Crowd management- mobile crowd-control barrier

A Wolverhampton-based specialist trailer and equipment manufacturer has introduced a mobile crowd-control barrier, which it believes will help hard-pressed football clubs and sporting venues to reduce the costs of match-day and event management, security and policing.  

Oldbury UK says its mobile scene and incident management barrier was originally designed for riot and homeland security applications and other emergencies. Now, the company believes it could prove to be a cost-effective and efficient solution at football stadia, arenas, and other major sporting events where crowd control, or public safety is a priority.

The company says the mobile barrier is a width-adjustable, fold-out design, which is fully deployable in around four minutes. Several units can be coupled together in series. The solid barrier skin includes an access door, viewing windows, and flap-over, anti-scaling overhangs. The design also incorporates a number of patented features, says Oldbury. The entry level variant is based on a braked, lightweight single-axle, rubber-suspended trailer for ease of handling and manoeuvrability — and for towing behind a normal light commercial vehicle, or 4×4.
