    PRODUCT DETAILS

    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 neoprene 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.

    **Sold individually**


    **elastic cord not included**

    Additional Information

    ACCESSORIES FOR THE FREESTANDING STANCHION

    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 barriers by using one of our signage adaptors 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.

    USEFUL TIPS AND GUIDELINES

    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.

    If a floor is highly polished the stanchions will need to be closer together (5') than a floor that has plenty of grip, in which case barriers can be spaced further apart (7').

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

    INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR GREY PPC

    1. Assemble the stanchion by removing the bolt from the end of the upright, check that the washer is on the bolt and put it through the hole of the base plate and into the end of the upright. Tighten securely with the Allen Key provided.
    2. Place the stanchions in position to protect the artwork allowing 5' to 7' between each. Be sure to check the cord does not ‘droop’ between stanchions.
    3. 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 push the cap down until you hear a click.
    4. 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.
    5. Repeat step 4 for the last stanchion or use a wall terminator.

    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.

    INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR STAINLESS STEEL

    Stanchions are usually packed 2 per inner box but are sold individually and complete with an Allen key.

    1. Assemble the barrier by placing the stainless steel cover over the heavy black baseplate.
    2. Remove the bolt from the end of the upright, fit the washer onto the bolt and place it through the central hole of the base plate and cover and into the end of the upright. Tighten securely with the Allen Key provided.
    3. Place the barriers in position to protect the artwork allowing 1.5 to 2 metres between each. For the best result be sure to check that the cord does not ‘droop’ between barriers.
    4. When you have the desired layout, lift up the top cap until there is a gap large enough to insert the cord.
    5. 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 push the cap down until you hear a click.
    6. For intermediate barriers, pull the cord tight to the next barrier 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 barriers and ninety degrees at a corner.
    7. Repeat step 5 for the last barrier or use a wall terminator.
    8. When the layout is complete, make sure all caps are pushed down correctly so that the cord is secure on the top of the barrier. Note: 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 barriers can also end with the cord returning to the wall by using a wall terminator.
