Guiding streams of visitors and closing off areas

Lightweight folding walls are the solution for city festivals and other major events

Very often, metal barriers are used for closing off areas for visitors at major events and for marking routes. However, they are not required as long as they only serve for visual guidance. The Trotec Group has mobile solutions for visual covers on offer which are light and space-saving and can be unfolded within seconds: VarioScreens.

Mobile VarioScreen screen fences are extremely flexible when it comes to separating areas at festivals or other major events: a module consists of 4 panels of 180 x 180 cm each and thus shields a distance of 7.20 metres. Its 3 joints allow for flexible mounting: in a semicircle, zigzag line or as a conventional corner. At major events, several VarioScreens can be strung together via robust zip fasteners – an endless number in steps of 7 metres. Available as accessories are metal rods with base for stabilization as well as a tent peg and rope set for additional fastening.

Everything is possible: Hundreds of metres of barriers in any arrangement

With VarioScreen, organisers and security officers can choose between all imaginable kinds of arrangement: a rectangular visual cover for the first-aid station or a straight barrier wall closing off the ticketed area in front of the open-air stage. Even a sinuous path around a stall leading to the toilet area is not a problem. Or marking a parking zone with screen fences. The VarioScreen may also be used for visually shielding the rescue path for the fire brigade and ambulance – and in the worst case, it can even be run over by the emergency vehicles. In contrast to mobile crowd barriers, it is not possible for small children to pass through any gaps since every VarioScreen, as well as the zip connection in between, is head-high and closed in itself.

Decisive for logistics: light, foldable and space-saving storage

The mobile VarioScreen lightweight walls of the Trotec Group consist of quick-to-assemble fibre glass rods and extremely durable polyester cloth. They can be put up by one person in a matter of seconds and collapsed again just as quickly after use to be stored away in a carry bag with minimum space requirements. Compared to crowd barriers, personnel and transport expenses are minimized significantly and the storage space is reduced to the size of a sports bag.

Printed barriers with advertising effect and/or transparency

For the visitor flow control at small and big events, it is on the one hand possible to use the screen fences from the product segment accident screen fences with their functional design. On the other hand, we have custom-build business models available which can have an advertising effect: the mobile business walls can be printed, for instance, with the logo of a city, club, brewery or band. It is also possible to choose a semitransparent solution, which allows parents and supervisors to keep an eye on the children inside a closed-off play area, but at the same time demonstrates the children the limits of that area.

Further application examples for work tents / mobile privacy screens

  • Accident screen fences for policemen & rescuers

    At the scene of an accident or crime or during disaster relief, rescue forces are unfortunately often hindered by gazers. The faster the scene is shielded, the better the task forces can carry out their work. To this end, Trotec offers a mobile, quick-to-assemble solution: VarioScreen.

  • Evacuation exercises on passenger ships

    Even if passenger ships are supposed to be an extremely secure means of transport, the preparation for an emergency must be taken seriously. International regulations drafted under the auspices of the United Nations require that sea crews must be trained for the case of an evacuation as part of the safety precautions. To practice for an emergency under realistic conditions, fog machines are used....

  • Evacuation exercises in airplanes

    Even if commercial aircrafts are manufactured in line with the latest standards nowadays, they are not immune to technical problems. In case of an incident, the on-flight crew must know exactly what to do to protect the passengers and themselves. The personnel is trained for such emergencies during special exercises. This includes evacuating passengers from a smoky aircraft in case of fire. A fog...

  • Evacuation exercises in trains

    Whether a faulty air conditioning system, a damaged engine or a burning waste bin: usually, the cause for smoke development on a train is only identified after completion of the fire-fighting operation. Before that, it is important for the on-board staff to keep calm and evacuate the passengers. The personnel is prepared for the worst case during fire exercises. During such an exercise, the fog...

  • Storage tents/marquees

    As opposed to conventional warehouses, marquees and large storage tents are erected quickly and at low cost. The only challenges in the face of buildings – even with insulated marquees – are condensation and humidity control. Stationary high-performance dryers with hose systems for a consistent supply of dry air prevent moisture problems in advance.
