Discover how Mojo Barriers do it

Crowd safety barrier specialists Mojo Barriers will feature on Discovery Channel’s flagship ‘How do they do it?’ documentary, this Friday, 13th February.

The documentary explains how Mojo Barriers’ patented stage barrier system is made, and the important role it plays at some of the world’s largest and most well known events.

Jasper Caldenhoven Mojo Barriers’ project manager supported the filming production process with WAG TV, ensuring that the film crew captured the exclusive content, from the manufacturing of barriers, to their installation and use at the Netherland’s oldest festival Pinkpop.

The ‘Mojo Barrier’ followed the ‘Hoover’ model, in becoming the generic term that extended beyond the company to be the de-facto name of all event barrier systems. Mojo was the inventor of the often copied barrier design, and it is still the most widely used global brand of crowd barrier. From Glastonbury Festival to AC / DC World tours to G20 Summits, Mojo Barriers are synonymous with crowd safety.

Jasper comments: “The documentary gives a great insight into our world: it follows every step of Mojo Barriers’ procedures including the manufacturing process, which saw us filming at four different factories. We then filmed the rigorous testing systems back at our warehouse, the logistical and planning processes and finally, how we use the barriers out on site.

“Pinkpop was the perfect festival for this where we helped to keep 70,000 attendees safe, as the festival celebrated its 45th year and the biggest line up in its history. Over 1,100m of barriers were installed across the site and 485m on the main stage alone, carefully designed and configured for optimum audience, crew and artist safety.”

‘How do they do it?’ is one of the Discovery Channel’s flagship programmes and is aired in over 220 countries worldwide. Find out more about the series and tune in on Friday 13th at 8pm.
