We are proving to be a film industry favourite when it comes to keeping stars safe on the red carpet.
May marks the midway point in a run of work that will see our pedestrian barrier used at 22 premieres in London over a four month period.
Working in conjunction with main contractor, Capital Barriers, we have so far provided protection for celebrity guests at the launch of films including Muppets Most Wanted in Mayfair, Noah and most recently, X-Men Days of Future Past, both in Leicester Square.
Our barriers are lined up on either side of the red carpet to keep journalists and fans at a safe distance from the movie’s stars. The portable fencing is popular with premiere organisers as it can be deployed quickly in almost any configuration and gives a uniform finish that can be decorated with the film’s branding.
The movie season is incredibly busy for us and will see us travelling to London multiple times a month. In May alone, we are catering for the launch of eight films, alongside the range of other sporting and entertainment events we cover. Setting up a UK premiere without bringing the capital to a halt requires careful planning and we relish being part of an operation that comprises so many professionals, each with a different, yet equally important, role to play in its success.
Our heavy duty pedestrian barrier is suitable to medium to high crowd pressure. The one piece panels interlock to provide a solid fencing line and have a triangular base that is designed to prevent them sliding. For more information, telephone 0844 870 9802.
