What are Crowd Control Barriers used for?
Crowd control barriers can keep pedestrians in line at an event, help to cordon off out of bounds type areas, mark areas for maintenance employees and many more. Crowd control barriers are ideal for many environments and situations and can be deployed in an instant. Crowd Control Barriers cover a variety of workplace solutions including portable barriers, chain post sets, retractable belt barriers (airport style queuing barriers), steel crowd control barriers and expanding portable barriers. These barriers can help in a variety of ways by maintaining excellent health and safety standards.
What kind of Crowd Control Barriers can I purchase from Pittman?
Retractable Belt Barriers are regularly used to control queues in airport check-in and security areas, in banks and other public areas. They are available in a range of finishes, belt colours and belt lengths. A really popular model in our economy range is the QueuePro Queue Barrier which has a smart chrome finish and 1.8M blue belt. The plain black finish queue barrier is the Boss Queue Belt Barrier Post.
Often used for the Utilities and Maintenance sectors are our range of portable barriers which boost safety for pedestrians around utility cuts, lift shafts, wet floors and areas being cleaned. Personnel need lightweight yet strong and high visibility barriers which can be quickly deployed and then folded up for ease of carrying when the job is done: have a look at our Mega Max Chain Post set which cordons off up to 25M with ultra high-vis reflective posts. These posts offer an excellent crowd control barrier feature and can be installed in seconds.
We also specialise in a chain lengths, in both plastic and steel. Plastic chain is of course lightweight and comes in various colours including red/white, white and black/yellow. Steel chain is heavier and stronger and more suited to public street areas. We have a selection of chain links also which allow you to securely attach the chain to bollards, eyelets and machinery. For more temporary use consider using our plastic barrier tape which is commonly used in conjunction with cones, timber stakes and in other ad-hoc situations.
Other popular options are our Ultra Expandable Crowd Barrier and the Terminal Expandable Barrier both ideal for any maintenance crew and can be tidily and securely folded down for transport to the next job.
