Rapid Stop Barrier

Protect pedestrians at events

Australia is home to many great events each year, attracting massive crowds. Unfortunately, these events are sometimes a target for terrorism.

In this day and age, event management teams have to go the extra mile to be sure crowds are safe, and are able to be efficiently evacuated if there is an emergency.


That’s why our fleet at Road Safety Rental offers the Rapid Stop Barrier. These temporary barriers for hire stop vehicles in their tracks, and are fully portable. They offer event managers a proven solution to mitigate the risk of hostile and errant vehicle entry into events or work zone areas.

The product has been designed to offer maximum protection, quick deployment and peace of mind for event organisers and patrons for any sizeable event or festival.

Benefits of choosing the Rapid Stop Barrier include:


This type of temporary errant vehicle protection for rent has been independently crash tested to confirm it can stop a 2270kg pickup travelling at 60km/h. For full details refer to NATA test report 21140 01.


Rapid Stop Barrier is unobtrusive and allowing free flow of foot traffic through the system, even allowing easy access for prams and wheelchairs. It does not inhibit the timely evacuation of pedestrians in case of an emergency.


Our hostile vehicle protection for hire is freestanding and unanchored, which allows easy installation for temporary applications - the only requirement is a flat surface!

Frankston City Council - Christmas Festival of Lights

The organising committee of the Christmas Festival of Lights, which is one of Melbourne’s largest and most iconic street festivals, needed to ensure the protection the crowds enjoying the event, held on Saturday the 30th of November.

The event offers a magical night of fun, entertainment and festivity. There are many free activities, such as live theatre, rides, food trucks and visits with Santa. The night wraps up with an impressive fireworks display. It attracts upwards of 50,000 people, and is the largest free Christmas event in Victoria.

Unfortunately, major events such as this can be a target for hostile vehicle attacks, which is why the safety of attendees was at the forefront of the organisers minds.


Errant Vehicle Protection Hire Melbourne

Road Safety Rental, were engaged by contractor, Frankston City Council, to provide a safety solution for the closed roads in the Frankston CBD that could contain a hostile vehicle and protect pedestrians. The solution needed to allow the flow of pedestrians, including those with prams or wheelchairs, and the quick access of emergency vehicles if required.

Feedback from the event manager was that the use of the Rapid Stop Barrier had made a vital contribution to the success of this year’s event. Our client was most impressed with this product and the protection it offered, whilst simplifying emergency services ingress and egress through the innovative gate solution.

Because the Rapid Stop Barrier is fully crash tested, it allows event management to have complete peace of mind that it will contain a dangerous driver, whether intentional or accidental. The system did not slow the entry or dispersement of the large crowds, and the access gates allowed for the fast entry of an ambulance which was required during the evening.
