Road safety barricades come in three general classifications: type III, type II, and type I. You will see them being used anywhere work vehicles are present, in the case of road closings, frequently stationed around a work area with heavy equipment, and to block off/designate detours. Each variety of barricade comes with its own specially designed characteristics, giving each precise advantages. Manufacturers make these barricades differently to suit a variety of purposes
There are a handful of barricade types used for numerous reasons. Some of these types include the following:
- Expanding length barricades
- A-frame barricades (type I and type II barricades)
- Traffic cones
- Construction barrels/drums/traffic barrels
- Jersey barriers
- Safety signs
For clarification, let’s take a look at type lll barricades.
What Are Type lll Barricades?
Type lll barricades are used for safety related purposes such as road construction or to block excavations. Flashing lights can be fitted onto this type of barricade, as with both type I and type II. Type I, ll, and type lll barricades can be flattened/folded when not in use.
Board lengths for type III barricades usually equate to 12 feet, 10 feet, 8 feet, 6 feet, or 4 feet. The barricades are typically available in metal or plastic – new and improved versions of old-school wooden barricades.
The Benefits of Type lll Barricades
On either side of the frame, these barricades have three reflective rails, making them highly visible. Their available flashing light accessory makes them more noticeable than barricades that don’t have the benefit of any light. These barricades are likely to stand out, even at night. The fact that they are collapsible makes them transported in an easier manner than bulkier, non-collapsible barricades made of steel, hard plastic, etc. Compared to type I and type II barricades, the type III barricade is sturdier.
For all weather conditions, they are suitable thanks to their durable components. In most cases, they are set up quickly and easily. Some type III barricades are breakaway models, in the interest of traffic safety.
Applications of Type lll Barricades
As already mentioned, barricades are placed where heavy equipment is being used, to detour traffic, to completely close off access to a road or building, and more. No matter what the type, the basic purpose of a barricade is to protect drivers and work people from possible hazards. Other barricade options include traffic barrels, portable fences, crowd control event barriers, portable event barriers, and others. Specific barriers suit precise needs.
Type I, type II, and type lll barricades are perfect in urban areas, suburban areas, roadways, or for public work projects in parks, etc.
