Channel Barriers for UEFA 2020 European Championships

Channel Barriers for UEFA 2020 European Championships

In 2020, we designed the channel system with UEFA to provide an effective queuing system for the 2020 European Championships. Many pedestrian barriers have protruding legs, which have been identified as a trip hazard. Actavo Events’ Channel Barrier features flat bespoke feet, which have been designed and manufactured specifically to allow for safer queuing lanes, maximising space and reducing trip hazards. The barrier’s new design, which comprises shorter runs, also means they can be more easily pushed by hand to concertina and fold away. This works perfectly in a crowd management or emergency situation, particularly if event teams need open access to an area to alter crowd flow or to deal with an emergency.
