PVC Crowd Barriers

Duralock offer a wide variety crowd barrier fencing systems for racing and equestrian facilities around the globe.

When live animals and members of the public are in proximity there is a high risk of accidents occurring.

That’s why our steel re-enforced concrete posts encased in PVC combined with fence panel infills are used extensively on racecourses around the world. Typically crowd barrier solutions are installed permanently in paddocks, parade rings, horse walkways or along grandstands. However, we can manufacture extended fence posts to enable removable installation. Weighted feet are also available meaning that the systems can be transformed into temporary crowd barrier solutions.

Crowd barrier with Mesh

Duralock mesh infill crowd barrier is used at over 400 racing and equestrian facilities around the world. The unique steel mesh specification is powder-coated and integrated within the fencing systems thus removing sharp edges. This crowd barrier solution can be provided with a top leaning rail to enhance crowd and spectator experience. This system is typically manufactured at 1200mm high however we can manufacture any height to suit your requirements of the requirements determined by the ground condition or level.

Crowd barrier with Tube

Duralock crowd barrier with Tube is used extensively around the world and provides a different visual appearance to the mesh. The Tubes are made from PVCu, meaning that the whole system is made up entirely of PVCu components. The height of the tubes can be altered to alter the look of the system. A smaller tube height would transform the system into a Chantilly design, which was first installed at the prestigious Chantilly racecourse.

Coloured Crowd barrier

All Duralock crowd barrier products are available in white, brown, or green PVC.

Crowd Barrier with race rail

If you are looking to install crowd barrier solutions on horse walks open to the public then it is of paramount importance to install an additional line of race rail to act as a buffer rail between crowd and horse.


If you are looking for access points into your fence line, then Duralock can manufacture a wide variety of bespoke gates to match your infill design. Single gates are available from widths of 1.2M gates to 3M. Specialist rolling gates can be manufactured to a total width of 6 meters.

We are extremely happy with the enduring quality of their products and the exceptional customer service they provide.
