Houston Airport Mini Socket and Stanchion Installation

Houston Airport: Customs and Border Entrance Mini Socket and Stanchion Installation

Houston Airport selected our new Mini Socket Mounted Retracta-Belt stanchions for the Customs and Border Entrance or the airport. They provide a unique clean flow and keep obstructions out or the way so the suitcases and bags of your travelers can be moved easily through the queue.

These mini-socket stanchions install easily to keep queue lines in place, and remove easily for floor maintenance and layout changes. The installation could not be simpler.

"The installation of the mini socket system produced a very clean appearance for our client with an easy and straightforward installation," says Garrett Jurica, the Project Manager at KBR who installed the posts. "The provided instructions made the procedures for installation clear to all personnel used on the project and assisted greatly in getting all the needed equipment to site. Our project required the system to be installed into a terrazzo floor finish, this was accomplished by utilizing the epoxy anchor system with the supplied lock-in mechanical feature for each anchor. We also supplied our clients with the optional anchor cap for future use if the areas queuing requirements change, with the cap installed the anchor virtually disappears into the finishes of the surrounding areas."

Mini Socket Stanchions At Jetblue Terminal At JFK

Have you had a chance to see the new stanchion setup JetBlue unveiled at T5i, their new international arrivals facility in JFK Airport, in November 2014. This state of the art $200 million project features a customs and border patrol area designed to process up to 1,400 travelers per hour. To outfit their queue lines, JetBlue selected our Mini Socket Mounted Retracta-Belt Stanchions, Mini Socket Mounted Post-N-Panel Systems, and Wall Mount Retracta-Belt heads. Our exclusive and unique products provide a functional, attractive, and flexible queuing solution to accommodate arriving passengers.

These Mini Socket Mounted Retracta-Belt Stanchions and Post-N-Panels are ideal for airports because they feature a 'no-base' design, which tightens up the queue line space, eliminates the tripping hazard from standard bases, and provides a clean-looking appearance. The permanent socket ensures that queues are set up in the same place and layout each time, and prevents the stanchions from shifting or 'walking' throughout the day.

Mini Socket posts remove from their sockets in less than 30 seconds for easy floor maintenance or queue reconfiguration. The 3/4" diameter socket installs in less than 10 minutes, saving on installation labor costs compared to traditional removable sockets.
