DisposaCone Now Approved Under MUTCD 6i for Temporary Traffic Control

Share Article

The compact but highly visible design of DisposaCone makes it ideal for private citizens, law enforcement agencies and emergency response teams as a temporary traffic control device. DisposaCone has been recently approved under section 6i of the federal Manual for Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD).

At 18-inches in height and highly visible in the widely recognized fluorescent safety orange color, DisposaCone is a retroreflective barricade that provides valuable public warning.

Public safety must never be compromised. It is imperative that a stranded citizen calling for help has full confidence that the first responder is prepared to address any emergency. Budget cuts, storage space or inconvenience should never be a determining factor in effectively equipping public safety vehicles. Now, under Section 6i of the federal Manual for Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD), DisposaCone is the nation’s first disposable, temporary control device approved for roadway use, emergency or otherwise.

“There are situations where safety cones are necessary but not always readily accessible,” said Chief James Roop of the Haymarket Virginia Police Department. “The DisposaCone fills a much needed void in the instance of an emergency situation.”

At 18-inches in height and highly visible in the widely recognized fluorescent safety orange color, DisposaCone is a retroreflective barricade that provides valuable public warning under most conditions and is not a cumbersome burden in vehicles or, most importantly, for department budgets:

  •     DisposaCones fold flat for easy and compact storage. First responders can store 36 cones – roughly two-thirds the height of a quart-sized bottle of motor oil – under almost any seat, a vehicle trunk or motorcycle saddlebags, providing much needed room for other vital equipment.
  •     DisposaCones are inexpensive, with a single 3-pack costing nearly half of just one traditional 18-inch tall cone. Law enforcement and other first responders are better prepared for situations at minimal cost, allowing scarce budgetary funds to be used at maximum efficiency.
  •     DisposaCones are convenient and efficient. With their adhesive butyl base, they attach well to any firm surface and won’t need to be put back upright or chased down in the wind. They can also be left standing for hours (up to 7 days) before you remove and recycle them after use.

MUTCD approval makes DisposaCone the ideal temporary barricade for private citizens, law enforcement agencies and emergency response teams who want to keep safety a priority while still saving space, money and time.
