Quality is Paramount

We take pride in the design and construction of each barrier we sell. We're proud to say that all of our plastic barricades are made in the USA and are 100% recyclable.

Our barricades are composed of superior grades of plastic known for strength and durability. They are also UV-resistant, have high impact and melt strength and resist stress cracks and fracturing. This means our barricades stand up to weather and transport.

High Density Polyethylene can be recycled into things like plastic lumber, tables, roadside curbs, benches, truck cargo liners, trash bins and other durable goods.

Form Follows Function

We employ advanced molding techniques to create barricades that are lightweight and easy to move when empty, but which are exponentially heavier once ballasted with water or sand. Once filled, most of our barriers become up to 10x heavier and nearly immovable.

We offer a one-year manufacturing warranty and all of our products are designed to last a minimum of eight years. We work closely with the factories that produce our barricades so you end up with reliable barricades every time you order!

Community Care

OTW was built on the idea that great products not only meet needs but also serve the community at large. We're based in Salt Lake City and our founder Marc Christensen was a firm believer in supporting the work of non-profits in the city. We've donated barricades to a wide range of groups. When it comes to our crowd control barricade, non-profits not only receive the value that barricades can provide, they also gain an advertising platform to showcase their sponsors and attract more donations.

  • What Does Your Barricade's Carbon Footprint Look Like?

    Plastic barricades made from recycled plastic carry a much smaller carbon footprint than its clunky predecessor, the steel barricade.  When your steel barricade is manufactured it goes through a process called galvanization. The galvanization process has been linked worldwide to environmental hazards. Although controls have been put in place in most modernized countries to curb this effect, those controls cost money to the supplier - so if you find a low priced steel barricade most likely i...
