Retractable Crowd Control Barrier Features and Benefits
Retractable crowd control barriers are among the most popular stanchion for public facilities with high volumes of foot-traffic. For instance airports, bus stations, and shopping malls can all become very crowded and therefore require intentionality for crowd control.
Retractable crowd control barriers are popular for these kinds of uses because they have built in retractable belts rather than hanging ropes. These retractable belts can be expanded and retracted as needed, which helps customers create complex line formations without any permanent structures.
Here are some of the features which are most useful in retractable crowd control barriers:
- Customizable retracting belts which are available in many colors or with custom messaging
- 4 way belt receiver and belt ends which easily attach to other barriers' belt receivers
- Weighted bases to offer stability for free-standing stanchion posts
- Sloping bases which help prevent tripping incidents
