With so many eager children running around the school grounds, safety measures are extremely important. One area of concern is busing. Ease confusion by assigning a color to each bus route and, using Mr. Chain plastic links and stanchions, create corresponding spaces near the bus loading zone for students to wait in. Not only does it make sure everybody gets on the right bus, it also keeps students away from the vehicles until they’re safely parked and ready for boarding. Additionally, driveways and streets near crossways can be blocked off to protect pedestrians, or cars can be routed in a particular direction to facilitate traffic flow.
One advantage with using Mr. Chain products is that they are lightweight, giving you plenty of flexibility. They can be put in place during high traffic times and removed afterwards, and can also be easily moved while in use. The safety barriers can be ordered in your school colors. We also offer stanchions and chains specifically designed for pedestrian crossings (pictured above). Visit MrChain.com to find a safety solution that works for you.

stanchion. The base is used to hold up the foam pylon pictured below. He

Mr. Chain supplies hundreds of feet of yellow chain to the
construction industry every year. There are some real advantages to using
plastic chain over yellow caution tape. Plastic chain is more durable and will
not snap or tear due to weather conditions. It is a great solution for ongoing
projects. In addition to being light weight and portable, plastic barrier chain
is also reusable and recyclable. And perhaps the most noticeable advantage, your work area will not look like a crime scene!
No caution tape here!

News), Dart, a fellow Michigan company, (Mason, MI), was featured for their
polystyrene recycling efforts. In the past the material was portrayed
negatively as many believed it was not recyclable. The article reveals this is
not true and honors the company for its progress on polystyrene recycling.
Polystyrene is a material Mr. Chain continues to use for
select products. These products (Ground Stakes, Reels, Edging and Fencing from
our retail line) are all #6 recyclable. In addition, Mr. Chain
makes an effort to buy recycled material and reuse any material waste in
