Managing the chaos of large crowds and the rubbernecking of passing onlookers can be a major time-sink – unless you have barricades, queueing lines and caution tape. These signs and barriers can indicate where a ticket line begins, cordon impediments or hazards, and keep your crowds moving like a well-oiled machine.
While many people have seen barricades and crowd control signage, or are at least familiar with them through depictions on television and film (most notably police dramas), few are aware of the role that queuing lines play in their day-to-day lives. But what defines a queuing line?
What are queueing lines and how can they help me?
Queue lines, or waiting lines, are defined by their function. They often consist of multiple posts, called stanchions, that link end-to-end with a rope or belt.
These links are made from different materials, which are chosen to match the formality of an event. For example, a movie theater may be more comfortable employing vinyl, retractable belts, whereas a grand opening or a gala event may opt for velvet rope instead. You can rely on Image360 Baltimore-White Marsh to help any business match a line system to their specific needs.
Waiting lines can be laid out in several different ways to improve efficiency and the flow of pedestrian traffic. We recommend two small queue lines side-by-side to accommodate the ebb and flow of traffic.

What are safety barricades, and how do I use them?
Caution tape will suffice for smaller crowds, but if your business or community needs to block vehicle traffic, a barricade is the signage option of choice.
Barricades are often orange and white for visibility, and durable enough to withstand inclement weather, as well as repeated knockdowns from vehicles and crowds. They are typically made of metal and polyethylene.
Using pedestrian barricades is an effective way to keep vehicles and pedestrians separate at events like festivals and parades. Simply place them along the sidewalk of a chosen route, or use them to block off entire roadways.
