Taxiway closure barricades

When closing a taxiway for temporary maintenance, I was wondering what other airports use as a guideline for spacing the barricades?  The AC references they must be spaced smaller than the wing span of the smallest aircraft to be excluded.  It also mentions 4 feet, when spacing to exlude vehicles is a consideration.

We currently require interlocking barricades so that there is a solid barrier around the closed area. We also require every other barricade to be lighted, but we light them all for safety.
