Rubbermaid Commercial Products identified a new product category, Emergency Barriers. The design needed to be cost effective, durable, easy to use and reflect RCP quality.

The compact, lightweight design allows for an amazing transformation from a small storable volume to a 13 foot physical barrier. To prevent the unit from being blown down by the wind, a large amount of open area was needed in the panels. This open area was leveraged in a diagonal pattern that serves a dual purpose, as a warning icon and making the unit impossible to be climbed by curious kids.
