300mm Lightweight Cone Plain Red
What is the purpose of a 300mm lightweight plain red cone?
Red traffic cones are probably the most popular ones around. They’ve been serving the public interest for nearly a century now, and everyone has seen some variation of the humble traffic cone at some point in their lives. It is recommended that this product be used as a highly visible marker for several purposes. The easy portability it affords means that it can be put up as a single piece to mark a spot – such as a parking space – or in a line to demarcate a particular ‘off-bounds’ area. It is regularly used by traffic police and road workers as caution indicators and barricades.
Where can a 300mm lightweight plain red cone be used?
This product is extremely versatile and can be used in any setting that requires either a spot marker or several of them in a row to indicate a restricted or unsafe area. They are ideal to guide vehicular traffic down a pre-defined path, and help immensely in traffic management. They can be used indoors as well - to mark off work areas or other dangerous zones where people are advised not to trespass. They can also be – and regularly are – used on sports fields and race tracks, apart from several other locations where non-permanent, physical and highly visible marking is required.
Who might use this product?
Traffic inspectors and other law enforcement personnel will find this an undeniably vital part of their range of safety equipment. Sports coordinators are sure to have huge stacks of these handy for races and such. Maintenance, janitorial and security staff will also find these a viable method of demarcating special areas meant for exclusive or zero access. Parking lot attendants will find them useful when reserving spaces for VIPs, or to mark off non-serviced areas in larger parking lots. In fact, anyone who need a visible marker for any purpose should have a stack of these at their disposal.
These cones are made from durable plastic in a bright, visible red colour and are available in a standard height of 300mm. Available in a minimum set of 5; additional cones can be purchased on the same order. The lightweight design ensures that several of them can be stacked and carried easily to where they are required. This product is guaranteed for one year on parts and labour, and is manufactured in the EU to the highest quality and safety standards.
Interesting facts about traffic cones
The first traffic cone was invented in 1914 by Charles P. Rudabaker of the United States. There were originally designed as pyramids made of wood. They were only introduced into the UK 44 years after their invention – in 1958, when the M6 went operational. David Morgan – of Burford, Oxfordshire, claims that in 1961, he invented the first plastic experimental version of the previously used wooden cone. Mr. Morgan also holds the Guinness World Record for the largest traffic cone collection – a whopping 500+ cones of all sizes, shapes and colours from around the world.
