RETRACTABLE BARRIERS & STANCHIONS

Retractable Barriers and Stanchions are typically used to queue and control visitors throughout a museum or institution. They can also surround items such as works of art to keep visitors from touching or getting too close. Rather than traditional rope and belt barriers, most museums prefer the more refined approach of a straight cord. Q-Cord gives a clean look that does not distract from the object being viewed.

Q-CORD VS. RETRACTABLE BELT BARRIER

SLEEK & DISCREET INFORMATION SOLUTIONS

Q-Cord™ Retractables can also be paired with many of the Museum Sign products for displaying information and guiding the visitor experience.

Retractable barriers should adhere to ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) standards. The belt or cord on a typical barrier is too high. According to the ADA, the cord or belt must be cane detectable and located within 27 inches off of the ground surface. Q-Cord Retractables already meet these ADA requirements.

A SLEEK LOOK WITH A LOW PROFILE

Q-Cord™ Art Stanchion barriers have the same clean, architectural look and feel as the Q-Cord Retractables line, but in a smaller form for discreet use in galleries and exhibitions. The new, exclusive Twist & Lock Tops prevent loss of component parts and ensures the system retains it sleekly designed look over time. Q-Cord Art Stanchions allow for positioning with either a freestanding or magnetic base, floor socket or screw fixed floor plate and create a clear division between what they surround and separate without disturbing sightlines to the exhibit.
