Plastic Barricade

It can be hard to research a product when you don’t even know the various names it has.  For example, lets say you have a project that calls for (200) Plastic A Frame Barricades 8/8×24″ EG 12 Guage Legs.  Most people have no idea what this means.  I’m here to help you understand, you see a-frame is a barricade that looks like an ‘A’ when standing up and viewed from the side.

There are multiple kinds of a-frames barricades, but the basics you need to know to be able to talk to someone about purchasing these would be what it’s made of out (plastic, plywood, plastic boards iron legs?), the type of sheeting needed and if it’s only needed on the top or needed on the top and bottom?  And then the size of the sheeting as well as if you need 12 guage (thicker) or 14 guage (skinnier) legs.  Once you know all this you are ready to start comparing prices.
