Road Cones as part of Your Traffic Management Strategy

Clear markings, instructions and wayfinding are central to a good traffic management strategy and traffic cones can be an important part of that. They can be used in many situations and are an ideal way of marking temporary hazards, such as road works or potholes. Traffic cones are also perfect to mark lanes, prevent parking or restrict access.

With such a range of uses, it is important to be flexible. There is no one-size-fits-all in workplaces, so we supply a variety of cones to suit many diverse needs. The portable nature of cones allows them to be repeatedly used in different circumstances, whenever the need arises. Choose from a range of designs to find the option that suits your requirements.

Plastic Cones for Durability and Visibility

Suitable to be placed in or out of doors, our traffic cones will be resistant to the elements. With a number of different materials available within our selection, all are robust enough to provide long lasting use. Additionally, many traffic cones have a weighted base to provide stability in adverse weather conditions.

We know safety is the most important issue for you when planning a traffic management strategy. To ensure cones are easy to see there are 3 levels of visibility to consider:

  • Level 1 - Traffic cones in a bright, eye-catching colour (traffic cones blue, green, red and yellow) for use indoors or where good light conditions will be present.

  • Level 2 - Traffic cones with a reflective element for use in adverse weather conditions or poor light.

  • Level 3 - Reflective cones used in conjunction with a safety light. These are ideal for use at night or when roadside workers are nearby.

Cone Signs for Temporary Messaging

Occasionally you might find it necessary to place temporary signs around your site due to roadworks or weather problems. A quick and easy way to do this is to attach a sign to a traffic cone. Our signs feature a number of regularly used symbols and can be customised subject to minimum order quantities.

Parking Cones and Car Park Safety

Cones should be one of the key elements of any traffic management strategy. Poorly managed vehicles can increase the risk of serious and even fatal accidents. Using cones in your outside spaces and car parks will instantly alert drivers and pedestrians of no go areas and minimise the chance of a mishap.

Traffic Cone Regulations In The UK

The use of road cones and other temporary traffic control devices is covered in The Traffic Signs (Temporary Obstructions) Regulations 1997. These cover the use of traffic cones and signs to ensure safety in areas where there are obstructions to be navigated by vehicle users, such as when work is taking place on a site, or when bad weather is causing temporary obstructions.

It is important to use cones, and other traffic warning signs, safely and correctly. Primarily, traffic cones are used as a warning when there is a temporary potential hazard, or to prevent vehicles from entering or parking in a temporarily restricted area. If you have an area on your business premises that requires long-term restrictions on parking, waiting or loading, you may need to add parking restriction signs to ensure that users are aware of the situation.

Using Traffic Cones To Mark Hazards

Road cones can be a good way to warn both pedestrians and motorists of temporary hazards, such as slippery or uneven surfaces, potholes or subsidence, or areas where potentially dangerous equipment is being used. If you are marking off a dangerous area, ensure that the equipment you use makes it clear how far the area extends. You can do this by using an adequate amount of traffic cones, or sometimes by using a retractable barrier between cones. Adding signs to warn of the nature of the hazard is always a good idea, when possible.

Remember to remove cones promptly when the hazard is no longer causing a danger. This is important because people will start to ignore cones if they are obviously no longer relevant, causing problems if the hazard reappears. For example, if cones are marking off an icy walkway, and the ice has clearly melted, pedestrians will cut through the cones and use the walkway. If it then refreezes, they may have become used to ignoring the cones, and continue to cut through, potentially causing a slip or fall.
