Stage Barriers Add Layers of Security & Protection 

Concerts and sporting events often proceed without incident, but advanced event planning should always include an objective assessment of security risks. Safety considerations may include:

  • Trips/falls, heat strokes, accidental injuries & public health emergencies. 
  • High emotions sparked by competitive sporting events, political rallies, raucous concerts or controversial keynotes. 
  • Acts of domestic terrorism or perpetrated violence. 
  • Drinking, drugs, sexual promiscuity and other forms of disorderly conduct.  

Keeping crowds, artists and speakers safe requires a thoughtful perimeter strategy, and stage barriers offer a physical deterrent to crowd violence. These barricades are also a top way to manage crowd traffic, protect attendees, minimize venue liability and reduce the potential for event-related injuries. 

Gated Stage Barriers Safeguard Talent & Crowds

Gate stage barriers elevate event safety by supporting boundaries. Hinged gates allow authorized personnel to enter without disrupting barrier lines, and well-designed barricade systems permit security, engineers and maintenance crews to access closed areas. Enabling critical personnel to access behind-the-scenes locations makes large gatherings safer and more successful. 

In addition, gated stage barriers are an ideal addition to any bulk equipment order since they integrate seamlessly with SONCO straight barrier panels, snake runners and corner sections. Mojo barriers and other popular equipment styles are also compatible with SONCO gates and panels, making it easy to create customized crowd safety systems that address event-specific hazards.  

Why Choose Stage Barriers?

The impact of poorly managed events can be disastrous, with problems ranging from collapsed barricade injuries, long lines, frustrated attendees, disorganized wayfinding and more. Heighten the safety of your next concert or tournament with premium stage barrier systems from America’s crowd control team. 


In many cases, concert barriers are the foremost safety mechanism for high-energy concerts, intoxicated patrons and rowdy groups. When carefully placed in high-risk zones, these metal barricades serve as a physical border between performers and audiences. Level up your venue’s safety plan by installing gated stage systems at facility entrances and exits, too.

Essential Perimeter Equipment for Events

When it comes to non-negotiable security measures for your mass gathering, steel barricades and aluminum stage barriers are a vital part of your playbook. 

  • Steel barricades: Essential for crowd control, these sturdy units define barriers between restricted areas and unruly audiences. Steel barricades also direct the flow of foot and vehicle traffic, and they’re perfect for cultivating order and directing lines.

  • Stage barriers: Stage barriers were explicitly designed for music festivals, concert venues and other dense crowd zones. Today, customizable stage systems are considered crucial to performer staff and spectator safety.  

In any fast-paced environment where music and alcohol are flowing, both steel barricades and stage barriers deliver added layers of protection.
