Wall-mounted belt barriers are widely used to quickly seal off areas to pedestrians when necessary. The Wallmaster Belt Barrier is a versatile, high-effective belt option for indoor spaces. The belt-ends will be equipped with the universal end as standard. However, there are other belt-end options including a magnetic end that can attach to steel or s-clips that can allow the belt to wrap around posts or columns and be connected directly to the belt. The mounting and belt-end options for this retractable barrier make it extremely versatile and highly suited to demanding environments like warehouses, factory floors and business premises.
- Easily transported - belt barriers can be put together or easily removed. This means they are easily moved from one location to another or stored away when not required.
- Effective entry denial - belt barriers are highly noticeable and will be easily seen by pedestrians. The posts and belts can easily deter access into an area or create a simple queue system for a business setting.
- Cover more distance - belt posts will allow you to easily cover larger distances, creating simple setups spanning a wider space. This is much more effective than railings or single barrier systems.
- Cost-effective - belt barriers can help you cover a larger distance at a lower cost. With just a few posts, you can create long-lasting belt setups compared to expensive steel railings.
- Versatile designs - belt barriers are available in many shapes and designs, from wall to floor mounting options. Mounting and belt end options mean the barriers can be tailored for specific projects. Use in museums, schools, warehouses, shop floors and more.
- Fully customisable - belts can be tailored to your specific design in mind. Create custom belts that include your specified wording, logos or messages.
- Wall-mounted - wall-mounted belt barriers are versatile barrier options for indoor spaces. They are suited to areas with walls, pillars or racking where they can connect easily to other units or connecting points. Mounting units to the wall can save ground space and reduce trip hazards. Wall-mounted belts are popular in warehouses, hospitals, and factory floors, where they can instantly deny access to an area. Magnetic ends can be attached directly to pallet racking or warehouse steel frames.
- Free-standing - free-standing belt stanchions are the most popular form of belt posts. The free-standing design allows them to cover large distances easily, which is ideal for creating indoor and outdoor queue systems. The posts can attach to other posts with ease. They can also be designed in stainless steel, brass, and matte to suit professional environments. Belts can also be customised to include specific colours, logos or messages. Belt stanchions are widely used in retail, airports, schools, hotels, museums, and theatres.
Retractable barriers are perfect in areas that need to change access requirements regularly. They will generally require little to no maintenance, however, there are a number of precautions that can be taken to ensure safe and lasting use of the barriers -
- Do not let go of the belt on retracting - while the barriers do include a brake system it is not advised to let the belt go back into the unit by itself. Belts should be guided back into the unit carefully by hand - this will reduce the risk of breaking or knotted belts.
- Place barriers in highly visible areas - while belts are highly visible to human eyes they are not always placed in the best locations. Be sure to use them where they can give plenty of notice to pedestrians
- Check belt posts regularly - all belt posts should be checked frequently. If posts are not in use they should be disassembled and stored away safely
Custom belts are available with the Queue Solutions range. Specific messages or logos can be added to the belts to suit your needs.
