Why we call our Airport Barricades “Premier”

There are a lot of companies out there selling plastic barricades, so what makes OTW barricades the best choice? I’m glad you asked! The AR10x96 was designed to exceed FAA requirements and the design features are unrivaled by competitor barricades.

Engineering the AR10x96

Our founder invented the low profile airport construction barricade and brought the product into popular use. We’ve been producing a version of the low-pro barricade for over 20 years, which is why it’s the most widely used!


We design and build safety barricades for a wide variety of commercial applications.

We serve a variety of industries but all of our customers share one thing in common. They want the best barricades! When it comes to crowd control people can’t get enough of the Billboard Barricade. Once they have a few they just need more! We understand though. It’s hard to compare between metal barricades and our colorful alternative – not only do they look so much better they are actually easier to set up and store.
