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?

Crowd control barriers corral large crowds at food truck festivals

Food truck festivals are a new kind of festival which have been experiencing overwhelming numbers of visitors in recent years. In short, food rocks! The trucks and their culinary delights, contemporary entertainment, musical entertainment, and entourage deserve the credits for this. But don’t forget the backstage roles as well, like the function of crowd control barriers. All of these festivals use crowd control barriers to ensure the safety of visitors. By hiring crowd control barriers, you make sure that all that food goes down smoothly.

Noise Control Barriers optimise the success of your event or festival

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.

What is noise pollution and how do you prevent it?

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.

Soundproof walls used as hearing protection around construction sites

Safety comes in many different forms. You use fences to deter thieves and camera systems to keep burglars at bay. To protect your hearing, you use a soundproof fabric. Since work in the Netherlands and Belgium is currently being carried out within the framework of reduced nuisance , the use of soundproof walls is becoming more common. Thanks to the fabric, the noise volume remains within the permitted noise limit, and excessive noise that leads to the construction site being shut down has become a thing of the past.

Older aggregates as well as concrete and stone grinders make a huge amount of noise. Newer versions are quieter, but not every company has one of these. To stay under the permitted noise limit, you can rent a soundproof fabric. The fabric reduces music and noise from machines. Municipalities regularly prescribe and promote this product.
