If you are a club owner or an event organizer, you must know the importance of crowd control to prevent dangerous situations. Before organizing any party or event, this must have been your first thing to take into account. Organizing is an event or party where you are expecting thousands of guests is not at all a child’s play. It takes a lot of responsibilities and guts of course to handle that stress to make it a successful event in every term.
After reading the above paragraph, you must have got an idea that I am also somehow related to crowd control field. Yes, your guess is right! But, I am neither a party or event organizer nor a club owner. I am working for a company that manufactures tools or equipments such as stainless stanchions, retractable barrier (also known as “barriere retractable” in the French language) rope stanchions, and plastic barriers, expendable gates made up from plastic and steel, and a lot more other accessories. Since, I am working for the company, ACC; I have a thorough idea about these things. I am a part time content writer as well and just thought about writing about what I am working for.
I have seen people who have less idea about these crowd control equipments. This article is especially for those people who usually ask me about these equipments and their application areas.
Let me pick up stanchions for you guys and tell you something about it and its usages. The company provides high quality and premium stainless steel stanchions. If you have ever visited an airport, you have noticed there these stanchions at the boarding pass area. These stanchions have been used to make a queue of people waiting to get their boarding passes. Next, when you have your boarding passes, you go for security check-in area where these stanchions are placed to maintain the decorum. It’s become easy for the security staff to check people one by one, which is necessary for your security.
In another case you have never visited an airport; I bet you must have visited a supermarket or a mall in your area to buy household needs or grocery items. There, at the billing sections, rope stanchions are used to serve the customers one by one so that no dispute comes along while billing. I hope now you have an idea about stanchions.
The expendable gate is another thing which is used for crowd controlling purpose. Expendable gates are mostly used there where you need to restrict an area for people to come in. for example, if you see your store is already full and you do not want a bunch of people to come inside, you may use expendable gates to close that restricted area for a while.
Rope posts are being used in the areas where it become necessary to maintain the queue of people getting tickets from theatre, airport, billing section of the supermarket or mall, etc.
