Stanchions for Crowd Control - Post & Rope, Retractable Belt & Café Barrier Systems

July 29, 2014

what is a stanchion What exactly are "Stanchions"? They are, simply, the posts or supports for barrier-based crowd control systems. Forming crowds of customers into orderly lines and queues and blocking access to restricted areas can be difficult without the proper crowd control tools. Although tape or belt stanchions are frequently associated with red carpet events and artistic premiers, they also provide businesses across all industries with everyday functionality as well as style. Whether you operate a small restaurant or a sprawling theater multiplex, a bank, club or gallery, post and rope systems will help customers find their way. Traditional stanchion-based post-and-barrier systems, also called crowd control barriers, are available in many styles, including retractable belt systems and velvet ropes with clip-on hooks. Other choices include plain or custom-printed café barriers that combine branded marketing with crowd control. offers a visual gallery showing our exceptional assortment of colors, styles and options for belts, posts, ropes, connecting hardware and stanchion accessories for sale.

What types of crowd control barriers do we offer?

gold finish stanchion base
Historically, the "red carpet" has been the end-all-be-all, the apex, the top of the heap in elegant, exclusive affairs, followed closely by the "velvet rope." Well, move over, Red Carpet, there's a new gold standard in stanchion barriers! Literally. Well, almost literally. In addition to traditional silver metal and modern-looking black, we offer polished brass posts for a gold finish stanchion base. Real gold, of course, would be both too heavy and too expensive for commercial use (not to mention being a security nightmare in and of itself), but the polished brass has a rich, elegant golden color that complements any environment (and any rope or belt, including red velvet!). Elegance, style, even glamour — a simple change of finish color can add all these, and more, to any environment. Our ever-increasing catalog of stanchion finishes, sizes and styles allows users to easily browse through every single item in our massive collection of crowd control barrier systems and accessories to find the perfect match.

What separates one retractable belt barrier system from another?
