At AABCO Barricade and Sign Co., safety is at the heart of our business. That is why we want our customers to have the correct products for the projects they handle. This blog post will help with that goal by explaining what Type I, II, and III barricades are and their best uses.
There are many barricades in Washington that are used by road crews and contractors alike, and they are broken into three categories. Type I is the first style, and they are folding barricades with one reflective panel. They generally are two feet wide with orange and white 45-degree stripes. They are recommended for pedestrian control and low-speed roads.
Type II barricade signs are very similar to Type I in that they are folding units but with two reflective orange and white panels rather than just one. They generally offer better visibility at night and are recommended for expressways and other high-speed roads.
The final models, known as Type III, are larger than the other two and have three reflective panels with alternating orange and white stripes. They are at least four feet wide and used for road closings.
