Traffic cones are approved as channelizing devices or to be more precise a “tool used to temporarily guide traffic on public roads” a definition accepted US wide by the Manual for Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD).
Traffic cones are considered to be extremely portable, durable with bright colors. They are undoubtedly great attention catchers, therefore these safety or traffic cones are your perfect tool in building up safety measures to the highest standards. This being said, traffic cones are also safe for cars as they are flexible enough not to damage cars accidentally.
As they are a very common safety device, traffic cones can be seen basically everywhere where there is a construction, more precisely from high danger zones to crowded streets, and they are even possible to set up in corridors and hallways. Whether it is outdoors or indoors, these devices are very helpful in keeping work hazards at bay, with primarily focusing on prevention and danger avoidance. Let’s see how these traffic cones can be useful:
Controlling traffic flow – road cones
Based on general utilization this is the most common way traffic cones are used. Highly conspicuous and easily recognizable, these traffic devices do a great job providing an immediate warning about upcoming road obstructions or even designating proper traffic lanes. Here at Buyers Barricades we’re also offering traffic cones with high visibility and reflective features to make them just as effective and useful at night or in limited visibility.
Hazards and dangerous situations – warnings
Pedestrians or motorists can be warned to proceed with special caution, using safety cones, a version of traffic cones. The sight of such safety cone is warning enough especially on the road and construction sites, for people to avoid possible dangers.
If you find yourself needing to mark off limited access areas or crowd control – bystanders or visitors alike, you can use traffic cones. These cones combined with barricades are used to temporarily block areas and establish proper boundaries. Additionally, these devices are portable so you can use them as needed and since they never expiry you can store them for later usage.
Traffic Cones with Signs
If you want to turn your safety cones to instant sign posts or use our reflective strips to make a cone more visible along with the sign.
Using these very much cost effective cones or even floor stands, you can provide safety warnings and messages for people. Use them in corridors, hallways to inform people of slippery and wet surfaces, closed off areas just to name a few. In these areas cones are just as easily turned into safety signs, by mounting the s body on top of a cone, making it more noticeable to visitors and employees.
