Protect People & Create Safe Foot Paths

With near-daily changes in COVID-19 protocols and continued unrest caused by recent variants, many states and localities are still unsure about the future of their 2022 event and construction seasons. But no matter what the New Year holds, you’ll need high-quality pedestrian barricade systems to direct foot traffic at your store, event or temporary building site. Trust SONCO to help you acquire and install the industry’s leading portable plastic barricade systems, sanitation stations and safety signage — all while meeting your operational objectives and budget targets.

Plastic Barricades: A Quick-Deploy Security Solution

Why Choose a Plastic Pedestrian Barricade Product?

You’re probably familiar with one of SONCO’s anchor products: the classic, heavy-duty steel barricade. We recommend these steel-strong barricades for high-security situations, prolonged deployment and consistent exposure to extreme weather. Steel barricades are made to withstand the outdoor elements and are heavy enough to maintain order in high-intensity crowd situations.

For festivals, retail venues and temporary building projects, we often suggest cost-effective plastic pedestrian barricades in high-viz colors and compact styles. Consider temporary plastic barriers for tasks like these and more: 

  • Establishing event perimeters
  • Setting up retail queues
  • Guiding people around closed areas
  • Roping off secure venue areas
  • Channelizing pedestrian traffic
  • Cordoning off spills or tripping hazards
  • Setting up parades & festivals

Built from tough, high-density polyethylene (HDPE), these event safety barriers are suitable for indoor or light outdoor use and are UV-stabilized to resist fading. For increased visibility, add custom reflective tape with your choice of branding or printed safety messages.

Features & Benefits of Plastic Pedestrian Safety Barriers

Pedestrian and employee safety is the primary concern when setting up any concert, festival or job site. Used for longitudinal channelizing, light-duty crowd control and demarcating walkways and boundaries, SONCO’s extendable, interlocking pedestrian barriers are easy to install, quick to move and compact to store or transport.

Experience the advantages of these feature-rich crowd control products:

  • Versatile t-feet for stability on all types of terrain
  • Bold colors that spotlight walkways and other touch-points
  • Subtle colors (white, gray, black) for a low-key look in more formal or professional settings
  • Durable, lightweight fabrication allowing one-person deployment and transport
  • Customizable options like reflective tape, personalized logo stickers, safety messaging or sponsor advertising
  • Easy-to-attach info boards, safety signs or sponsor ads
  • Built-in hook & loop systems for secure connection in any configuration
  • Variety of custom barrier sizes and convenient in-stock options.

To secure passersby, install time-tested equipment that separates and guides foot traffic around your project site or entertainment venue.

Add Safety With Pedestrian Barricade Systems

This equipment safeguards attendees, discourages crowd congestion and ensures safe entrance, exit and venue navigation.

Draw Added Attention to Barricade Systems & Queues

SONCO temporary barriers come in bright, noticeable colors, but many customers add reflective stripes, logo stickers or custom signage to their pedestrian safety barriers.
