Stanchions and crowd control barriers for nonprofits
At one time or another a lot of nonprofit organizations will need help with crowd control. Outdoor events, large public fundraisers and festivals are potential times when the control will be needed. We often think about barricades at concerts. These barriers are vital for keeping the fans off of and away from the stage area. Sectioning these areas off can be a matter of safety for everyone who is involved with an event.
Outdoor gatherings are not the only time that a nonprofit will need to manage crowds. Even silent auctions can use stanchions. These barriers can let donors close enough to get a good look at the auction items. But, without the worry of something being accidentally damaged because of handling.
There are many different types of barriers available. The ones that you choose depend on the type of event that your nonprofit is planning. For auctions, photo or art displays the best barrier to use is a velvet rope . This is an elegant way to manage crowds while preserving an upscale appearance.
