With the ever-changing situation being faced by Canadians, it has become necessary for us all to adjust the way we socialize, conduct business, and generally live our lives. At Modu-Loc, this means that we are seeing a shift in requirements for controlling access points and crowds.
“Social distancing” is a term we are all hearing often, and it has become an integral part of keeping people safe in these uncertain times. In some instances, such as in the retail sector, we are seeing companies taking the initiative to encourage social distancing. There are several examples, from installing temporary fence to create designated routes into stores to using tape to mark appropriate physical distance at checkouts.
Even municipalities are implementing measures to better enforce social distancing. For instance, crowd control barriers are being used to block off parks and other public gathering spaces to eliminate large crowds. These strict measures are critical in times like these, when limiting direct contact is our best tool to prevent community spread of diseases.
Modu-Loc is already being asked to supply and install temporary enclosures and crowd control measures like these. Thanks to our expertise and range of different crowd control options, we are able to tackle almost any situation where crowd control or mitigation is required. To help you select the best temporary crowd control solution for your requirements, here is a round-up of our available options:
Our standard temporary fence panels are professionally engineered for strength and durability to provide the highest level of security in the rental fence industry. Constructed with steel and heavy gauge welded wire mesh, these panels are built to last. The bases may be anchored to concrete or asphalt for extra stability, while the interlocking steel caps ensure alignment and overall stability. Our standard panels may be integrated into any one of our specialized solutions – such as our concrete block ballast system – for added safety and security.
Available in lengths of 5′ and 10′, and heights of 4′, 6′, and 8′, our standard green fence panels suit a wide range of applications. They are an ideal solution for protecting members of the public from certain areas and sites.
Our premium black fence panels create a temporary system that effectively manages the access and flow of attendees and customers. These panels are made of black powder-coated steel, and provide an attractive solution for crowd control. Often used for special events, this solution is seeing widespread adoption throughout the retail sector.
Galvanized steel crowd control barricades are ideal for clients requiring an attractive and effective option for managing pedestrian traffic. Unlike some of our other options, the bases for our silver crowd barrier are attached to the panels. This makes it fast and easy to set up and relocate the barricade as required.
Our high-visibility delineators are a quick, simple, and inexpensive solution for crowd control. Delineators have looped tops which can accommodate rope or caution tape – creating a highly mobile yet effective temporary barrier.
This, too, shall pass…but before it does, crowd control and social distancing measures will likely become the norm. We see this trend lasting for months, not weeks, in order to prevent transmission and recurrence. Adding the proper measures and leveraging crowd control solutions is the responsible thing to do. The short-term inconvenience of social distancing is worth the long-term positive impact it has on the safety of the public.
