Freestanding Barrier

The Freestanding Barrier discreetly protects artwork
without clashing with the display or decor.

Freestanding Barrier

Stable and Neutral

The Freestanding Barrier is designed to complement an exhibition and gallery environment, and discreetly remind visitors not to touch. The stable steel base and upright supports an elasticated cord that defines restricted access, and gently gives to the touch, thus avoiding tripping or injury. Slip resistant neoprene pads improve grip and protect floor surfaces.

Discreetly Protective

When surrounding an exhibit the neutral finish and clean lines sit comfortably within the museum and gallery environment. An elastic cord connects the barriers and draws a straight line in the air, blending with the architecture of the building and ensuring that the artwork is the object of attention. If choosing to define the protected space more sharply, the elasticated cord is available in red, white and black, highlighting the boundary of the exhibit. Our Freestanding Barriers have modular accessories such as Wall Terminators that allow clean tie-backs direct to the wall, and Signage Adaptors that when used with our Label Holders, transform the Barriers into an informative venue.

Dimensions and Finish

Freestanding Barriers are available in mild steel with a Powder Coated or Stainless Steel finish. They come in two sizes: 400mm high with a 232mm diameter base or 1000mm high with a 335mm diameter base. All of the uprights are 20mm in diameter.
The finish on our coloured barriers uses a powder that is baked onto the surface to give a long life, and even the base weight is stainless steel, no cheap and nasty castings here....heck, even the bolt is stainless steel.

Useful Tips and Guidelines

Our Freestanding Barriers are entirely constructed in the UK using high quality materials and the latest manufacturing techniques to provide a product that will stand the test of time in even the most demanding environments.

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

If the floor is highly polished, the barriers will need to be closer together (1.5m) than a floor that has plenty of grip, in which case, barriers can be spaced further apart (2m).

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