Choosing the Right Road Cones and Temporary Traffic Barriers

Size: Road cones and barriers come in various sizes to accommodate different visibility and stability needs. Smaller cones (18-28 inches) are suitable for low-speed areas, while larger cones (28-36 inches) are ideal for high-speed zones and areas that require greater visibility.

Colour: High-visibility colours, such as fluorescent orange, are commonly used for road cones and barriers. However, other colours like yellow, green, or blue can be used to indicate specific purposes, such as pedestrian pathways or hazard warnings.

Material: PVC plastic is a popular material for road cones and barriers due to its durability, flexibility, and ability to withstand harsh weather conditions. Ensure the material used in the products is designed for longevity and performance.

Visibility: Reflective bands or collars on road cones and barriers improve their visibility, especially in low-light or night-time conditions. Check if the products you select have these features to ensure maximum visibility and safety.

Intended Use: Consider the specific application, such as traffic control, construction site safety, or event management, when choosing road cones and barriers. Different uses may require unique features or customisations to suit your requirements.


Proper Placement and Spacing of Road Cones and Barriers

Placement: Set up road cones and barriers strategically to clearly communicate the intended message, such as restricted areas, hazardous zones, or traffic directions. Ensure they are visible from a distance and placed on flat, stable surfaces to prevent them from tipping over.

Spacing: The ideal spacing between road cones and barriers depends on factors like the speed limit and road conditions. For low-speed zones (less than 40 km/h), a spacing of 5-7 meters is recommended, while high-speed zones (above 40 km/h) require a spacing of 15 meters or more.


Safety Standards and Regulations

Compliance with New Zealand safety standards and regulations, such as the Code of Practice for Temporary Traffic Management (CoPTTM), is crucial to ensure a safe and legally compliant work environment. Familiarise yourself with these guidelines and follow the recommended practices for using road cones and temporary traffic barriers in your specific context.
