Sporting Events / Pep Rallies

From high school into college, football games and other sporting events are serious business. To direct the foot traffic as people make their way to your stadiums or playing fields, interlocking metal fence barricades can help guide the flow. If you need a large amount, you can even order them in your school colors to help ensure that your barricades are easily identifiable.

Barricade Covers can also be customized with your team’s logo, your school information or directional instructions. Large, full color printing is available to help take advantage of your crowd control space and use it to reinforce your school’s brand.

For indoor spaces like ticket lines and concession stands, retractable belt barriers are a tried and true method for queue control. Posts and belts can be customized with your school’s name, logo and colors.

Homecoming / Prom / Dances

Crowd control is important at dances and social events, but usually requires a bit more of an elegant flair. Classic metal stanchion posts with velour ropes can help direct traffic while keeping that touch of class that a special night requires.

PARKING LOTS

As with most events, you’ll need to account for parking. Or, at the very least, a drop off/pick up area. There are a number of products available to make this run smoothly by clearly directing vehicular traffic.

Traffic cones help people know which areas are off limits, and can be customized with a short message, or with your school’s name to prevent theft.

Delineator posts are highly visible poles that can help separate lanes and clearly identify the desired path for vehicles to take.
