Traffic barricades – breaking down the confusion

traffic barricades, type 1 barricades, type 2 barricades, type 3 barricadesThere is a lot of confusion when picking out what type of traffic barricade is best.  One of the first things to decide is the type of barricade you want.  A ‘type 1’ or ‘type I’ barricade has one panel, a ‘type II’ barricade has two panels, and a ‘type III’ barricade has three panels.  The type 1 and type 2 are not nearly as wide as the type 3; the type I and II barricades range from 24 – 36″ wide, while the type 3 barricades are between 48 – 144″ wide.

Type of sheeting (EG, HI, or DG) and whether you want sheeting on both vs. one side also needs to be considered, and most likely depends on the specs of the job.  Barricades can be either completely plastic, plastic boards with metal legs, or plywood boards with metal legs.  The options you choose can highly influence pricing, so be sure to ask the price difference between one feature and the next.
