These barricades are smaller and easier to handle than our standard 8.5 ft units. Made from the from the same 16 gauge hot-dipped galvanized steel as the 8.5 ft unit, these barricades are just as durable and weather resistant but are more easily handled by a single person. The smaller length also allows better stowage for trucking, lowering shipping costs. Designed with 21 uprights for maximum rigidity the uprights are fully inserted into the frame before welding giving the barricade extraordinary strength. You can choose from 2 leg options for either rough or flat terrain (feet are removeable if needed). With the flat feet option you can bolt it to the ground to create a more permanent barricade. These barricades interlock using the industry standard hook and half-loop fastening system so you can create a crowd control barrier of any length.
