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

August 26, 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?

A simple "Please Wait Here" floor sign may not strike anyone as an important business marketing artifact, but successful brands know that the difference is always in the details. The difference, that is, between an undecided potential patron and a smiling potential return customer. In addition to our post-top stanchion signs with stock messages, such as the ever-popular Please Wait Here floor sign, we offer our customers the ability to easily order single-or-double-sided post-top signage with custom messaging. Individualized labels, wayfinding directions and even ads that reflect a brand's voice and style can be worth their weight in gold to creating a bond between customer and business. However, for those businesses that simply need standard signage, our stock messaging might be just the ticket. Every business has its own look, its own "feel," and its own branding. So whether you need off-the-rack or customized crowd control stanchions or barrier sets, StanchionsDirect can help.

What separates one retractable belt barrier system from another?

In addition to our huge selection of stock models, our live inventory is home to customizable café barriers, portable poles with built-in wheels, and accessories for deploying the poles. Deciding on the right model should take information such as volume, frequency of use, traffic, and aesthetics into account. While some customers are in search of bulk quantities designed to outfit festivals, others are in the market for a simple line formation tool. No matter which style you ultimately choose, you can be sure that you are getting great value and fast shipping from StanchionsDirect.
