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.

A lot of requirements have to be satisfied at a building site and a lot of things must be taken into account. You must observe all legal requirements and regulations and guarantee the safety of your workers, local residents, and passers-by. You also want to limit criminality and inconvenience to traffic, yet at the same time provide speedy access for authorised individuals. You can deal with all issues in one go when you install the right mobile fences and gates. How can mobile fences provide added value? And, how can fences guarantee safety and security?

The number of events being held worldwide continues to increase each year. Research has now clearly demonstrated the public, social, economic and cultural importance of these events (including tourist, promotional, and recreational events). Everyone loves a good party. However, in addition to your event creating a festive mood for your visitors, how they experience their environment is also important. How do you limit the noise nuisance for local residents? Professional event fencing can help to make your event a success for everyone.

The locals are happy to wish the organisers of an event or festival good luck. But do you, as an organiser, grant them their relative peace and refrain from intentionally forcing your music or other sounds on them? The installation of sound barriers in noise-sensitive areas helps in this respect.
In this blog post, we would like to tell you how noise pollution can completely overshadow an event or festival for those living in the vicinity. But even more, we want to explain how these complaints, which can weigh heavily on the success of an event, can be prevented easily by using Noise Control Barrier fencing.

There are more than enough examples out there! Fences blown over or (even worse) blown away, which in turn cause considerable damage. And not just material damage. Can fences that have been blown away also lead to accidents that affect construction workers or passers-by? As a construction company and/or site supervisor, you never want that to be on your conscience. But how can you prevent this? And what are the legal obligations that must be met when installing fences? In this blog post, we would like to draw the attention of site supervisors, buyers, and other interested parties to how to act when using and installing fences.

A healthy and safe working climate for employees and an optimal living climate for local residents: it’s so much easier to achieve than you think! By controlling noise on your construction site, you respond to the wishes of all those involved. You maximise living enjoyment for local residents and minimise hearing damage to employees on the construction site. Read here about how you can easily reduce noise by 17 dB(A)* and thus prevent direct noise pollution.
