This barrier is the standard in many of the world's major museums.The stable steel base and upright supports an elastic cord that defines restricted access but gives to the touch without tripping or injury. The base is cushioned with slip resistant polyurethane pads to improve grip and protect polished floor surfaces.We recommend a maximum of 7 feet or 2 meters between barriers when planning your layout.
Made in the USA!
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 barriers by using one of our signage adapters that will accept our range of aluminum label holders.
Our stanchions are supplied complete with an Allen key and that is the only tool you will require to assemble them.
It is important to select a stanchion finish that blends well with the environment and minimizes visual impact, and to assist this process our standard cord color is grey. However in areas where it is important to draw attention to the line we can supply cord in a range of colors that will enhance the contrast. These are white, red or black.
The finish of the floor can have an impact on spacing the barriers as a polished floor can sometimes allow barriers to slide easier.
Whenever possible stanchions should be placed in a symmetrical fashion in front of an artwork as this maintains good overall visual harmony.
In an installation where the object is completely surrounded, repeat step 5 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 returning to the wall by using a wall terminator.
