type 3 barricades, type 3 barricade, type 2 barricades, traffic barricade, traffic barricadesDriving this past weekend I noticed that there was an immense amount of type 3 barricades.  They seemed to be everywhere, in front of arrow boards, next to traffic message boards, and just along the road next to a construction project.

I noticed that a lot of times the type 3 barricades were in spots where the traffic drums usually were.  I am not sure if this is a new trend or if it makes it safer?

A type 3 barricade has 3 boards across it, a type 2 has two boards and a type 1 has one board.  Type 3 are usually wider than type 1 or two.  I also notice that type 3 is commonly used to block off roads.

If you have used the barricade for a little while and then started having issues, the typical way a seller handles it is they take it back to see if the issue was caused by wear and tear.  I would suggest first calling the distributor and then second calling the manufacturer.

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.

type 3 barricades, type 3 barricade, type 2 barricades, type 2 barricade, type 1 barricades, type 1 barricade, traffic barricade, traffic barricadesIt is really interesting to see what people search for, and that is what I did today, I saw how people searched for the term type 3 barricades.  What is interesting is that there are more searches for type iii barricade (type III barricade) than type 3 barricade.  In fact there were double the amount of searches.

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.
