Crowd Control Barriers
Crowd control barriers (also referred to as crowd control barricades, with some versions called a French barrier or bike rack in the USA), 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 barricades 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.
Crowd control barricades are most commonly made of steel, although lighter-weight plastic variations are sometimes used. Barriers are most effective when they interlock, being attached to each other in a line via hooks at the side of each barricade.
