time, efficiency, and safety are your highest priorities, then you need traffic safety barrels that work just as hard as you do. Our traffic control barrels were made with your tough projects in mind, and the experts at Traffic Safety Store have worked hard to ensure each aspect is fit to meet your needs.

These quality traffic control barrels showcase enlarged built-in carrying/dragging handles that make it easy for gloved workers to work with, and the safety barrels feature two pre-molded light or flag mounting holes intended for bolt sizes that are conventional.

The "D" shaped layout minimizes rolling after impact and separation from the base, while the tapering allows for stacking with or without an attached barricade light.

You can even customize your order with a 4" or 6" reflective sheeting and impact resistant, re-shapable low-density polyethylene. The discretionary 25 lbs. Tire ring foundation, made from truck tire sidewall sections, features two molded-in, anti-rotation ribs to ensure the foundation stays securely in place while the rubber grips the road.

Rugged Design For Extended Use

Traffic Safety Store’s channelizer drums are designed to remain locked together when moved or when dragged around work zones. The easy-to-use handle on the top of each traffic barrel allows the barrels to be efficiently moved.

Advanced Engineering & Structure

This is a drum top that is impacted and seems unusable and smashed. Notice that it is not ripped or broken but only "flattened out." With most other manufacturers' products, this top would be added to the "drum graveyard" pictured on this particular page.

High-Quality Materials

We use only high-quality plastic resins and have engineered our drums to be reshaped after most impacts. By implementing simple hand pressure to the places that were dented, most drums may be reshaped in their original form and reused.

Traffic Control Barrel Base Options


In the past, work crews were required to use sandbags to stabilize traffic control barrels. Many barrels needed at least two sandbags, and the need for sandbags made moving and placing safety barrels difficult.

The sandbags transported and placed, and then should first be filled in the task site on, within, or against the outside base or flange of the drum in place. This endeavor is labor intensive and significantly increases labor, and space requirements for setting up the drums.

Our traffic control barrels come with a weighted base to ensure the stability and transportation of these devices. Our traffic channelizing devices come with detachable, two piece design. This traffic safety equipment have precise weights and are much easier to use than concrete or sand weights.

  • - Any of our barrels can take either our 22.5 lb. traffic barrel base.
  • - All bases (besides tire ring) will snap on and lock tightly to the drum.
  • - The barrel stays in place via an anti-rotation knob.
  • - Rubber bases hug closely to the road due to a grid pattern on the bottom.
  • - There is a carrying handle built into the foundations.
