In America, these are referred to as "K rail" (in California) or "jersey barriers" (I heard that on a military base). They come as concrete for more permanent use or there is a plastic version that can be filled with water for stability and energy absorption.

Interesting that there are only four per box. I would think a mold and some resin would produce many more for the same price... I would buy their four just to make a mold.

Actually, Meng's SPS-012 offering might be a better fit in this case as they include molds for such barriers. Not sure about the price difference but at around 10 Euro it is hard to beat.

Now we'd only need molds for Hesco barriers...
