How to Make Your Traffic Safety Products Last Longer

Friday, September 6, 2013 By: admin

tool boxTraffic safety products are temporary in nature and are designed to be replaced every now and again, however this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take care of your equipment to make it last as long as possible.  Keeping them clean is the first step in helping to prolong the life, but here are some more specific tips:

Plastic Products: When your plastic products (such as traffic cones, plastic traffic barricades etc) are stored, try to keep them out of direct sunlight.  This will help to stop the breakdown and fading of the PVC plastic and reflective sheeting.  Otherwise the sheeting will become brittle faster.

palletsWood Barricades: If your wood barricades are in shrink wrapped pallets keep them in a dry place.  This is because if the pallets end up getting wet and don’t have a chance to dry the dampness will turn to mold ruining the barricades.  If you are going to put them in storage, you must remove the shrink wrap.

Stacking products: Most traffic safety products (besides delineators) are stack-able with or without the bases attached which saves a bunch of space.  However the weight of the bases can cause the products to get stuck together depending on a) the weight of the base and b) how long they have been store for.

Type 3 Barricades made out of what?

type 3 barricades, type 3 barricade, traffic barricade, plastic traffic barricades, plastic traffic barricade, traffic safety products, traffic safety storeWhether you know it or not, type 3 barricades are either made out of plastic or wood.  And it isn’t as simple as just that.  You can also get traffic barricades that are either ‘blow molded’ or ‘injection molded’.

The difference is that one is ‘filled’ with plastic in the panel while the other panel is hollow.  This means that if a panel that is filled is hit with a car, chances are it will hold the impact better than a panel that is hollow.

type 3 barricade, type 3 barricades, traffic barricade, traffic barricades, plastic traffic barricades, plastic traffic barricadeHave you seen a type 3 barricade that is a color besides white?  I recently posted about arrow boards and the fact that I have never seen one with colors other than yellow.  When I say white, I am talking about the actual color of the boards.

There are type 3 plywood barricades out there, but from what I remember they are all painted while.  The legs, if they are steel, seem to be some sort of silver color while the plastic legs are always white.
