An orange cone just isn’t enough...

Traffic cones - also called pylons, witches' hats, road cones, highway cones, safety cones, channelising devices or construction cones - are cone-shaped markers placed on roads or footpaths to temporarily redirect traffic in a safe manner – so says Wikipedia. But do they redirect traffic in a safe manner? They are not designed to stop an errant vehicle or protect roadside workers, they are designed to be delineation markers – and that's all they should be used for.

Don’t put your people or equipment at risk by relying on orange cones. Talk to us about our range of temporary barriers which are tested and approved for speeds up to 100kph – when installed correctly.
