Gatekeeper First at Zurich OpenAir 2015

Mojo Barriers supplied Gatekeeper access control barriers to Zurich OpenAir 2015 for the first time this summer, 26-28th August 2015.

Working in conjunction with cashless payment system provider Starticket, Mojo Barriers provided 20 Gatekeeper units, over six different entrance and exit points across the event site.

The Starticket software was controlled by a central computer, with their sensors integrated into Mojo’s access control barriers, which helped reduce queuing times, manpower and improve control crowd safety through the audience ingress.

Mojo Barriers CEO Cees Muurling said: “This was the first time we worked together with Starticket. Starticket build the interface, which was incorporated into our Gatekeeper turnstile system in just four weeks. We delivered a unit to their development team in Salzburg, Austria to test all software / hardware compatibilities in advance and they integrated both systems together in a very small time frame.

 “The teams of Starticket and Mojo Barriers worked very well together onsite and the scanning went smoothly to get the audience in effectively. Gatekeeper was designed to work with multiple ticketing platforms and this was a great example of the system’s versatility to be integrated with any software.”

 This year’s OpenAir festival saw headline acts such as Rudimental, Skrillex, Bastille, Stereophonics, Fatboy Slim and Kasabian.

This event was one of the last festivals of a very busy 2015 summer season for Mojo Barriers.  Notable successes included the UK’s famous Glastonbury Festival, Budapest’s Sziget Festival, HELLFEST OpenAir in France, Barcelona’s Primavera Sound, Belgium’s Rock Werchter, Lowlands Festival in the Netherlands and V-festival South in the UK.
