What are magnetic wall mounted belt barriers and what are they used for?
Magnetic wall mounted belt barriers attach directly to magnetic surfaces to provide retractable belts without interrupting floor space. This makes them especially convenient in areas with lots of foot traffic or moving machinery such as warehouses or airports. The belts retract from a cartridge much like a standard retractable belt barrier, but the cartridge housing can be attached directly to the wall and the belt can attach to any other magnetic surface such as a doorway or door frame.

Frequently Asked Questions: Wall Mounted Belt Barriers
Q: How does the belt end attach to the wall?
A: Our wall mounted belt barriers come with receivers which fasten to the opposite wall. These receivers can be magnetic (to receive magnetic belt ends) or clips (to receive standard belt ends).
Q: How does the belt cartridge attach to the wall?
A: The wall mounted belt barrier housing can be attached to the wall in a variety of ways. For instance magnetic wall mounted belt barriers have magnets to attach to magnetic surfaces. Standard fixed wall mounted belt barriers can be fastened to the wall with standard hardware. Or there are removable plates which can be attached to the wall for the cartridge to clip on and off as needed, as well as warehouse rack mounts, and clamp mounts for poles or posts.
Q: Are the wall mounted belts compatible with standard retractable belt barriers (so that they can clip into standard stanchion posts?)
A: Yes, our belt ends are created to be compatible across products so that a wall mounted belt can clip into a standard stanchion top. Most brands are compatible as well.
Q: What if I lose or break the wall mount receiver?
A: We sell wall mount receivers separately for this purpose.
Q: Are wall mounted belt barriers suitable for outdoor use?
A: Wall mounted retractable belt barriers can withstand limited outdoor use, but extended outdoor use is not good for retractable belts of this kind.
Q: How does the belt breaking system work?
A: The belt breaking system is an internal design to help slow the retraction of the belt to a safe and reasonable speed. This will function automatically upon retraction and you do not need to operate that system.
Q: Could this belt extend at an angle?
A: When extending the belt, you'll want to pull the belt straight outward, but it can be clipped into a wall at an angle.
