The AR24x96 Low-Profile Barricade is most commonly used to designate large airside construction zones, that is, work taking place within the secure zone of airports around active aircraft. Taller and heavier than our 10-inch low-profile barricade, the AR24x96 is more visible to pilots in larger airplanes.
Built-in interlocking pins allow these airport construction barricades to connect without additional hardware and each barricade features specially designed fill-holes to accommodate hazard warning lights. Medium-height barricades also work extremely well in low-speed construction zones, parking lots, and specialty applications where federal highway construction zone standards do not apply.
The AR24x96 weighs only 35 pounds empty, but once ballasted with water can weigh up to 375 pounds. At 24 inches high, this advantageous height-to-weight ratio gives the AR24x96 enhanced staying power during inclement weather and high-wind conditions. Realizing that airport construction zones can shift rapidly, we designed this medium-height barricade with molded lower forklift points to ease relocation, even when filled with water. Like our other airport safety products, the AR24x96 is specifically designed to meet the needs of large and small airports while exceeding FAA safety compliance standards.
