Barrier pins are used to connect precast concrete highway barriers together. Portland Bolt’s approved head design allows for easy removal without the need for special tools.
In some states, high strength pins get driven through the base of precast concrete barriers in order to pin them to the ground. Base pins are usually made from high strength steel, hot-dipped galvanized with a semi cone point. Appropriate specifications are stamped on the end per ASTM or AASHTO. Certification documents are provided for all orders. Headed pins are also available. Dimensions vary by state. Contact Portland Bolt for detailed information.
