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

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, gallery, club or church, post and rope systems will help customers find their way. Any building with a dining hall can benefit from this type of stand. 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.
