Description: Crowd Control Steel Barrier

Galvanized Steel Crowd Control Barriers

This steel barrier comes in both 6.5’ and 8’ lengths. It’s 3’ tall and is designed to interlock with this same style of barrier on both ends. The interlocking mechanism is a simple drop into place design that makes these steel crowd control barriers easy to use and easy to move. 

Combining multiple of these steel barriers offers cost-effective and highly efficient perimeter protection for controlling foot traffic and creating safe zones for large crowds.

Besides providing physical barriers, steel crowd control barriers also provide a strong psychological deterrent to pedestrians by clearly defining where they are permitted to move.

Steel barriers are widely used to manage crowds seamlessly and are designed in such a way that they can be interlocked to create a formidable control structure that cannot be broken down out of order.

Crowd control barriers can be quickly and easily placed between pedestrian traffic and possible hazards so that employees, visitors, and the general public are protected at public events and festivals.

A row of steel barriers is a common sight at airports, sporting venues, and even on streets during demonstrations or celebrations.

The Todoos steel crowd control barriers are designed specifically for crowd management in traffic-heavy environments. Crowd control barricades are usually used in outdoor settings, which means they need to withstand rain and cold and remain rust-free to ensure a long lifespan.

Galvanized Steel Crowd Control Barriers

As a result of hot-dip galvanizing after fabrication, our heavy-gauge steel barricades are able to be placed outside or even stored there without any corrosion threat. 

Steel is best protected with hot-dip galvanizing, which means your crowd control steel barriers will last longer. Simply painting a barrier will not prevent it from rusting.

Why Hot Dipped Galvanized Barriers are Worth the Investment

A majority of our steel barriers have been in use for decades.

Several police departments, municipal bodies and private event organizers choose our crowd control steel barriers when they want a top-quality product.

The Classic vs Standard Steel Crowd Control Barrier

Steel barriers are available in 2 finishes: Standard and classic, with Classic being the best seller due to its heavyweight, strength and durability.

The primary difference between the Classic and Standard steel crowd control barriers is the wall thicknesses. The Classic barrier has more steel and is heavier but more durable, thus it is ideal for frequent use.

Advantages of Todoos Crowd Control Steel Barriers

At both ends, male hooks are inserted into the frame and welded to it.

This results in hooks that last much longer than single-welded hooks.

Vertical BarsVertical bars (Uprights) are inserted into frames before welding.

Inserting the bars before welding is a superior technique to spot welding (which results in easier breakage).
