ABOUT MOJO® RENTAL
MOJO® Barriers is born from a desire within Holland-based Mojo Concerts to improve management of crowds through the deployment of safe and sustainable barrier options for live events. MOJO® Barriers steel barrier products are an instant success being used for the next decade by major touring artists including Prince, U2 and the Rolling Stones.
MOJO® Barriers develops an aluminium barrier system which is quickly introduced to the market. The change in material from steel to aluminium results in a forty per cent weight saving, meaning the product is much more cost effective to both transport and set up. This aluminium barrier is MOJO® Barriers’ most successful product, continuing to set standards across the industry and be copied by many over a decade later.
MOJO® Barriers launches its UK office near London. The UK office has gone on to work at major festivals and events across the country including tours like Katy Perry and the Foo Fighters, festivals such as Reading and Glastonbury and a vast array of other events including film premiers, council, retail and sporting events.
Mojo Barriers launches its USA office, now based in Pennsylvania, which is headed up J.B Dolphin and provides barriers to a wide range of sectors across the United States.
A section of aluminium barrier is showcased in an exhibition at the Museum Of Modern Art (MOMA). The New York based museum held an exhibition called ‘SAFE: Design Takes On Risk’. One of the strangest, yet coolest, things to happen in Mojo Barriers’ history!
Mojo Barriers develops the Barrier Load Monitor System (BLMS). The BLMS is a new system designed to measure the pressure applied to a barrier by crowds and represents a significant step forwards in health and safety of crowds attending live events.
Mojo Barriers launches a research programme utilising the BLMS and in partnership with Bucks New University. Launched at Roskilde Festival in Denmark the research aims to provide – for the first time – scientific research on the best barrier configurations to keep crowds safe; the research is ongoing to date.
Mojo Barriers launches its Gatekeeper system, a unique turnstile product which captures real time data and can be used for event entrance sites and VIP areas.
A year overshadowed by the tragic and unexpected death of Mojo Barriers MD Patrick Jordan; a shock to the company and the industry as a whole. Patrick was a great man who was highly respected and his loss continues to be felt to this day.
Mojo Barriers expands its UK presence even further, opening a Northern office in York, allowing the company to offer a seamless service to events across the country.
Mojo Barriers continues to expand a network over 14 international distributors, which most recently include New Zealand and Norway. This global expansion enables Mojo Barriers to support international tours and local shows with equipment and expertise across the global stage barrier market.
Ongoing research and development suggest that two exciting new products are to be launched this year which will revolutionise the live event industry. Watch this space.
