What is a retractable barrier?
A retractable barrier is exactly what it sounds like – they come in many different forms and models but for most part a retractable barrier utilises a pull-out style belt that can attach itself to another belt unit, wall etc. to quickly close off an area to pedestrians. These barriers are ideal for areas where plenty of pedestrians will be passing through, perfect for banks, schools, public buildings, theatres or museums in order to keep pedestrians separated where necessary.
Using a retractable barrier system is a superb method of creating queue systems, cordoning off out of bounds type areas, deterring entry into private areas and many more. Belt barriers not only make the jobs of cleaning crews, maintenance crews, teaching staff etc. a lot easier – they also make the surrounding area much safer. A popular retractable barrier option is the WallMaster Belt Barrier. These retractable units can be mounted directly to the wall and can close off an interior environment in seconds, allowing you to separate customers in queues or block access to pedestrians. Available with various belt type these barriers can display custom messages and text to nearby pedestrians to warn them of nearby maintenance or cleaning in progress, as an example.
