Crowd control barriers (also referred to as ped barriers and crowd control barricades), are commonly used at many public events. They are frequently visible at sporting events, parades, political rallies, demonstrations and outdoor festivals. Event organizers, venue managers, and security personnel use crowd control barriers as part of their crowd management planning.
Crowd control barriers act as a physical and psychological barrier, used to demarcate “no access” zones, and to designate space for lines. These crowd control barriers are most effective when they interlock, being attached to each other in a line via hooks and eyes at the side of each steel barrier. When pedestrian barriers are interlocked, security personnel can create lines of barriers that are very difficult to penetrate.
Our crowd control barriers are particularly strong because they have a singular piece of tube making up the entire frame, resulting in only one join. They also have stronger than average crowd barrier legs due to the thicker gauge of steel used (1.2mm), meaning they can take the weight of people standing on them without the need for an extra support bar. This results in a crowd barrier that lasts longer, making it perfect for hiring or using multiple times, making your money go further. Combine that with an incredible label price and you have yourself a fantastic deal.
We favour this more robust barrier as damage to crowd barriers is most often caused by site machinery or the public. By choosing a barrier that uses thicker gauge steel you can dramatically increase the life span of your crowd barriers. We have found that these safety barriers are extremely popular amongst event organisers and we have supplied events ranging from agricultural shows to Motorcross races with our crowd control barriers. The ability to reuse these barriers time and time again also makes them a firm favourite for construction firms and home builders who use crowd barriers in order to more efficiently manage site work and keep both civilians and the workforce safe in and around construction works. These pedestrian barriers are also extremely popular amongst nightclubs and other busy venues to help organise and control entrance and exit.
The fixed leg crowd control barriers have the four feet welded to the frame of the crowd barrier, these are crowd barrier legs are split to make stacking them together easy, maximising your storage space. The fixed leg crowd barrier feet also have domed ends, in order to make sure there are no sharp edges to potentially hurt someone. If you are looking for a detachable leg, most commonly favoured by people who are looking to store or transport their pedestrian barriers lying down, then you should take a look at the loose leg crowd barrier variation that we also have available for purchase direct from our website.

To fit alongside all of our crowd control barriers we offer a range of walkthrough crowd barriers, also known as hoop barriers, to give you a compete crowd control solution.
- Basic Walkthrough Crowd Barrier – the simplest and cheapest form of marking a pedestrian access point is using a basic walkthrough crowd barrier. Powder coated in red as standard these highlight crossing points in your pedestrian barrier line.
- Advanced Walkthrough Crowd Barrier – the advanced walkthrough crowd barrier comes fit with a bottom bar, to make the barrier more durable, and a spring-loaded gate to help control the access and flow of people through your temporary fencing barrier.
- Heavy Duty Walkthrough Crowd Barrier – the ultimate walkthough barrier is our heavy-duty version. This is manufactured using thicker square hollow section steel, rather than circular tube, and is most commonly found on construction sites where durability is vital.
- Standalone Crowd Barrier Gate – most recently we developed the standalone walkthrough crowd barrier which comes fit with a spring loaded gate and slide bolt latch. This barrier is commonly used in commercial and domestic environments, rather than in the construction and building industries.
