Appropriate and effective signage such as; crowd control barriers, floor stickers and washing hands signs are not only necessary but vital in the current landscape.

Crowd Control Barriers:

Mesh Direct’s Crowd Control Barriers are excellent for restaurants, cafes, construction sites and events to keep individuals segregated from each other thus assisting in the enforcement of social distancing. They are a great way to provide a physical and mental reminder to stay the governed 1.5 metres apart too. The benefit of using crowd control barriers as social distancing signs is that they are mobile which provides on-site flexibility. Moreover, they are a great way of instilling physical order and social movement at your event or business. 

Floor Stickers:


Both indoor and outdoor Floor Stickers are an imperative part of reminding people to keep a safe distance from one another and displays the safe standing distance. The indoor stickers are made of anti-slip laminate, whilst the outdoor ones are asphalt anti-slip decals, thus making sure in both scenarios crowds are safe from tripping on or over any stickers.
