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.
