Are large operational groups with multiple stadia and arenas in their portfolios doing enough to address sustainability issues, or should the onus lie with individual venues to reduce their environmental footprint?

Mojo Barriers launches Gatekeeper for sports industry

Mojo Barriers has launched the ‘Gatekeeper’: a unique turnstile system with integrated scanning capabilities, ideal for access control at sporting events and venues.

The crowd control company unveiled the new product at the FIM Motocross World Championships in Valkenswaard, Holland earlier this month, where 10 of the temporary units were used at entrances across the site to manage the access and egress of the 10,000-strong crowd.

Gatekeeper offers one secure system that manages all aspects of entry and exit into events, venues and designated areas (such as VIP or staff only). An intelligent portable turnstile, it links directly to a central computer system, which gives accurate, real-time capacity data. Quick to install and secure into position, the Gatekeeper incorporates full scanning capabilities and is compatible with any scanning methods.

“With the rise of RFID, QR codes and mobile phone ticketing, and the vast amount of data these can garner for event organisers and sponsors, there was a requirement from clients for a hardware solution which hosted these technologies,” said Cees Muurling, Mojo Barriers managing director. “We work in partnership with event organizers, ticketing and scanning companies to reduce ticket fraud by combining a solid physical barrier – the Gatekeeper – with the latest ticket scanning methods. This not only vastly improves security but negates the need for hand scanners and the labour required to operate them.”

The Gatekeeper can be combined with Mojo Barriers’ standard temporary barrier system to create a robust segregation line with entrance points and emergency exits.
