Many indoor music venues and outdoor festivals alike use multiple types of safety barricades to surround the perimeter of the event, clearly define entrances and exits, create separate areas for VIPs, designate areas for food and beverage sales, and protect the stage. OTW has provided safety barricades for many major concert venues and outdoor music festivals, including the Twilight Music Festival in downtown Salt Lake City, the Live Nation Coral Sky Amphitheater at the South Florida Fairgrounds, the Music City Center in Nashville, and more.

Our concert plastic concert barriers keep attendees safe, and are more versatile than traditional metal barriers that you might see at other shows or events.

What Are The Advantages of Plastic Concert Barriers?

While many concert venues around the country still use outdated steel barricades for crowd control, these barricades are often ineffective and can sometimes be dangerous.

Using plastic concert barricades has many benefits for concert-goers and venue staff alike, including quick and easy set-up and the ability to display custom signage. Since upgrading an entire stock of barricades can be cost prohibitive, we also offer a metal-to-plastic barricade adapter that securely fastens traditional steel barricades to our Billboard Barricade.

So, what are the advantages of using plastic concert barriers, and why should your venue or event make the switch? Some benefits of plastic barricades:

Additional Safety

Plastic concert barriers are safer for large crowds than traditional metal barricades, which are prone to sharp corners, bent feet, and rust. OTW’s plastic barricades are stable on all types of outdoor terrain including grass, and indoor concert venues can utilize these barriers as a necessary safety precaution without worrying about scraping their floors as often happens when using traditional metal barricades.

Better Appearance

When placed at concerts, festivals, or other major events, plastic barricades look more inviting and friendly than steel barriers. The ability to customize barricade signs means that events can add this display space to their sponsorship packages and feature ads for local businesses, sponsors, or future events.

Lightweight Yet Durable

One of the major benefits of plastic concert barricades is that they’re lightweight and easy to move into position, but, when connected with adjacent barricades, form a wall that is practically immovable. In extreme weather conditions such as heavy winds at outdoor concerts, plastic barricades can be ballasted with water or sand, or secured to the ground with an extra post. When empty, our plastic concert barricades are only 33 pounds – enough to be moved and put into position by a single person.
