When to use Traffic Drums

Our construction barrels are used for traffic control to protect road users. Especially on high speed roadways, indicating a change in traffic flow is crucial. In non-roadway applications, traffic drums can be used to manage pedestrian flow during events, providing a physical barrier that directs movement and enhances safety.

What's the difference between traffic cones and traffic drums?


Traffic cones are lighter and more portable, often used for quick, temporary traffic directions due to their ease of movement. Traffic drums are larger and more stable, better suited for long-term use in high-traffic areas or where greater visibility and durability are required.

How heavy are these traffic drums?


Our traffic drums weigh 8 lbs on their own and 24 lbs with the rubber tire ring.

Can I Rent Equipment For Multiple Projects Or Locations At One Time?


Yes, you can rent equipment for various projects and sites. There is no restriction on the extent or number of rentals – simply place your order and the equipment will be available for your use. Moreover, for added convenience, the rented equipment can be returned to any one of our locations.

How many traffic drums do I need for a project?


The number of traffic drums required per project depends on several factors, including the length of the area to be marked, the specific layout of the road or work zone, local regulations, and the level of traffic expected. Generally, traffic drums should be spaced closely enough to clearly guide traffic and provide continuous delineation, typically around 20 to 40 feet apart, but exact spacing can vary based on jurisdictional guidelines and the specific conditions of the project.
