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:

Delineators - Traffic Delineators

Delineators 101

Delineators are used in many different ways. Because they are lightweight and easy to move and store, they are a great option for temporarily redirecting traffic, blocking areas and temporary road closures.  Unlike Bollards which tend to be heavier and used more as an obstruction to traffic and to protect from ramming, delineators are lighter weight and serve a more visual capacity to help direct traffic.  However, they are still sturdy and their flexible material will withstand impact if needed though they might not stay upright.

There are different versions of delineators. One of the most common is the simple open top delineator which is highly visible and portable. They can be purchased with or without reflective bands.  The ring top delineator and claw delineators are similar but have an opening at the top to allow for use of caution tape with the delineator.  The caution tape can either be held in the claw or wrapped around and through the ring.

One of the popular delineator models is the DP 200 Series post which is a 3-inch round channelizer made of polyurethane. Polyurethane is the toughest flexible plastic available and is extremely flexible. Even at extreme temperatures it returnsto an upright position after impact. The DP 200 posts are highly visible both day and night and help to delineate driving lanes with bright colors and reflective sheeting.  It has been NTPEP tested and meets the requirements of NCHRP 350 for Category 1 Devices.

The most important things to look for in selecting delineators is durability and visibility.  All the delineators at Traffic Safety Warehouse meet MUTCD (Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices) standards. If you need help in determining the best traffic control device for your project, give us a call and we will be happy to help you.

 

 

Portable Crowd Control Barriers

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 Barriers

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.

Types of Barricades

Traffic barricades (also known as safety or road barricades) are used to control the flow of traffic in a specified area. They are used at construction sites, accident scenes, as roadblocks, at schools and in a variety of other crowd control situations. There are many different types of road barricades in varying sizes, weights and strengths. So it is important to choose the type of barricade that will best serve your needs. This is a quick traffic barricade overview for those who are just getting acquainted with the types of barricades and their uses that we hope you will find helpful.

Type I BarricadesType I Barricades

The Type I Barricade is so named because it has only one reflective rail. Typically it is at least 24 inches wide with orange and white stripes alternating at a 45 degree angle. Sometimes, a second non-reflective rail is added to help give it a more stable base of support. Often Type I Barricades are used for pedestrian traffic control and are used on low speed roads.

View Type I Barricades >>

Type II BarricadesType II Barricades

Type II Barricades have two reflective rails, also with alternating orange and white stripes. Because the bottom portion of the barricade is also a reflective surface, these generally offer better visibility at night than the Type I Barricades. These barricades also meet the requirements for use on expressways or other higher speed roads.

View Type II Barricades >>

Type III BarricadesType III Barricades

Type III Barricades are larger and have (yes you guessed it) three reflective panels with alternating orange and white stripes. They are at least 4 feet wide (or larger) and are most often used for road closings because of their size and visibility. You have seen these types of barricades positioned across roadways for detours, road closing and other types of traffic control.

A-Frame BarricadesA-Frame Barricades

A-Frame Barricades typically include a pair of A Frame barricade legs plus a two-sided reflective barricade board. Often they are used to keep a safe distance for workers or pedestrians on roadway work sites or for events needing crowd control.

Traffic Barrels - ChannelizersTraffic Barrels

Traffic Barrels (also referred to as channelizer drums) are also used at construction sites and have alternating white and orange reflective bands. They typically have a rubber base that helps them to remain upright during strong winds or when hit by a vehicle. Most have a handle on top for easy pick up and carry as well as to provide a place to place a barricade light for increased visibility at night.
