Steel Barricades For Sale: Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Are steel barricades available in color?
A: Yes, our barricade collection includes colored, powder coating options.
High Visibility Colors
Orange and yellow are common colors for construction site safety, but there are many other occasions where custom colors may be useful.
Universities may want event barricades consistent with their school colors for track meets, basketball games, and job fares. Corporations may want crowd control barricades consistent with their brand colors.
Q: Are steel barricades weather-proof?
A: Hot-dipped, galvanized, and powder-coated barricades are weather-resistant and can sustain outdoor use.
Finish is Everything
There’s a bit of a difference between galvanized and powder-coating. Let’s take a look:
Pre-Galvanized: Barricade parts are dipped in zinc coating before assembly. This reduces the cost, but also drastically reduces the durability.
Post-Galvanized: The barricade was constructed completely before hot-dipped in a zinc coating. Although the cost may be higher, this finish offers the most durability to withstand all outdoor elements for years and years of use.
Powder-Coated: A dry powder is applied and heated to create a “skin” on the barricade’s exterior. This finish not only offers colorful options but also increased longevity to use and store outdoors.
Q: Are the feet removable?
A: Our barricade collection includes fixed feet barricades, as well as removable bridge or flat feet.
Feet are Important
Flat Feet Barricades: Best for use on even surfaces like pavement or walkways. Tripping hazards are avoided due to the flat nature of the barricade feet. Many flat foot barricades can be bolted to the ground for extra stability. Removable feet allow for easy storage and transportation.
Bridge Feet Barricades: For uneven surfaces like grassy fields or slightly hilly areas. Wide stance provides increased stability. Bridge feet barricades have one large foot and one small foot so they can be set up to easily interlock. Bridge feet are also removable
Fixed Feet Barricades: Easy to set up and break down - no assembly or tools required! New age design is great for use on grassy fields, sidewalks or pavement.
