Crowd control is a crucial part of managing an event and not doing so effectively can result in major safety concerns.
We have a range of event barriers that can match any occasion and still ensure the safety of participants.
For example, to manage crowds and queues at outdoor events, we have specific outdoor safety barriers that are extremely durable and can withstand harsh weather conditions.
For indoor events and dry weather, we have a range of retractable barriers and rope barriers. Tensabarrier® is our premium retractable barrier range and each barrier has lots of customisable options and market-leading features. QueueWay® retractable barriers offer a lower cost option but come with less premium features than Tensabarrier®.
If you’re looking for something with even more elegance then you could opt for a post and rope barrier, giving any environment a VIP and red carpet feel. Our Lawrence® rope barriers have been guiding customers for 140 years and in that time the Lawrence® brand has been recognised as the hallmark of the finest quality and manufacturing.
Queue management and crowd control at events
Queuing is an inevitable part of most events, whether it’s waiting for entry to your event or access to a specific attraction, queues will come in all shapes and sizes.
If there are areas that you need to temporarily restrict access to, or are only open to authorised personnel then wall mounted retractable barriers can help you to manage this. You can simply fix the mount to the wall and the webbing retracts and connects to a tape-end on another fixing point.
Why buy Tensabarrier® for your event?
Accessible for all
Events can be overwhelming for people with mobility issues and families with pushchairs. Tensabarrier® universal base has the lowest leading edge on the market, meaning that wheelchairs, pushchairs and suitcases can roll over with ease.
Custom printed webbing available
We offer a custom printing service available on all of our Tensabarrier® webbing. This means you can add a custom graphic, branding, or message to your retractable barrier. This could be used to help guide people into the right queue, for example a ‘priority’ webbing message, so people with priority tickets can enter the right queue. It can also be used to help build the atmosphere at your event. You could add your own branding so that people feel like they’re still part of your event, even when queuing.
The Tensabarrier belts are significantly thicker than other retractable stanchions, since they are manufactured from 0.89mm military grade fabric. This means they are less likely to deteriorate over time.
The Tensabarrier® has been developed to make sure it is at the optimum 970mm in height and is intentionally shorter than similar products to stop people climbing over or going under it. With a lower centre of gravity, it is also more difficult to knock over and less likely to catch on bags and clothes.
