Many people are not familiar with QPR’s Disposacone sold in the ShopWorx line. For many contractors, the idea of using a disposable cone doesn’t sound too cost-effective. But for many contractors doing small asphalt repairs or sealing driveways and parking lots, disposable cones are a convenient way for you to protect the work you’ve done while moving onto the next job at the same time. While sealer is drying, keeping traffic off asphalt is essential to preserving the look that property owners want to get. Contractors have a variety of ways of doing this, but often have to leave their cones on site for a day or more which forces them to come back to retrieve property and could lead to cones being stolen. Disposacones were developed because there was a need for a temporary barricade that wouldn’t blow away in the wind, cost effective enough to be left onsite while you went off to new projects.
Now, QPR ShopWorx Disposacones have been approved under Section 6 of the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD), which is the standard for signs, signals, and pavement markings in the United States and administered by the Federal Highway Administration.
At 18 inches in height and engineered in the widely recognized fluorescent safety orange color, Disposacone offers compact size for easy storage and access in all vehicle types plus the high visibility you expect from traffic control devices. In fact, 25 Disposacones can easily fit under most car seats and are obviously a great alternative to traditional cones for the right users. When used with QPR ShopWorx’s caution tape, Disposacones can insure that your work is preserved after you leave the jobsite.
For those who have a need for more traditional traffic cones, QPR ShopWorx stocks an entire line of cones, channelizers, and drums with a variety of sizes, shapes, and reflectability. Please visit the Traffic Control section of our website for more details.
