What is a plastic safety fence made of?

In our line of business, we pride ourselves on the quality of our plastic barrier meshes. That's why all of our products are made of durable, impact-resistant and recyclable plastics. Whether high-density polyethylene (HDPE) or linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE), both plastics offer unique advantages for our different plastic barrier meshes. So what is a plastic safety fence made of? What are the details?

l High-density polyethylene (HDPE)

l Low-density polyethylene (LDPE)

l Linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE)

l Advantage: recycling

Types of polyethylene

Take a moment to think about everything in life made of plastic. A lot, right? From kettle to car parts, plastic is an important part of many items. There are various types of plastics, each with different advantages. the most common type of plastic is polyethylene (PE). Because this plastic can be made at different densities, it can be used in a variety of products. A number of common PE densities are:

High-density polyethylene (HDPE)

High-density polyethylene (HDPE) is the most versatile form of PE. It can be used in a variety of products, from water bottles to hard hats, to our own airports, traffic and crowd control roadblocks. HDPE is the strongest, toughest and most chemically resistant PE. and it is also the least flexible of the four PE mentioned here. These characteristics give HDPE a very long service life and weather resistance. It can tolerate higher temperatures and resist mold, mold, rot and insects. Most importantly, it has the strongest UV resistance and adds special UV stabilizers.

Low-density polyethylene (LDPE)

Low-density polyethylene (LDPE), the first polyethylene produced in 1933, is still commonly used. LDPE is a weaker polyethylene with lower tensile strength. As the name implies, LDPE has a low density and strong resistance. LDPE is also flexible and is usually used in plastic bags, plastic film and six-pack rings found around soda cans and bottles.

Linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE)

Linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) is a mixed form of LDPE. it is the softest type of polyethylene but has higher tensile strength than LDPE. LLDPE is very strong, the absorbing impact is excellent, will not tear or puncture. LLDPE used in a variety of products, such as toys, pipes, buckets and containers, and of course our road construction and safety guardrail product lines.

Advantage: recycling

Our products are durable and environmentally friendly by using LLDPE and HDPE, in the manufacture of plastic safety fence layers. Both types of PE are recyclable and are often used for other useful items. if you notice that triangular symbols found on plastic containers and products are used to inform consumers of recyclability. for different types of plastics, there are 7 different standard classifications for recycling purposes. Unlike what is commonly thought, not all plastics are easy to recycle. The PE types, HDPE and LLDPE we use to make products are 100% recyclable.

We want to ensure that our business is environmentally conscious and sustainable, which is why we choose to use HDPE and LLDPE for our plastic safety fence. HDPE resin identification code is 2, recyclable. HDPE is the most commonly used recycled plastic and is considered one of the safest forms. Recycling HDPE is simple and cheap, making it an excellent choice for reuse. After recycling, HDPE can be used for picnic tables, park benches, garbage bins, etc.

LLDPE resin code 4 is available for recycling. The recovery rate of LLDPE is not as good as HDPE, but it can still be recovered. recycling HDPE even becomes easier. A growing number of communities are recycling LLDPE. It is considered less toxic than other plastics and safe to use. After recycling, it can be used for plastic wood, trash bin lining and floor tiles.


If you are looking for any type of plastic safety fence, it is important to understand the life cycle, material and sustainability of the product. Roadblocks should be set up to resist weather, influence and sunlight, remain intact, vibrant and durable. We use the best quality materials to make a plastic safety fence, thus ensuring a long product life and reducing your business costs. Our products are also highly sustainable and can be recycled and reused. If you would like to know more about our various types of plastic safety fences, please contact us immediately, we hope to hear from you!
