Tensabarriers for retail sales events were popular

January 3, 2015

Christmas is synonymous for present giving, carols, evenings in front of the TV and eating and drinking too much.  Likewise, the Boxing Day sales are now almost a tradition for many, although this year it was interesting to see how some retailers started to discount their prices in December - something that simply would not have happened even 5 years ago.  The advent of Black Friday had a lot to do with this, with many people taking advantage of an American tradition which has now worked its way over to the UK.

Tensabarrier Hire from Event Hire UK

It was interesting to see how demand for Event Hire UK's equipment went up as a result of the Boxing Day sales across the UK, most specifically for tensabarrier hire.  You often see tensabarriers at airports, large concerts or any other large scale events where the event organisers are expecting to have to manage large volumes of people. 

Some well known retailers used tensabarriers rental to ensure that they were able to manage their expectant shoppers effectively this year on Boxing Day, with some queues at well known shopping locations such as Westfield in London and the Bullring in Birmingham seeing thousands of shoppers queueing from the early hours to try to be first line to grab a bargain.

Tensabarriers are highly verstaile, lightweight and easily transported.  They are approximately one metre in height and have a two metre retractable webbing which is used to guide large volumes of people.  Used in the right numbers and in the right locations, they can be highly effective.  This is why some high street retailers chose to hire tensabarriers from Event Hire UK as part of their Boxing Day sale plans and as part of their overall barrier hire requirements.
