Strategies to Buy Crowd Control Stanchions

1) Determine the length of your queue. Know how much area you have to work with. You can purchase a combination of retractable belt lengths or varied lengths ropes or chain to maximize your configuration.

2) Consider your height and use. Retractable barriers typically come in 40″ height but also come with dual lines to meet ADA requirements. Dual line barriers also keep people from “jumping” into line too easily.

3) Choose a finish and color. Crowd control barriers come in plastic or steel. Plastic barriers come in brighter colors, and are lightweight. Steel barriers are more stable and last longer. Stanchion Barriers and ropes come in a variety of finishes and styles.

4) At this point, you may decide you need signage. You can choose between paper sign holders or sign frames. There are many different styles that fit right on top of the stanchions or you can use a separate sign holder to direct traffic.
