Cone : What is it?
Cones are conical warning devices made of durable PVC plastic materials. They have wide square bases to keep them upright. They are made to withstand blows and pressures without getting deformed. They come in different heights and bright colors like red, yellow, and orange. They can be used individually or in groups to mark practice and training areas, hazardous sites, and road accident sites.

|Use: For barricading wet floors, choose cones with floor signs like “Caution” or “Caution: Wet Floor.” |
Holes: Choose cones with anchoring holes on each of their base corners for inserting the pegs or screws. These feature allows them to be set firmly on the ground.
Height: For training purposes in team drills, choose short cones to prevent the players from tripping or falling over them.
Flashing hazard lights: Choose safety cones that can be fitted with flashing hazard lights at their tips for warning oncoming traffic of a road accident up ahead.
