LC Features

Work Area Channelizer Drums and Bases are engineered to withstand the harshest traffic, construction and weather conditions. Because of their durability, they’re very cost effective. They’re also easy to set up and take down. The innovative snap-on bases lock secure and tight to the drum. The base’s bottom design hugs tightly to road surfaces.

Barrels can be purchased with or without sheeting applied. Sheeting is available in High Intensity, High Intensity Prismatic, Engineer Grade and Diamond Grade.

• Durable, blow-molded construction
• Low-density polyethylene
• 5-Tier Telescoping Design
• Built-in carrying handle on drum and base
• Positive-locking grip between drum and base
• Four available base options with anti-rotation knob
• Shift-resistant base design
• Light attachment on both sides
• UV stabilized bright orange polyethylene is formulated to resist fading and discoloration
• The barrel body and bottom section both incorporate a non-circular cross section to inhibit rolling after impact
• B400A is designed with a larger, flared base. This design allows us to increase the flat edges around base to offer more resistance to rolling when knocked over and lying on its side.
