Alfresco dining is here to stay. Prepare your outdoor space at your café, restaurant, or bar with our outdoor barrier system. These barriers are a great way of maximizing your outdoor branding opportunities with added custom banners. The posts are finished in a sleek black effect to make your banners stand out even more.
This is a true premium quality option. It has a heavy-duty 13kg base weight, far higher than many competitors, for added stability. It is also a dual rail system to keep graphics taught and ensure they always look great. The smart design also has a floating bottom ring which reduced the wind load on the banner and increases stability. The arms are also designed to be compliant with local authorities' DDA as they act as a tapping rail for the visually impaired. So this system is not only stylish but also extremely functional.
This black cafe barrier system comes with a choice of 3 rail lengths, 1200mm, 1500mm, or an impressive 1800mm. This is the distance between the center of each post, with 1800mm giving you a large expanse and reducing the number of banners needed and ultimately the costs. We also have a range of different banner materials available to suit any budget and style required.
Please note: Although this café barrier system is designed to withstand windy conditions, you will need to respond accordingly to any adverse changes in weather conditions and move the system inside if appropriate.

Whether you're a novice or a professional when it comes to artwork, we're here to give you the guidance needed to make sure your end result is print perfect.
If you have the elements, such as text, logos, and text, we can take these and create a print ready design layout for you at a small additional cost. We have a number of affordable set price packages available to suit any requirements. Many of our products have a design service as an additional extra for instant ordering. For products that don't please contact us to discuss your brief. Visit our in-house design service page to find out more.
Many of our print products have the option to upload your artwork on the product page. If that option is not available, you will receive an email shortly after placing your order with instructions on how to send your artwork files.
In order to avoid any delays in production, please follow our guidelines below to make sure your artwork is ready to go. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch to talk to one of our team.
Resolution - 100dpi At Full Size
Generally, 100 dpi is a good standard for images with the document size set at full size of the large format printed product. For example, if you want to order a 40"×60" print, the image size should be 4000 pixels (40 x 100) by 6000 pixels (60 x 100) at 100 dpi.100% scale at 100 dpi
50% scale at 200 dpi
25% scale at 400 dpi
10% scale at 1000 dpi
If any dimension of the product is greater than 5000mm, please produce the artwork to scale. For very large artwork such as hoarding walls, 10% scale can be utilised at 1000dpi for images, or use vectors as these will scale perfectly.
Bleed - 5mm All Around At The Final Print Size
If you are creating set size artwork for hardware then please use the product template. If you have ordered a custom size product please ensure you include 5mm of bleed on your design.
You only need to add print bleed to your artwork if the design extends to the edge of the page. If all of your text and images are in the centre of the design and are surrounded by a plain white background, you won’t need to worry about print bleed as the edges will blend seamlessly into your overall design. If any element of the design goes right up to the edge of the page, a 5mm bleed on all sides is necessary.
Colours - Please Supply All Colours As CMYK+
Computer screens use RGB, while printers use CMYK. You may ask why this matters? Most colours created in RGB can be closely matched in CMYK but some cannot. If colours are critical we always suggest ordering a printed proof.
Other things you can do to check your colours:- Use a calibrated monitor (colours vary from monitor to monitor)
- Use a printed CMYK colour swatch to check your colours
- Don't check samples from a desktop printer
- Order a printed proof from us (this may cause an increase in lead time)
Fonts - Please Embed, Flatten, Or Convert To Curves
For large format print, we recommend that the minimum font site is 8pt (point size).
Our preferred file format for print-ready artwork is a PDF, please make sure you embed any fonts for perfect results. With other file formats please ensure fonts used in your design are converted to outlines and include all fonts and images used when you send your files to us.
Do You Need A Proof?
If you are providing print ready artwork, we do not provide a proof as standard, which enables us to get your print to you quicker. If you require a proof please get in touch with us to discuss. We do provide a free technical file check as standard, as outlined below.
We can provide a machine print proof for the extra cost of £25 plus delivery. This involves printing an A3 proof on the machine that will be used to produce your final print. This will give you an accurate representation of colour. If you are using our design service, we do send out a PDF proof, which is an accurate representation of content and positioning. It is not an exact indicator of the final colour due to the limitations of screens.
Quoted delivery dates for print are from approval of artwork, so please bear in mind that requesting a proof may delay the delivery date of your product.
After you have placed your order a provisional despatch and delivery date will be sent to you via email.
Our standard delivery time for printed products is 2-5 working days after artwork has been approved for print. If you have a specific deadline, please contact us to ensure we can meet this. Please check that your artwork meets the guidelines above to prevent any delays in approval.
Free Artwork Check
Before we go to print, we will carry out a free technical check on your artwork. If there are any issues, we will contact you to let you know what needs to be changed.
Our printers and media are of the highest standard and are carefully calibrated to produce vibrant, full colour prints. The process involves CMYK printing and this means it is not always possible to match Pantone colours, but they will be converted to the nearest CMYK equivalent.
If exact colour matching is critical, please send us a physical copy of other printed material, such as a letterhead or brochure, and we will check your file prior to printing. If we cannot achieve a reasonable match we will call you to discuss.
Please send any physical examples to: Discount Displays, 31-35 Wortley Road, Croydon, Surrey, CRO 3EB.

Do I need planning permission to use cafe barriers on the pavement?
Rules vary from council to council. Have a look at your local council's web site and search for "highways licence" or it might also be called a "Pavement or street display licence" where you can find more information about local rules and regulations.
Can I buy a replacement banner?
Just go to our replacement banner page here - Replacement Cafe banners for more information.
Can you design the system for me?
We can design the layout and the graphics for you for free. For graphics, send us your information including logos, text and colours that you want to appear in the design and our in house design team will create a cafe banner for you. We also offer a free space design service. Let us know the area and dimensions preferably with a sketch and we will work out the most economical and effective solution for you. Also have a read of our handy Cafe Barrier Guide Cafe Barrier Buyers Guide for more information.
Is the system pedestrian-friendly?
The base is very stable and the use of top and bottom crossbars meet the local authority Disability Discrimination Act Requirements (DDA). The bottom rail also acts as a tapping rail for the visually impaired.
How many crossbars can you fit each post?
There are four slots to attaching crossbars which means you can use straight runs or 90-degree corners. If you were using the cafe barriers for pedestrian guidance for example outside a night club you could attach up to four poles to each base.
Can I mix different sized crossbars for this outdoor restaurant cafe barrier system?
Sure the systems are all very versatile. The posts are the same regardless of the distance between them the only thing that changes is the width of the cross member and therefore the size of your banner. Obvious the longer the crossbar the fewer post you require and the cheaper the system. Where you might need a shorter crossbeam is for example to create an entranceway or if the length you are trying to enclose is not divisible by the longest length.
Should I choose a single or double side print?
Most of the banners we sell are single-sided since the back is often obscure by customers or furniture so customers save any extra expense. Please note the rear of a standard PVC, Mesh or Fabric banner is white.
How do you attach the banner to the cafe barrier hardware?
Our Standard cafe barrier banner is easy to fit and secure. It has pockets in the top and bottom of the banner through which the crossbars slide. Our standard system is easy to assemble in a matter of minutes!
Is the standard cafe barrier OK for windy locations?
It has a heavier base than our economic system so is better suited to windier conditions especially when used with mesh banners. The premium system has an even heavier base so will withstand stronger winds. Being a free-standing structure all cafe barrier systems can be affected by strong winds so if heavy winds are forecast considered taking the system down or at least removing the banners.
Does the sun fade Cafe Banners?
Our banners are printed using UV resistant inks but bear in mind any full colour printed fabric will fade if left in direct sunlight over a few years, this includes our PVC and Fabric Cafe Banners.
Can I use these cafe barrier systems outside?
The Standard Cafe Barrier system is made from weather-resistant stainless steel and is just as at home outdoor as indoors. Our graphics are also fully weatherproof and the polyester canvas graphics are far more resilient to the elements than standard canvas banners.
Will the base scratch my floor?
The base standard cafe barrier system has a non-marking base and is safe to use on all floor types.
