3 big reasons why fencing is vital for large events

folder_openTemporary Events

Many UK major events around the country happen regularly. Outdoor concerts are popular, festivals attract huge crowds, and there has also recently been huge sporting events such as the Olympic Games in 2012 and the Commonwealth Games in 2014.

For both of those huge events, we provided temporary fencing. However, security fencing is vital for these types of events for several reasons. Here we look at the 3 big reasons why fencing is vital for large events…

Large event fencing – Security

Unfortunately, in the UK, we have recently seen how a popular music event can be attacked by a terrorist. So it’s important to make sure it is as difficult as possible to deny access to any would-be attacker, and fencing is a vital part of that.

It isn’t just terrorism that’s a threat. Having fencing will allow security to search for weapons such as knives. Others try and take flares and fireworks into large events, which can cause serious health and safety risks.

Crowd control

When you go to a music or sporting event, you often don’t consider the logistics around it. However, these events are designed in such a way to make sure that too many people aren’t trying to leave the same exit or flock to one area.

Also, if you don’t have crowd control, you will have no idea how many people are attending an event. This can lead to overcrowding which can be very dangerous. Therefore, there will be a limit on the number of people who can attend an event, and you need to adhere to it.

Validating tickets

Unless an event is free, everyone will have to buy a ticket to get entry. If you don’t have proper security, people will try to get access to the event for free. This would make getting tickets a pointless exercise and aggravate anyone who has.

A high-quality temporary fence would give validity to tickets and ensure that you’re not going to be losing out on revenue. These are all vital reasons to get a temporary fence and if you want to know your options, and want more information on large event fencing, contact Zaun today to see how we can help.
