Simple, effective, and suited to more static layouts, the Surface Mounted Q Barrier post has a small base plate that is attached to the floor with four fixings (screws or expansion bolts) providing a rigid installation to support our discreet elasticated cord that offers an upgraded, modern alternative to the traditional droopy rope installations. A thin stainless steel cover then hides the fixings providing a clean uncluttered finish.

The proportions and detailing have been designed to complement museum and gallery environments with clean lines and neutral finishes. Our Signage Plate will attach easily and securely to the barrier using a Q Barrier Signage Adaptor to assist with informing and directing visitors.

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 and straight line between barriers.

This barrier will work well in a variety of layouts, ensuring that you can effectively manage a queue, directing visitors in a clear and concise manner. However, the design of this barrier means it can also be used to protect exhibits.
