Keeping Your Crowd Safe with

When dealing with a large crowd, ensuring safety becomes exponentially more difficult. Our Safety Products can assist you with crowd control and help you avoid injuries and keep your crowd safe. Several of our products serve as both safety and crowd control devices. For example, take a look at our Tensacone Safety Cone.

The combination of the retractable stanchion and cautionary cone helps you restrict unsafe areas by both blocking off the area and using a cone to indicate risk. Oftentimes having a simple black stanchion doesn’t send the message that stepping beyond this point will put you at risk, which is why the Tensacone has a black and yellow diagonal stripe belt that sends a clear message.

We also have a wide selection of cones and caution signs pictured below.

Our bright yellow plastic wet floor signs can be read from 30 feet away and are able to fit between doorways and narrow spaces. We offer these signs in multilingual English, Spanish, French and German.

We also carry a variety of metal detectors. Our M-Scope Portable Walk Through Metal Detector is great for any large event, school, courtroom, or train station.

If you’re looking for something slightly smaller, as part of our hand-held options we have a Hand-Held Concealed Weapons Detector that is capable of locating all types of metal. This detector comes with the option of various frequency settings to avoid any interferences. We also carry a standard Hand-Held Security Metal Detector , along with other metal detecting devices.

Safety is always first. Browse our entire selection of Safety Products here.

Preparing For the Black Friday Crowd

For many, Black Friday is an opportunity to stock up and save money. For those of us managing the lines and storefronts on this crazed-shopper holiday the day takes on a very different purpose- to control the crowds.

The best way to keep one of the largest and hungriest crowds of the year under control is to be prepared and educated on the best kind of equipment to use. If you know that you will be handling a long and growing line, we recommend using our Galvanized Steel Barriers built from high quality carbon and steel. These barriers are designed to be weather resistant, stable, and extremely durable against a large moving crowd.

We also recommend using Stanchions to control lines within a store. When several customers are in line to purchase it’s always best to organize the lines with stanchions to avoid confusion and potential frustration among customers and employees. We have retractable belt stanchions available if you anticipate the need to adjust stanchions and reorganize lines throughout the course of your business hours.

In addition to handling the crowd already standing outside or inside your doors, you need to be prepared for the vehicle traffic that comes before and after your shoppers arrive. Several of our Traffic Control products will come in handy when directing crowded and hectic parking lots or structures, such as our traffic cones and reflective vests.

Let us help you lighten your load this Black Friday with the right equipment to keep you and your customers safe and organized.
