Crowd Control Barrier
Our Crowd Control Barriers have been designed for use at events that need to accommodate for a larger crowd. Their flat feet feature (to prevent trip hazard) provides a quick and efficient solution in any situation where you need to divert patrons and the general public away from a designated area.

Crowd Control Barriers and Components
Purpose and use of crowd control barricades.
Interlocking steel barriers, when linked together, act as both a physical and psychological restraint, creating the sense of a dividing "solid wall." They are designed to physically discourage transgression and encourage directional order and crowd control. Our steel barricades are available in three lengths with the following overall dimensions:
|Length||39" (3.25 Ft.)||79" (6.5 Ft.)||98" (8 Ft.)|
|Height||43" (3.6 Ft.)||43" (3.6 Ft.)||43" (3.6 Ft.)|
|Weight||29 lb. (with Bridge Base)||44 lb. (with Bridge Base)||54 lb. (with Bridge Base)|
|Number of Uprights||6||14||18|
|Spacing Between Uprights||4 3/8"||4 3/8"||4 3/8"|
|Frame Thickness||16 gauge||16 gauge||16 gauge|
Traditional bridge bases are designed so that each steel barrier has one large base and one small base, located at the extreme ends of the frame.
This allows for four points of the base to remain in constant contact with the ground, as well as accommodating placement of steel barriers in both a straight line at various angles.
There are four types of bases:
- Bridge Base
- "U" Base
- Flat Base
- Wheel Base
Steel barriers are designed to be linked together via male hooks. A 30 degree bend in the male hook creates a positive interlock which prevents it from becoming disengaged.
Each male hook is a 5/8" steel rod, welded to the frame on both ends. Each female receptor is a 3/16" by 1.5" steel plate welded to the frame.
Three-Way Interlocking Barriers
The style and location of the hooks and receptors is designed to accommodate a three-way interlock set-up, in which three steel barriers are connected at one point (one at a right angle, while the other two are side-by-side in a straight line. )
This counter-bases the continuous line, and enables the creation of a reinforced double line (running parallel to the original line, supported by counter braces).
