The GL-B independent barrier allows sports grounds to incorporate Safe Standing into their existing grandstand seats.

Retro-fitting the GL-B Independent Barrier effectively shields against fan surges during games. It also ensures that the cherished memories associated with existing club seats remain intact. This preservation of seating is paramount to loyal fans.

Consequently, there’s no need for seat removal. Instead, a handrail is carefully installed in front of the seats, in compliance with SGSA regulations.

Following guidance from the Sports Ground Safety Authority, allowing the use of rail seats for fans to stand or sit safely. Subsequently, the GL-R Independent Barrier incorporates a robust metal barrier rail into the existing seating style.
