type 3 barricades, type 3 barricade, type 2 barricades, type 2 barricade, type 1 barricades, type 1 barricade, traffic barricade, traffic barricadesThere are many different features that can come on your type 3 barricade.  For example, did you know you can usually pick a 14 or 12 guage foot on the legs of your traffic barricade?  Well, you probably didn’t, and you probably don’t know what that is.

12 guage just means the leg is slightly thinner than the 14 guage.  The legs on type 3 barricades are typically steel, so deciding the guage is a way of deciding how tough you want the legs to be.  This is just one of many options that are out there when looking for traffic barricades.

Something else that was interesting was that the category underneath type 3 barricades – traffic barricades – was searched less than half of the time.  This doesn’t make any sense at first, but if you think about it it is probably just because those who are searching for these types of items are detailed in their searches because they know what they are talking about.

What is the difference between these grades?  They cost a lot more as you increase the grade, but the amount they reflect also drastically increases.  What are type 3 barricades made of?  You can get plywood or plastic type 3 barricades, though plastic is a lot more popular these days because of its light weight.
