While traditional steel barricades are a front-runner for perimeter and crowd security, some venues call for stylish upgrades, understated elegance or hi-viz colors. Not only are powder-coated barriers field-tested for safety and strength, but they also lend a signature look to important events and high-security environments. From classic black to safety-compliant orange, each powder-coated steel barrier comes with a hard-wearing coating that enhances your setting while protecting attendees and withstanding harsh conditions.

Orange Barricades Prevent Accidents at Warehouses & Factories
Orange barricades shine during heavy crowd control situations but are also a staple for warehouses and factories. According to ANSI standard Z535.1-2022, the color orange identifies dangerous equipment or machinery that could shock, injure, crush or cut workers.
It is also used on labels or signs to warn of hazards that may result in injury or death, especially when the overall risk is not extreme enough to warrant red “danger” messaging. Safety-orange barriers are used similarly in factories and busy work environments — to caution employees and guests about potential dangers or unauthorized entry.
SONCO recommends factories and warehouses utilize orange barricades to close off dangerous equipment or demarcate hazards. Specific applications may include:
- Marking low-clearance levels.
- Restricting equipment access.
- Cordoning off wet or slick floors.
- Separating pedestrian corridors from work zones.
- Delineating work areas where forklifts & equipment are in use.
- Alerting passersby to potential hazards.
- Preventing guest access to secure sites.
