Steel Barricades – When to use Which Barrier
Last updated Monday, May 30th, 2022
Crowd control barricades are used at a wide variety of locations, from events that draw tens of thousands of attendees to outdoor cafes serving only a few dozen patrons.
These interlocking steel barriers can be used to physically block large crowds from entering a no-access area, or to serve as a visual signpost which will channel smaller, peaceful crowds in the proper direction.
Heavy-duty crowd control barriers provide strength in situations where barriers are needed to prevent crowds from entering no-access areas, or keep spectators separated from participants. Major sporting and entertainment events, and major parades are examples of events at which these crowd control barriers are a constant presence.
Lighter-weight barriers are designed for situations where crowds are smaller and merely need to be channeled in the proper direction. The barrier creates line space or visually conveys a the border of an area. You’ll see this model of crowd control barrier at outdoor retail locations or restaurants with an outdoor seating area.
Whether the circumstance calls for heavy-duty or lightweight barriers, they are an essential tool for ensuring crowd control and crowd management.
