Description: Metal Barricade Replacement Base: Classic Flat Base
The steel barrier flat base has gained popularity lately especially when steel crowd control barriers are used as portable pedestrian handrails when large crowds walk parallel to the barriers.
Interlocking steel barricades with flat bases are among the most common barriers used by the New York City Department of Transportation to direct walking traffic around construction and maintenance sites.
A hot-dip galvanized steel barrier flat base is durable and long-lasting
Hot-dip galvanizing is the process of coating steel with a layer of zinc by immersing the metal in a bath of molten zinc at a temperature of around 450 °C.
Hot-dip galvanizing provides long-term corrosion protection and a longer lifespan to our steel barricade bases.
Rubber inserts protect flooring
Rubber inserts for steel barrier flat bases come as a standard feature on flat bases. Rubber inserts on flat bases provide additional friction and reduce sliding which results in flooring protection, making flat base steel barriers an excellent choice for indoor use.
Rubber inserts are most effective when they are wider at the bottom than at the top.
