About ARX Crowd Barriers

ARX Crowd Barriers (also known as pit barriers and stage barriers) are used for crowd control and are important to help ensure health and safety compliance at stadiums, arenas and festivals.

The barriers are generally designed to sit between the stage and the crowd, providing a safe area for security and medical personnel to work and to prevent the crowd from getting injured. The modules are sectional and fold flat for ease of transportation and storage.

Components and Build

A range of ARX Crowd Barriers are available including 1.2m straight modules, corners modules and gated modules.

Once erected, the vertical barrier is secured upright with stainless steel indexing plungers situated on either side. The Units are secured to each other via 6 industry standard Roto or Dual Locks (Coffin Locks) whereby the eccentric cam action progressively draws and positively locks the units together. An integral safety step also locks into position on the secure side of the barrier for security or safety staff to better monitor and assist crowd activity. 

The rounded aluminium top bar ensures no sharp corners are in use for safety and the “finger trap” issue that is common on other systems between the units when connected is eliminated. The “crowd side” base plate is manufactured using an aluminium chequer plate construction with an extruded aluminium front ramp for anti-trip access to the product.

Set-up Options

ARX Crowd Barriers are designed to allow the user flexibility to build different set-up combinations. Most set-ups include an array of straight runs which adds structure and rigidity into the overall build. Corner modules can be utilised into the set-up to allow flexibility to turn corners if required.

The images below show a basic set-up utilising 1.2m straight units and with corners.
