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.
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.
Then for PPC barriers, follow these guidelines...
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...
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.
