Benefits of Lightweight Aluminum Concert Barricades


Aluminum Concert Barricades Take the Stage:

Robust Crowd Control in a Lightweight Package

If your venue still relies on traditional steel concert barricades for crowd management, you’re familiar with the drawbacks. The cumbersome installation process, increased setup time and elevated labor and fuel costs make them a nightmare for skeleton crews and small venues. These heavy metal barricades also lack portability, preventing quick emergency removal. Some jurisdictions now restrict steel barriers due to this safety concern.

At SONCO, we know quick stage setup and equipment reliability are essential to a successful event. Trust our reputable stage barrier lineup to streamline crowd management without sacrificing safety. When patron, performer and crew security are paramount, these industry-leading aluminum concert barricades deliver.

SONCO Aluminum Stage Barrier Benefits

While steel stage barricades were the industry standard for decades, their weight and bulk were a detriment. To ease deployment and prevent personnel injury, SONCO engineers aluminum barrier systems for concerts, festivals, theater performances and other stage events. Our lightweight but heavy-duty metal barricades meet American Welding Society standards and install quickly with a small crew. Built for indoor or outdoor use, aluminum stage barriers come with durable connector pins as strong as the barricades, themselves. Securely interlock barriers for the ultimate crowd control system. Create a seamless wall of safety that protects entertainers while safeguarding attendees and event staff. SONCO aluminum barricades are trusted nationwide for events like these:

  • Red carpet performances
  • Portable stages
  • Mega-concerts
  • Conventions & tradeshows
  • BBQ battles & food-truck contests
  • Holiday events
  • Plays & musicals
  • Exhibitions & speaking tours
  • Political rallies
  • Fairs & festivals
  • Marathons & triathlons
  • Sporting & playoff events
