Apr 2011 US Events can count on Mojo Barriers

Mojo-Barriers-April-11-LAMojo Barriers launched two new progressive crowd safety innovations into the American live events market at Live Event Expo on 12th April 2011.   

Gatekeeper and Barrier Load Monitoring System (BLMS) are revolutionary products created by Mojo Barriers to address the changing needs of the live event industry and ensure the safest event for both the audience and artists.   

Gatekeeper is a temporary event turnstile system which allows people to be counted in and out of an event space with numbers recorded in real time. Equipped with pioneering proprietary software and designed to improve crowd safety at events, the Gatekeeper works by monitoring the amount of people passing through entrance and exit Gatekeeper systems, which have been manufactured to be compatible with Mojo Barriers aluminium crowd barriers. Gatekeeper includes the option of automatically holding turnstiles at a pre-designated number, making it easy to stay within the permitted event capacity within the controlled area.

This is an ideal system for monitoring and controlling audience numbers in free public concerts and events, VIP golden circles, political rallies, community events and festival arena areas. 

Barrier Load Monitoring System (BLMS) measures the pressure exerted on barriers by an audience using innovative pressure sensors built in to the load bearing arms of the Mojo front of stage barriers. These are linked to a computer which can be located in a convenient position (eg backstage) to display the pressures being excerpted in real time and can be set to record the reading at set time intervals. 

 Mojo Barriers has worked closely with external educational institute Bucks New University leisure faculty in the United Kingdom to research crowd pressure at live events across Europe. Early results from BLMS system readings have been used for academic studies, whilst also helping clients modify the designs of their front of stage barrier configurations. Mojo Barriers continues to support this research and development to continuously progress crowd safety at live events. 

JB Dolphin, Mojo Barriers US President states:

“Both of these products have arisen from clients asking us how they can address specific issues of crowd safety. They have progressed from the design stage, to testing, to manufacture with Mojo Barriers, so we are now very proud to make them available to clients across the USA.”
