Retracta-Cade® in use in Queens, NY

The Retracta-Cade Quick Deployment Barricade has shown itself to be an important addition to a fire department’s fire gear arsenal and should be considered standard issue for every vehicle.

Fire departments use these barricades to provide instant fire hose protection while fighting fires or during, vehicle accidents, hazardous spills and for general crowd control. Outdoor-resistant elements such as aluminum ensure that Retracta-Cade units withstand tough wear and tear from department use.

LED lights and reflective tape make the barricade more visible at night; and sign panels can display messages such as “FIRE DEPT. – KEEP BACK,” “FIRE LINE – DO NOT CROSS,” “DANGER! KEEP OUT,” or “HAZMAT INCIDENT.” Custom printed sign panels are also available.

Resistant materials such as aluminum ensure Retracta-Cade crowd control barriers withstand tough wear and tear from department usage during firefighting, cordoning off streets, responding to vehicular accidents, hazmat spills, and other on-demand rapid deployment situations.

The Retracta-Cade has shown itself to be an important addition to every department’s tactical fire gear arsenal and should be standard issue for every vehicle.

Testimonial: North Babylon Fire Department, Long Island NY

Practicality is the biggest thing with the Retracta-Cade. They’re lightweight and you don’t need a lot of room to store them. They sit right in the back of the North Babylon Fire Police Vehicle very nicely without taking up too much room.

They’re very versatile – you can use them to block off the entrance to a shopping center, close an intersection, divert traffic, there’s a multitude of uses.
The Retracta-Cade seems to be made very well, and it looks really impressive!
