Traffic barricades don’t need to be fancy—they just have to work. And it doesn’t get much simpler (and more economical) than Econocade plastic barricades. Easy to transport and even easier to set up, these maintenance-free path blockers feature a solid wall design. Because their legs and boards are molded in one piece, these barricades will never need to be adjusted, tightened, or straightened.

Don’t let their simple appearance fool you, though: our barricades are impact resistant and durable enough to hold their own in the toughest construction sites and on the busiest roads. Barricades come pre-assembled with your choice of 12” x 24” or 8” x 24” top and bottom panels. They are available with engineer grade, high intensity, or diamond grade reflective sheeting, or no sheeting at all. Regardless of the selected finish, names can easily be stenciled directly onto the boards.

How to Install

“Type 1” refers specifically to barricades with one reflective railing, while “Type 2” refers to barricades with two reflective railings. Type 1 is better suited for blocking off pedestrian walkways, while (the more visible) Type 2 is a better choice for blocking off roadways.

Each barricade features two mounting receptacles for flashing lights. These are sold separately; explore our product catalog to see Transline’s selection of solar wireless lights.

Nota bene: the two sides of each barrier are mirror images of one another; this is by design. according to the MUTCD, barriers should be placed so that the stripes point in the direction that motorists are supposed to pass the obstruction. For example, if a rightmost lane is to be blocked, then the barricade should be set up so that the stripes point towards the left. Please by mindful of this rule as you select which side of the barrier will face oncoming traffic!
