    This barrier features a magnetic base that holds to a plate that is attached to the floor. 

    The upright supports an elasticated cord that defines restricted access but gives to the touch without tripping or injury.

    We recommend a maximum of 7 feet between these barriers.

    Things you'll Need:


    Elastic Cord (75 foot rolls)

    Wall terminators (Possibly)

    **Sold individually**

    **elastic cord not included**



    Stanchions are sold individually.

    Note: The adhesive pad included with this product is industrial strength and once applied, cannot be moved or repositioned. Position carefully!

    1. Prepare the flooring: Smooth surfaces should be wiped clean with isopropyl alcohol. Porous surfaces (wood, particleboard, rough concrete, etc.) need to be sealed to provide a unified surface.
    2. Watch out for dirty surface (dust, oil, dirt, etc.), temperatures below 50 °F, moisture, and low surface energy materials (silicone paints, slippery plastics, etc.)
    3. Determine the queue configuration. Position all posts (without the magnetic plate) prior to applying the adhesive and mark the floor for each posts position with a removable mark.
    4. Remove the protective backing from the adhesive pad on the magnetic plate and place the exposed adhesive onto each spot that has been marked.
    5. Allow adhesive to cure for 24 hours without the post attached. Adhesive is pressure sensitive so press down firmly, briefly stand on plate, and if possible, apply weight during curing.
    6. After cure is complete, determine the cord direction, align base to receiver plate at an angle, and gently rock post into position.

    A line of stanchions can also end with the cord returning to the wall by using a wall terminator.

    Additional Information


    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.


    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.

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