Increase the visibility of cable and chain barriers
Barriers consisting of a single cable or chain stretched between two posts - usually designed to keep vehicles and pedestrians from entering certain areas - can be difficult to see.
To reduce accidents and injuries, all cable and chain barriers need to be clearly marked.
- Use bright yellow paint for each post holding the cable or chain.
- Paint the cable/chain bright yellow or sleeve it in bright yellow plastic pipe (contrasting colors).
- At the center of each span between supporting posts, hang a bright yellow or orange sign from the chain or cable visible to the average driver or pedestrian.
- Continually monitor all markings and replace or repaint as necessary.
