Watch this quick informative video to see exactly how our clients are using their stanchion posts and barriers to control the flow of their customers and patrons!
Stanchion posts are needed for social distancing, crowd control, and preventing chaos when multiple people come together at a spot and have to either wait or move within a defined area.
These are some of the most frequently asked questions about crowd control stanchions:
What are Stanchions?
A stanchion is a strong upright post that is designed to control the flow of a crowd. When you attach multiple stanchions together then you can essentially restrict any area, create any sized line or create an organized path through any sized venue.
There are 3 main types of stanchion posts…
- Retractable Belt Barriers – These are posts that have retractable belts that can be pulled out to any length that’s needed for an area. These are VERY versatile as they’re easily moved and adapted for different situations. They come in steel posts with classy belts for your retail area or even heavy duty plastic with caution messages printed on them for warehouse or construction sites.
- Post and Rope Barriers – These are the classic stanchions you’ll see at higher end venues. Think of the roped off areas at any red carpet event, a museum or a high end restaurant or club.
- Plastic Post and Chain Barriers – These are used more often outdoors and you’ll see them in places like school drop offs, the local zoo or a park where they’d like to stop foot traffic from a grassy area.
What are Stanchions Made Of?
Stanchion posts are typically made of one of two things: Metal or Plastic.
Plastic Stanchions are made of plastic rather than metal, making them lightweight and immune to most types of weather damage. Additionally, plastic stanchion posts typically have a hollow base that is designed to be filled with sand, gravel, or water for added strength and weight.
Metal stanchions are heavier and are designed to stand up to a more aggressive crowd. They’re also a touch classier and are typically used indoors for customer line creations, VIP areas, airports and such.
However, we also carry heavy-duty metal and plastic stanchions that are known for their sturdy construction and weather resistance and are often found at industrial sites.
