The barricades included straight, curved, and gated units, to form break lines in two directions and alleviate crowd pressure at the sold-out concert. Their configuration also created much needed passageway space for security personnel - who were able to pull out concertgoers with the help of integrated steps on the back side.
Real security issues are presented at concerts like these, as an overwhelming number of young fans try to get close to the teen sensation. "This kind of event is where our barricades really get a chance to shine," says Lutz Meessen, project manager for eps.
The modular GIGS units were assembled and disassembled by an eps supervisor with the help of a small onsite crew, and the lightweight aluminum construction allowed this work to be done quickly and easily.
