Roll and Fold Crowd Control System

Portable Crowd Control

Managing congestion in public spaces can be a difficult task. This is where the roll and fold system shines, offering an effective, attractive and unrivaled crowd management solution.

The system’s lightweight design allows it to be easily moved from one location to another according to public traffic. To top it off, the roll and fold system is completely self-supporting, requiring no additional support structures such as stanchions or rails.

Rest Easy About The Secured Area Staying Secured

The Roll and Fold is fully self-supporting. The hinges open to a maximum of 140° to ensure staff can’t accidentally open it so wide that it falls over when deploying. The casters are lockable to prevent accidental drift.

If you need to lock the Roll and Fold in place for any length of time, you can request locking wall posts or posts that bolt to the floor.

Send The Right Message With The Right Design

You can achieve a variety of looks with the Roll and Fold to send a stronger or softer security message, and harmonize with the branding of the space.

Construction options include rod and link, clear polycarbonate panels, and perforated steel for a mesh-like effect. All aluminum parts are available in a variety of anodized and powder coat colors.

Circumvents Existing Structures In Larger Spaces

It’s easy to get around obstacles like support columns or kiosks in larger spaces. Just let us know about any existing features your Roll and Fold has to get around, and we’ll provide the right width.

Roll and Fold Crowd Control on Patio

Roll and Fold Crowd Control System

This crowd control system is extremely popular with airports and other large venues that want a barrier system that’s easy to move and doesn’t require floor or ceiling tracks.

Restaurants love them to block access to patios when they’re not in service, and they’re also great for securing areas under renovation in larger spaces.

Frequently Asked Questions

The standard height from floor to top of panels is 6 foot 6 inches. This is not a high security partition; it is designed to keep honest people honest.

For width, there isn’t really a maximum. The maximum panels we recommend without a bipart connection is 7 panels. Location circumstances can raise or lower that number.

Not alone. Moving the product to and from the storage area requires two people. The non-marring rollers allow the Roll and Fold to travel smoothly. The anti-sway latches assist moving the partition safely by keeping the panels spread apart to avoid tipping.

No. The Roll and Fold is extremely flexible and does not use a track system.

Locking posts work the same as standard side folding post. The hook bolt lead locking post is the most common to secure the partition to a wall or shelving. This post could be used on both ends. The other type of lead post is a bipart. This combination post is commonly used on larger openings to lock two partitions together. A fixed end post is just that, permanently attached to a structure. This post can be used if the partition is not stacking to a remote location.

No. Floor sockets can be of use only if the partition needs to follow a specific lease line. The Lock Rod and floor socket can help keep the partition in position. Not highly recommended because the Lock Rod can be pull out of the floor socket.

The stacked partitions actual depth will vary to the number of panels that comprise the curtain used to secure the opening. Using 2 inches per panel by the width of the widest panel and add a couple of inches for clearance should get you close. Consult factory for an accurate estimate.
