Pedestrian Barrier

Date of origin: Not known
Author/inventor/context: Qingdao Yongchang Suye Co., Ltd.

The Pedestrian Barrier, like other portable security fences, is used for general crowd control and demarcation and can be finished in several ways: painted and hot dipped galvanized or hot galvanized only. It has a fixed leg that can be delivered to site and assembled without any additional fastenings, and arguably typifies the “solid mid-sized objects” that philosopher Ray Brassier sees as defined by our common sense understanding of the world. Once deployed, it produces both isolation and kinship in other objects depending on which side of the barrier those objects lie. Its manufacturers also provide an OEM service.
