Floor-Mounted Barrier - Timber

The Floor-Mounted Barrier for timber floors provides an extremely discreet protection for artwork and is ideal for more permanent displays.

Floor-Mounted Barrier - Timber

Subtly Effective

Our Floor Mounted Barrier system is ideally suited to a more permanent display and has the added benefit of appearing more discreet than the Freestanding version whilst still indicating that visitors should not touch the exhibits. Its neutral finish and simple clean lines sit comfortably within the museum and gallery environment, gently reminding the public of it’s presence without clashing with the display or decor. PLEASE NOTE, WE HAVE LIMITED STOCK ON THIS ITEM. Please contact a member of our Sales Team on (01769) 572 389 to discuss your requirement.

Neat Cord Perimeter

The clever bit is a stretchy cord, that fits snugly into the top of each post, drawing a neat line in the air, avoiding the distraction of that dreadful droopy rope, and because the elasticated cord makes a straight line, it blends with the architecture of the building, helping the barriers to become less obvious and ensuring the artwork is the object of attention.

The Floor Mounted Timber version of our barrier systems has an upright that fits snugly into a stainless steel floor socket and supports the elasticated cord which defines restricted access, but gives to the touch thus avoiding tripping or injury. This socket has a small flange at the top that allows it to be screwed to the floor.

If required, the uprights can be removed and the socket filled with a flush fitting plug that leaves a smooth trip free stainless circle of 60mm diameter.

Dimensions and Finish

Our Floor-Mounted Timber Barriers are available in two hardwearing versions; stainless steel or mild steel with a powder coated finish. The barriers are 390mm high with a socket of 25mm diameter and 70mm height that provides a discreet fixing. The collar is 60mm in diameter and the upright has a diameter of 20mm.

Other sizes and finishes are available on request.

Useful Tips and Guidelines

It is important to select a barrier finish that will blends well with the environment and minimises visual impact and to assist this process, our standard cord colour is a neutral grey. 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, black or yellow.

Because these barriers have a rigid fixing, the tension on the cord can be greater and it is possible to increase the distance between barriers up to a maximum of approximately 2.5 metres.

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

The stem of the socket is knurled to provide additional fixing if you wish to use an epoxy resin to reinforce the screw fixing.
