Description

Galvanized Steel Crowd Control Barrier

The Blockader® interlocking crowd control barrier is ideal for crowd management and line delineation. Block off “no access” zones or use these barriers as a portable railing to establish line space. Secure your site or event with the Classic Blockader Steel Barrier.

The Classic vs Standard Crowd Control Barrier

The primary difference in the Classic and Standard Blockader crowd control barriers are the wall thicknesses.  The Classic barrier has more steel and is heavier but more durable.  The Classic barrier is ideal for constant use.

Crowd Control Barrier Size Options

Classic crowd control barriers are available in three sizes: 3ft, 6.5ft, and 8ft.

Crowd Control Barrier Base Options

There are several barrier base options available with the bridge base and flat base being the most popular by far.

TRADITIONAL BRIDGE BASE

  • The most popular base style since steel barriers was invented
  • Provides the best resistance to “push” by crowds at events such as parades
  • Maximum stability on uneven surfaces
  • Each individual barrier has one large base and one small base
  • This allows all four points of the base to “dig in” and remain in constant contact with the ground
  • Accommodates placement of barriers in both a straight line and at various angles

FLAT BASE

  • Second most popular base style
  • Ideal for use as portable pedestrian railing in situations where crowds will be walking parallel to barriers
  • Used by New York City Department of Transportation to divert pedestrians around construction sites
  • Rubber inserts provide additional friction and reduce sliding
  • Features holes for semi-permanent anchoring

U BASE

  • A new design similar to the traditional bridge base
  • Provides excellent four-point stability
  • Originally utilized by France’s Interior Department
  • Rubber stoppers help protect the floor during indoor use and reduce sliding

WHEEL BASE

  • Makes barriers easier to move
  • Ideal for areas where constant lifting or moving occurs (such as parking lots)

Looking for replacement bases for your barriers?

Blockader bases have been the industry standard for 25 years. The base styles described above are in-stock and will result in a proper fit for almost all existing styles of barriers.

However, there are some discontinued frame variations which may not accommodate the standard base styles. In most cases, we can deliver a workable replacement base to you. If you have any questions about obtaining bases for so-called “orphan” barriers, contact us.

A True Interlocking Crowd Control Barrier

A more secure crowd control system

Interlocking steel barriers are designed to create a line of barriers, locking them together, so they cannot be easily broken down out of order.  The Male hook of the barrier locks into place once inserted into the female hook.

Blockader Steel Barrier Advantages

Crowd Control Barrier Welded Hooks

MALE HOOKS INSERTED INTO AND WELDED TO THE FRAME AT BOTH ENDS.

Results in hooks which last much longer than single-welded hooks.

Crowd Control Barrier Vertical Inserts

VERTICAL BARS (UPRIGHTS) INSERTED INTO FRAMES BEFORE WELDING.

Inserting before welding is a superior technique to spot welding (which results in easier breakage).

Crowd Control Barrier Hot Dip Galvanized

HOT-DIP GALVANIZING

The best protection for steel, resulting in a longer lifespan for your barriers. Barriers that are merely painted will rust.

Why Hot Dipped Galvanized Barriers are Worth the Investment

Crowd Control Barrier Saddle Weld

SADDLE-CUT WELDS.

Much stronger than simple spot welding, saddle-cut welding results in superior strength and durability.

Crowd Control Barrier Bolt on Bases

BOLT-ON REPLACEABLE BASES

Enables easy replacement – simply replace the base of the barrier and not the entire barrier itself.

Crowd Control Barrier 16 Gauge Steel

16 GAUGE STEEL IN BOTH THE FRAMES AND THE BASES

Stronger Steel prevents deterioration and distortion, without adding excess weight to the barrier.

SIGNAGE FOR CROWD CONTROL BARRIERS

Crowd Control Barrier Signs – attached to your crowd control barricades by nuts and bolts – are an ideal way of identifying ownership of barriers, and preventing accidental loss.

Crowd Control Barrier Laser-cut Signs – The most effective inventory control and identification tool. Laser-cut signs are permanent and welded to the uprights prior to galvanization. They cannot be removed without cutting out two uprights.

Reflective Sheeting – commonly used on traffic cones – is also an effective way to identify steel barricades.

Barricade Covers – your crowd control system is typically used around crowds of people. Barricade covers allow you to promote branding or help direct pedestrians to where they need to be.
