Retractable Barriers

Retractable barriers, also known as a queue barrier or belt barrier is a versatile crowd management system often used in fast food restaurants, shops, and cinemas. They are called retractable due to the nature of the belt system which rolls itself up into the cassette for ease of storage. They come in a wide range of styles from free-standing to wall mounted and have an incredibly wide range of different features. In recent years they have become very popular due to them being a cost-effective and flexible way to organise queues and add efficiency.

We stock a wide variety of belt barriers that are available in a choice of post finishes, base options and belt colours. We even offer belts with printed messages on them. Choose from great value bundle kits or individual belt stanchions including a range of wall mounted and floor standing barriers from Tensator.

About Our Retractable Barriers

It is impossible to go to a high street or shopping centre in the UK without seeing a retractable barrier and for good reason. The simplicity of the belt system and the ability to move the posts easily make creating a queue or crowd control area a simple task.

So what is a retractable barrier? Simply put it is either a free standing post (sometimes called a stanchion) or wall mounted unit that contains a tape belt made from durable material. Think of a measuring tape and the mechanism is similar. To create a barrier you simply clip the belt from one post onto the receiver at the top of another post.

What makes belt barriers even more appealing is that as the belt retracts into the post, they are easy to move and store when not in use.

We have crafted a range of retractable belt barriers to ensure your business stays safe and efficient, whether it be to control the flow of pedestrian foot traffic, for queue barriers, to keep people away from displays or to restrict access to certain areas. You can choose from a wide selection of floor standing and wall mounted barriers available in a choice of post and base styles, colours and belt options. The most popular post colours are black or silver, although yellow is a great choice if you need a bit of extra visibility, for instance to cordon off areas that could be a health and safety hazard. When it comes to the belt design, most people choose a red or black retractable belt, but we also offer many other variations including block colours, alternating stripes or even a printed message.

The amount of barriers you will need depends on the space you are covering and the belt length of your chosen stanchion. The most popular belt length is 2m long, but the retractable nature means they function the same at any distance up to the maximum length of the belt. You will need at least two posts in order to attach the belt from one to the other. Alternatively you can use a wall mounted belt barrier that comes with its own receiver clip.

We know how important belt barriers are to both the safety of your customers and employees so we have ensured all our posts undergo rigorous testing and we only work with brands have have a proven track record of delivering high quality barriers that won't let you down. We are exclusive stockists of the ProQ range of belt barriers as well as being a reseller of Tensabarriers, which are world renowned in the queue management industry.

When it comes to safety, our barriers have features such as slow release belt braking systems so the belt doesn't snap back when released, which could potentially cause an injury.

Most of our range of retractable belt barriers are intended to be used indoors, but we do also offer outdoor belt barriers that can withstand the elements.

You can complete your queue control system with one of our sign holders that attach to the top of the post and enable you to display a printed A4 piece of paper or poster. Perfect for a POS promotion or as an information sign.

As well as individual stanchions, we also offer great value barrier bundle kits. Choose the number of posts you want and save big when compared to buying the posts individually. You can find our bundles at the top of this page.
