Barricades Spotlight: Summer Crowd Control, Traffic Safety & More

Summer is our busiest season for barricades.  From traffic barricades for road safety to crowd control for summer concerts and events, there is a  big need for barriers to block, channel and direct people and cars during the summer.  In most instances, the needs are temporary and it is important to have barriers that are easy to move but still sturdy enough to do the job and stay in place.  We wanted to take a few minutes to spotlight some great barricade options for you to help you with your summer safety and crowd control needs:

Linking Barricades

These are great because you can design your space exactly as you want it, creating angles and making the length of the barrier as long as needed easily by just snapping the segments together.  Some examples of this type of barricade are:

Portable Crowd Control

An alternative method for portable crowd control is replacing the bulky metal fencing of the past.  Avalon Barriers are a temporary crowd control solution that are sturdy, affordable and easy to use.  These barriers are built of a durable recycled polyethylene plastic. The blow molded technology gives them great strength while allowing them to remain lightweight (only 24 pounds each).  The easily withstand the elements, impact and all kinds of wear and tear.  They are made 100% recyclable and provide high visibility.

Avalon Barrier Design

The unique interlocking design of these barriers allow them to be used with several different configurations and at different angles.  This makes them ideal for not just level ground, but also for sloping terrain and even over street curbs.

Avalon Barricades on Uneven Ground

Avalon Crowd Control barriers can be used indoors or outdoors.  Some common indoor uses are indoor events and temporary excavations.  Outdoors they are often used for construction sites,  road work  public events and even airports or other large public areas where traffic control is needed.

Avalon Crowd Control Barriers with Anti-Trip Feet
The Avalon barriers have high visibility anti-trip feet made from dense, heavy molded plastic that provides ballast. The anti-trip feet are flexible too in that they can be turned to be flush with the surface for easier transport and storage.

They come with an recessed area large enough to easily insert retroreflective sheeting for even higher visibility.  Logos and signs can also be placed in that area. Additionally, each barrier comes with 4 pre-molded holes in the center to allow signs approximately 16″ x 22″ wide.

Avalon Crowd Control Barriers are available in four high visibility colors – Yellow, Orange, Blue and White.

Barricade Safety – Striping and Sheeting

Have you noticed that traffic barricades have stripes that either slope down to the left or to the right? This is to meet the requirements stated in the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices which specifies that traffic barricades must have alternating orange and white striping which slopes down in the direction that traffic is expected to pass on. So a ‘Right Barricade’ would be placed on the right and the striped would be sloped upward at a 45 degree angle. A ‘Left Barricade’ would be placed on the left and the stripes would be sloped downward at a 45 degree angle.

Plasticade has a variety of barriacdes with sheeting  which allows easy switching out of the stripes so that it can be used as a ‘left’ or ‘right’ barricade as needed. Plasticade barricades are also made of very durable plastic which can stand up to weather and traffic.

Using Appropriate Traffic Control Devices for Traffic Control

Traffic control devices are signs, signals or other marking devices which are used to regulate and guide traffic. They warn both cars and pedestrians of possible dangers on the street or highway. These devices are paramount for promoting highway safety and the efficient flow of traffic through construction or other dense traffic zones.

The Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) is recognized as one of the most widely used standards for traffic control. If you are unsure whether your traffic control equipment is appropriate for the job, this document will help you with many of your questions.  The latest edition was just updated in May of 2012 and is available online in pdf form with a ‘hot links’ version to make finding answers to your questions even easier:

Traffic Control Device Manual

 

Manual on Uniform Trafic Control Devices
(Regular and Hot Links PDF Versions)

In this manual you will find best practice standards, traffic control marking, and requirements for traffic control equipment from regulatory signs and traffic barricades to safety fences and school crossing signs. There is very detailed information on colors, sizes and other requirements which you will find very useful.
Of course, if you have more questions, we invite you to call our staff and we can help you choose the appropriate traffic control devices for your project.  You can call us toll free at (877) 966-1018.
