Time is gold, right? It's no wonder why most people hate to fall in line and spend their precious time waiting for their turn. I'm just so glad that crowd control products were invented or else it will be chaos everywhere. Just imagine everyone rushing to the front in banks, concerts, grocery stores and airports.
These days, there are lots of crowd control products that are available for events or places where orderly lines are needed. Stanchions are the standard way to do this but you probably have seen those retractable belts in airports or the velvet ropes in cinemas. Barricades, on the other hand, are usually put in place for traffic control, security and privacy such, but not limited to, fence barricades, traffic cones, pipe and drape walls.
I just so like those crowd control devices that does more than just keeping the lines in order. What I mean are those barriers that have public info messages, signs or images that either guide or entertain the crowd while waiting for their turn. The fact that the manufacturers of these items just keep coming up with innovations, safer and better products is always good for the consumers.
