What are crowd control barriers?

Crowd control barriers, or simply ‘crowd barriers’ as they are also known, are normally used to keep spectators at events safe and ensure everyone has a good time. They may also be used to create security checkpoints e.g. for ticketing and bag checks and to encourage people to form an orderly queue – to avoid queue-jumping.

At sporting events, such as running or cycling races, crowd control barriers may be used to line the track or roadside, in an unbroken chain, to prevent deliberate or unintentional crowd ‘participation’.
