Traffic Barricades & Crowd Control

What types of traffic barricades do you sell?
Easy Rack sells traffic barricades in two basic designs. Poly cade barricades are made to resemble small “walls” that can be used to block off areas from people and vehicles. They can be used as standalone units, or they can be put together in tandem to make an artificial wall spanning a roadway, runway, or entire parking lot. Larger barrier traffic barricades are barrels that are constructed from special materials that can be filled with sand, gravel, or even water to make them heavy and resistant to large vehicle impact.

How can these traffic barricades be used?
They can be used to control both vehicle and human foot traffic in almost any public or commercial space. We see them almost every day in parking lots and roadways under construction. We also see them used to block off areas where hazardous materials are stored. Chemical companies typically use some sort of traffic barricade to prevent people and equipment from being damaged by exposure to dangerous materials and industrial bi-products. Many forms of machinery in large factories can also be potentially unsafe if untrained employees, clients, or visitors to the factory get to close.

Amusement parks frequently use orange traffic barricades to keep underage children away from areas intended only for adolescents and adults. In the material handling industry, some of our biggest poly cade traffic barricade customers are construction companies. These companies often buy large numbers and various sizes of both types of traffic barriers to actually create traffic control pathways on construction sites.

Because they are used much more outside than inside facilities, traffic barricades and post protectors are rust proof and UV resistant, making them both rain and sun proof as much as current technology permits.

What colors and sizes do these traffic barricades come in?
Orange traffic barriers are the brightest and most visible choices, and they are made even more visible to people by means of reflective striping that works as a mirror to natural and artificial light. In some settings the bright orange and silver color, however, looks unsightly. If you are setting up traffic control for a public official’s motorcade, for example, you don’t him or her to have the red carpet treatment, not the orange barrel treatment on the way to the speech. A granite or white barrier is more appropriate for such an event.

Other areas that often prefer traffic barricades in granite or white colors include corporate headquarters, public universities, libraries, and parks. Construction companies typically prefer orange or yellow as these are industry-standard safety colors.

How big are your traffic barricades?
Smaller poly cade traffic barriers can be as small as 70 lbs., while larger barrel barricades can be as heavy as 3,000+ when filled with sand. We will help you choose the right style, size, and filler if necessary, so do not hesitate to ask for advice from our team of specialists.
