Product Description

We designed this 'full height' barrier system to guide and control visitors. It is ideally suited to directing the flow of visitors at entrances to exhibits, for ticketing or handling large numbers. It is both a physical and visual message dictating accessibility and ensuring that queuing is an orderly and defined process.

The proportions and detailing have been designed to complement museum, gallery and display environments with clean lines and neutral finishes, although is suited to use in all environments requiring a queueing or visitor guidance solution.

The Q barrier features a wide stable base plate, straight post and tamper proof cap which supports our discreet elastic cord that replaces those dreadful droopy ropes. Simple, effective and ideally suited for flexible layouts.

There is also a range of signage options that will attach easily and securely to the barrier to assist with informing and directing visitors.

  • Stable base with non-skid/scratch pads

We recommend up to 2.5 metres as the ideal spacing between barriers, but this can be adjusted slightly to suit individual layouts.

For the best finish it is important to ensure that the cord maintains a level straight line between barriers.
