GHL crowd control barriers keep the thousands of Block-a-holics safe

From early in the morning, large crowds were lining up for the popular event ‘The Block - Open Homes’ despite the rain and cold. With road closures around the area, subject to the council resource consent, tight pack in and pack out times required reliable, fast & efficient installation of crowd control barriers.

The key to our success is planning. The GHL team started preparing days before the event by attaching the sponsors signage onto the crowd control barriers. Strict instructions were also given as to the specific order of the different sponsors signage along the crowd control barrier. The barriers were stacked and loaded into the truck in the correct order, so GHL could easily meet the tight pack in times and saved valuable time.

Another important part to consider when planning an event of this magnitude, is the need to meet health and safety compliance. The temporary fencing team at GHL take safety very seriously and are probably one of a few, if not the only, Auckland fence hire company, that are an Auckland City Council pre-approved contractor.

The GHLcrowd control barriers are unique and the safest barrier on the temp fence market. Why?

  1. Our barriers have flat feet. Many others have a claw foot, turning them into a tripping hazard.
  2. Our interlocking hoop and clip between each panel, has been specifically designed so an individual panel can’t be lifted out easily, for crowd control and stability of the barrier.
