How much do type 3 barricades costs?  It depends on a couple different things, but I would say an average price is around $120.  How wide are they?  They can be between 4 and 10 feet wide, depending on what the supplier offers.

It could be that you need them to stay up even when hit by a car, though less likely.  To explore the different weight options, first find out the weight of the cone and then the accessories they offer in order to increase the weight of the traffic cone and keep it down.

Regular solar barricade lights are not powered by as many LEDs as type b solar barricade lights.  Type b solar barricade lights are considered ‘hi intensity’ and produce enough light to be seen during the day as well as during the night.

Traffic drums provide a barricade between construction and cars and trucks.  They sometimes have barricade lights on top of them to make them easier to see during the night.  They are their for your safety, not annoyance!

Reflective tape is the reflective sheeting that is put on different traffic safety equipment to make it more visible at night.  And the base option for your traffic drum really depends on what the manufacturer offers, but something between 2 and 40lbs is where most of them are.  Bases can either be thrown over the top of the drum or snapped on.
