Arrow Board Trailers: The Ultimate Solution for Traffic Control

Traffic control is an essential aspect of any construction project, roadwork, or event that requires road closures. With the increasing number of road accidents, it has become crucial to manage traffic flow effectively, ensuring workers’ and public safety. That’s where arrow board trailers come in. These portable mobile devices have revolutionized managing traffic, making it easier, safer, and more efficient.

 What Are Arrow Board Trailers?

Arrow board trailers are simple yet effective devices to route traffic in a construction zone, during special events, or around emergencies. The arrow board trailers we offer at Barricades and Signs are manufactured by Wanco and offer super bright LED that re-direct traffic. The Arrow Board Trailers are visible from a vast distance and can be easily towed onsite for a quick and easy setup.

Why Are Arrow Board Trailers Essential?

Arrow board trailers provide several benefits that make them essential for traffic control.

  1. Increased Visibility: The bright LED displays on arrow board trailers make them highly visible, even in low-light conditions. This makes them an effective way of directing traffic, ensuring drivers are aware of road closures and can take appropriate action.
  2. Portability: The trailers can be easily towed to any location, making them an ideal solution for managing traffic in construction zones, events, or emergencies.
  3. Customizable: Arrow board trailers can be customized to display various messages or arrows, making them an effective tool for communicating specific information to drivers.
  4. Safety: Arrow board trailers help to reduce the risk of accidents by directing traffic away from construction zones, road closures, and other hazardous areas. This ensures that workers and the public are kept safe while roadwork is carried out.

How to Choose the Right Arrow Board Trailer

Like anything, there are lot of options to consider when choosing the right arrow board trailer for your needs. .

  1. Size: Usually, the size of the arrow board trailer is the most significant factor to consider. The larger the diversion and faster the road speeds, the more prominent the board should be. Smaller panels are suited to slower traffic, like in residential areas or special events. 
  2. Customization and LED Patters: Depending on what you’re diverting traffic around or if the arrow board trailer needs to be used in different scenarios, a message board like the SMC 5000 might be better. 
  3. Portability: Arrow board trailers are designed for maximum portability, but they might not be suitable depending on where the final location is. Ensure you’ve factored in the extra space they’ll need to occupy.  
  4. Durability: Arrow board trailers must operate in the extreme weather we get in Western Canada, and the Wanco products we use can withstand the elements.
