As the inventor of the world-famous Tensabarrier, Tensator has set the market standard and we don’t think our customers should accept anything less. Tensabarrier is one of the safest barriers on the market; and unlike competitor products, it has a braking system that slows the retraction of the webbing, significantly reducing the risk of an accident.

Invented in the 1970s and still selling one barrier every 34 seconds, we are very confident that the Tensabarrier remains the industry-leading product. The biggest brands and companies trust Tensabarrier to maintain a level of quality and organisation for their operations. You can find Tensabarrier in the largest airports, retail stores and sporting venues, helping improve the customer journey.
