    -The Q-cord retractable stanchion system is the new definition of convenient architectural crowd control. Join the hundreds of distinguished locations around the world that are using the Q-cord to elegantly guide and distance their patrons.

    -The Q-cord is a retractable crowd control barrier that comes with 7 feet of cord. The Q-cord is the smallest diameter retractable barrier in the world. It has a beautiful brushed stainless-steel exterior and is made in the USA with marine grade components. It is easy to set up and rearrange and is available freestanding, Screw fixed, Socket mounted, or with a Magnetic base. It is completely made in the USA and is designed to exceed ADA requirements.

    -We have optional signage products available that are extremely useful for informing your guests. Use our signs to direct, socially distance, Inform, and engage. Signage is available in a variety of sizes and must be used with a signage cap which comes in 60 degree or vertical configurations.

    -Hand Sanitizer Cap provides a convenient and durable way for you to mount your favorite hand sanitizer dispenser onto the top of your existing Q-Cord barriers. Add one at the start of your queue and wherever you would like visitors to have to ability to sanitize their hands. Includes a 4x6 Label holder for displaying your message or encourage clients to use the sanitizer.

    -Add our QC-WTSS, Q-cord Wall Terminator, to your order to allow the barrier to end at a wall. This is particularly useful for closing off a hallway or creating an airgap from a wall to keep hands from touching things they should not be touching.

    -In response to our clients asking for an attractive solution for selective access control we have added the Quick release connector (QC-QRC). Use the Quick release connector anywhere a security guard or similar personnel will be frequently allowing selective access. The Quick release connector is only to be used in attended situations.

    Additional Information

    Museum Display and Queue Barriers

    Museum barriers are typically used to queue and control visitors throughout a museum or institution. Taller barriers are usually used for crowd control in directing foot traffic in a particular path or direction. Shorter barriers can be used for surrounding items such as works of art to keep visitors from touching or getting too close. There are a number of barrier options that can be used, such as belts or ropes, but most museums prefer the more refined sophisticated approach of a straight cord. This gives a nice clean look that does not distract from the object being viewed.

    Museum stanchions should also adhere to ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) standards. The belt or cord on a typical barrier is too high. According to the ADA, the cord or belt must be cane detectable and located within 27 inches off of the finished floor or ground.

    The new Q-Cord Retractable Barrier is made by 10-31 Inc., which is one meter(39.375") high and has two retractable cords. The lower cord is half a meter(19.75”) off of the ground to be ADA compliant.

    Below is the info from the ADA website:

    From 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design2

    307 Protruding Objects

    307.1 General. Protruding objects shall comply with 307.

    307.2 Protrusion Limits. Objects with leading edges more than 27 inches (685 mm) and not more than 80 inches (2030 mm) above the finish floor or ground shall protrude 4 inches (100 mm) maximum horizontally into the circulation path.

    EXCEPTION: Handrails shall be permitted to protrude 4 1/2 inches (115 mm) maximum.

    Advisory 307.2 Protrusion Limits. When a cane is used and the element is in the detectable range, it gives a person sufficient time to detect the element with the cane before there is body contact. Elements located on circulation paths, including operable elements, must comply with requirements for protruding objects. For example, awnings and their supporting structures cannot reduce the minimum required vertical clearance. Similarly, casement windows, when open, cannot encroach more than 4 inches (100 mm) into circulation paths above 27 inches (685 mm).
