Crowd control retractable belt barriers, available from Barrier Security Products , create solutions to the global problem of crowd control barriers, which have braided ropes and  heavy, cumbersome bases. These barriers not only create issues surrounding safety and liability, but are also inconvenient for the public who use them. For the queuing public they are seen to be an inconvenience due to their large intrusive bases catching on suit cases or trolleys and providing a tripping hazard. While for those responsible for the placement and maintenance of them, they are heavy (often weighing up to 15kgs each), awkward to handle, bulky to store and transport, difficult to clean and maintain and require constant adjustment to keep them in their correct position.

Barrier Security products have eliminated all the safety, liability and logistical issues associated with conventional post and base belt barrier units by replacing the bulky free-standing base with a unique stainless steel in-ground sleeve and coupling arrangement. The elimination of bases gives an immediate increase in usable floor space of up to 30%. While the posts have an in-built impact absorbing feature which allows them to tilt by up to 10 degrees and return to their original position without incurring damage. The result is a very high quality stainless steel queue management system that locks into the floor, and offers the following key features:

  • Crowd control retractable belt barriers are tamper resistant but can be easily removed or relocated as required
  • These belt barriers have a foot print of only 65mm in diameter and weigh a light 3.2kgs
  • The retractable belt barriers feature a stainless steel in-ground sleeve and coupling arrangement
Rick Hall, Managing Director and Head of Product Development for Barrier Security Products comments. “In light of recent events at Sydney Airport, where a man was beaten to death with a portable crowd control barrier in a violent brawl. And after other bashing incidents in a number of Melbourne night clubs, where similar barriers were used as weapons and projectiles, we decided that while we can’t control the violence, we could come up with a solution to minimise the improper use of these products in the interests of public safety and venue liability. We are recognised within our industry as being innovators and problem solvers, and I think what we have developed here is a quantum leap forward in crowd control measures that has global applications.”
