    PRODUCT DETAILS

    This barrier features a steel base plate that can be screw fixed to the floor. The fixings are then concealed beneath the cover plate.

    The upright supports an elasticated cord that defines restricted access but gives to the touch without tripping or injury. This barrier also features our injection moulded top that helps prevent 'little fingers' from removing the cap.

    We recommend a maximum of 10 feet or 3 metres between these barriers.

    **elastic cord not included**

    Additional Information

    ACCESSORIES FOR THE SCREW FIXED BARRIERS

    You will of course require elasticated cord to go with your stanchion layout.

    Wall terminators are an excellent way to complete some stanchion installations by returning the line of cord back to the wall.

    You can now apply information signage directly to the top of our stanchions by using one of our signage adaptors that will accept our range of aluminum labelholders.

    Our stanchions are supplied complete with an Allen key and that is the only tool you will require to assemble them but if you need more keys, just ask.

    USEFUL TIPS AND GUIDELINES

    It is important to select a stanchion finish that blends well with the environment and minimises visual impact, and to assist this process our standard cord colour is a neutral gray. However in areas where it is important to draw attention to the line we can supply cord in a range of colours that will enhance the contrast. These are white, red or black.

    Because these stanchions have a rigid fixing the tension on the cord can be greater and it is possible to increase the distance between stanchions up to a maximum of approx’ 10'.

    Whenever possible stanchions should be placed in a symmetrical fashion in front of an artwork as this maintains good overall harmony.

    INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

    Stanchions are supplied in packs of two complete with an Allen key for assembly.

    1. Screw the thick baseplate (3/32") to the end of the upright with the countersunk bolt placed through the central hole, and tighten securely with the Allen key. The countersink for the three screwholes will be on the top surface of the baseplate.
    2. Mark out the position of the barriers being careful to ensure that the cord slots on top are inline, and screw into place using a #4 size screws or similar. Normal spacing between barriers is 7'- 8' but this can be increased to 10' on occasion, so long as the tension on the cord is sufficient to maintain a straight and level line.
    3. Place the supplied coverplate over the top of the stanchion and slide down to the base so that it hides all of the fixings.

    Then for PPC barriers, follow these guidelines...

    1. Remove the top caps using your finger or a small screwdriver and tie a simple ‘granny’ knot in the end of the elasticated cord. Pull it very tight and cut off any excess cord close to the knot.
    2. Push the knot into the recess in the top of the upright with the cord exiting through one of the slots and replace the cap.
    3. Pull the cord tight to the next stanchion with enough tension to make a straight line and push into the slots: straight across if it is a straight line or at right angles if it is at a corner.
    4. Repeat step 5 for the last barrier or use a wall terminator.

    Note: In an installation where the object is completely surrounded, instead of two separate knots tie the two ends together with a reef knot, pull very tight and cut off the ends. If required cut off one of the cap legs to accommodate the size of this knot.

    A line of stanchions can also end with the cord attached to the wall with a wall terminator.

    And for stainless steel, follow these...

    1. Unscrew the top cap until there is a gap large enough to insert the cord. Use a small Allen key or screwdriver in the hole on the side of the cap if additional grip is needed.
    2. Insert the end of the cord into the space under the cap and wrap the cord around the stem once or twice and out through one of the slots. Hold the cord in place and screw the cap down.
    3. For intermediate stanchions, pull the cord tight to the next stanchion with enough tension to make a straight line and feed the cord in through one slot, around the cap stem and out through the appropriate slot. Straight through for a line of stanchions and ninety degrees at a corner.
    4. Repeat step 5 for the last stanchion or use a wall terminator.
    5. When the layout is complete, gently tighten all caps to prevent ‘little fingers’ from removing them.

    Note: In an installation where the object is completely surrounded, repeat step 1 with both cord ends. In this instance it is only necessary to wrap once around the stem.

    A line of stanchions can also end with the cord attached to the wall with a wall terminator.
