What gates should you select for the entrance of your building site?

Your building site’s entrance should not be an invitation to steal or vandalise. Moreover, your entrance should not cause frustration in the drivers of arriving and departing construction vehicles. An entrance to your building site should impress on authorised visitors to treat the terrain with respect. So, how do you make an obstacle-free and burglar-proof entrance that suits your building site? This blog provides insight into the pros and cons of purchasing a sliding gate, sliding mobile fence, or a swing gate.

Five reasons to rent a crowd control barrier

The Dutch events industry is working overtime. Be it sports, music, culture, lifestyle, food, etc. Thousands of events take place now every year. And, beyond the increase in the number of events, organisations are making events increasingly more massive, vaster, and more exuberant. As a visitor, we want to be more surprised, receive more attention, and also expect the best experience and optimal safety. Fortunately, almost all of the events provide a positive contribution to society. However, we still need to be honest. There are also risks. We need to cross the T’s and dot the I’s to ensure we prevent hazardous situations. Crowd control barriers are a practical means to achieve this goal. In this article, we describe five reasons to rent a crowd control barrier.

Optimise experience and safety with event fencing

Heras Mobile provides solutions for a multitude of events. Joep Coenen, Business Unit Manager at Heras Mobile, gives another perspective to delivering event fencing. We don’t think in terms of the product, but in terms of the ‘journey’ that the visitor makes on and around the site. This gives a surprisingly different view of fencing. Well-fitting fencing contributes to a safe major event without escalations. “Provided that you understand the needs of the guests and anticipate these,” says Joep.

A safe sporting event with crowd control barriers

Every year, many sporting events take place in every country, outside the regular sports competitions. These include the big crowd-pullers like the Berlin or New York Marathon, European Championship, or World Cup Football, or even the Olympic Games. But smaller, national events are often also well attended. Organising such a sporting event involves a lot of work. What should not be missing is the determination of the objective, target group, catering, and budget. Also bear in mind that crowd control barriers are needed to steer the sporting event in the right direction.  There is a lot of work to be done to ensure the safety of both visitors and athletes. How do you steer this in the right direction?
