Our Engineer Grade Prestriped Barricade Tape is an economical and effective way to mark the end of a road, dead ends, hazardous areas and even vehicles. It is a vivid tape and is clearly visible at night because of its reflective properties. The tape is retro reflective meaning it concentrates light and returns it back to the source which in most cases are car headlights. Our engineer grade prestriped tape exceeds ASTM D-4956 Type 1 standards.
This tape is available in either a left slant (L6) or a right slant (R6). The slant generally directs traffic either to the left or right.
We have a separate article that goes over the MUTCD regulations governing barricade tape. The article also shows you when to use a left slant and when to use a right slant. Click here to view our article on barricade tape regulations.
The image below shows each.
As you can see, the slant starts at the bottom and goes either right or left. Also, the tapes are available in either a white/orange or a white/red. The 6 in L6 or R6 means that the stripes are 6″ wide. The stripes are placed at a 45 degree angle.
Because of its unique look and design, reflective barricade tape is also used to mark items like dumpsters, containers, bollards, fences, gate arms, loading docks, heavy equipment, cranes and more.
