Types of Barricades: Barrier vs Barricade
Do you need highly portable crowd control barricades that allow you to direct people and cars away from a job site or road construction area? Our type II traffic barricades look like a traffic sawhorse, and you can fold them up to easily transport or store them until their next use. These PVC plastic crowd control barricades have high-visibility reflective sheeting on the top and bottom panels, along with UV inhibitors to reduce fading.
You can also choose our type III crowd control barricades, which can legally be used to close a road. These combination PVC plastic and metal crowd control barricades have at least 270 square inches of reflective sheeting, making them an excellent option for high-traffic road safety barriers. Need something a little more substantial? Wondering what is a jersey barrier and why jersey barricades may cost more than a standard sawhorse traffic barricade? Well a plastic jersey barrier can be filled with water to increase the jersey barrier weight creating a vehicle impact resistant wall. If you are looking for jersey barriers for sale near me, look no further as we have multiple styles to choose from.
Interlocking crowd control event barricades are always popular, and we have them available in steel and plastic styles. These metal barricades for sale are 100% weather-resistant, no matter which style you choose. Our galvanized steel interlocking barricades (which make them weather resistant since wooden barricades rust) come with a welded sign and carrying handles for convenient setup and teardown processes. Meanwhile, our premium interlocking plastic crowd control barricades come with ADA-compliant ergonomic handrails and double-sided locks that allow you to set them up on uneven ground.
We even offer the top-of-the-line Visiontron stand mount crowd control barricade. These metal traffic barricades have quick-deploying legs that conveniently fold up for storage, and their 65-foot belts are the longest you’ll find anywhere. If you need to set up and take down metal pedestrian barriers quickly, you won’t find a better option!
Along with our extensive selection of crowd control barricades, we offer many accessories to help you make the most of your setup. For instance, if you’re looking to make your barriers even more noticeable than they already are, you can purchase our ten-pack of barricade safety lights. These weather-resistant lights include high-visibility LED bulbs which you can set to a steady light or flashing setting. We also can source various barricade signs and crowd control barrier covers.

We have many types of barricade fencing for sale including plastic water barricades, folding pedestrian barriers, and event barriers.

What is a Metal Barricade?
A metal barricade is typically made from galvanized steel for weather resistance. Other barricades can be made from wood (which often do not last long, are heavy, and prone to rusting) or plastic (which are lightweight and potentially costly). Metal barricades are also often called bike rack barriers due to the metal slats that can fit bike wheels between them.
How Much Do Metal Barricades Weigh?
You want a metal barricade to be heavy enough to discourage guests from moving them while being light enough for you to move around. Most come with interlocking barrier methods to help prevent unauthorized movement. Our standard bike rack barricade weight just under 50 lbs.
How Tall are Metal Barricades?
As with most crowd control devices you want a barricade to be tall enough to be seen without being a tripping hazard, yet short enough to be cost effective and portable. The average height for crowd control barriers is around 40″ to 3.5′ tall.
What are Control Barriers?
All barriers are meant to control the flow of people or vehicles. A control barrier is just another name for a barricade. Typically such barricades have a designated use such as traffic control barrier or event control barricade. Each type of barrier has a slightly different design or material based on the designated use. Traffic control barriers must be highly visible and sturdy, while event or pedestrian barricades favor portability.
What is a Type 2 Barricade?
Some of the most popular traffic barriers are designed by type. They are the portable reflective barriers you seen on the road typically with while and orange stripes. These barriers have legs and bars for the sheeting, either one, two, or three of them. Type 2 barricades indicate there are two reflective bars.
What are Barricade Lights?
While most crowd control barricades are highly visible due to being reflective, sometimes you need added visibility during low light situtations. Barricade lights are typically LED bulbs that can attach to barriers for steady or flashing light patterns.
