  Highly Portable Barrier TRITON BARRIER® TL-3














 View Specifications


The Triton Barrier® TL-3 System provides an improved and more permanent method for upgrading existing Triton Barriers to NCHRP 350, Test Level 3. The Triton TL-3 allows users to “forget the kit,” and features a new pedestal system that uses only a screwdriver and steel strap to easily attach to the existing barrier. After stacking the Triton Barrier on top of two new TL-3 pedestals, a
mild strength steel band straps each pedestal to the barrier, creating a single, more permanent unit. Once assembled, the Triton TL-3 creates positive, crashworthy protection up to 100 km/h (62 mph) that will help to prevent penetration into work areas. With the new easy-to attach pedestals, Triton Barrier’s center of gravity automatically adjusts to provide high- speed, NCHRP 350, TL-3 performance. As a portable barrier, the Triton TL-3 transports easily from site to site for fast deployment without the use of cranes or heavy equipment.


The Triton Barrier TL-3 end treatment saves deployment time and hardware expenses. The last twenty sections of Triton Barrier, when oriented properly in relation to traffic and according to the end treatment instructions provided by Energy Absorption Systems, can serve as the crashworthy end treatment.


Meets NCHRP 350 TL-3 criteria for 100 km/h (62 mph) water-filled longitudinal workzone barriers.

Superior Design

Steel reinforced, water-filled polyethylene portable barrier sections absorb collision energy and redirect vehicles away from work crews as opposed to non-protective, non-redirective, longitudinal channelizing barricades.

No End Treatment Needed

Serves as its own portable TL-3 end treatment.

Fast Deployment

Lightweight sections require no cranes to assemble. Three workers can deploy up to 200 m (650 feet) of Triton barrier per hour.

Cost Effective

Cost effective to use compared to portable concrete barriers.

Pedestal Design

New TL-3 pedestals easily attach for a more permanent bond with existing Triton water filled barriers.
