Our museum barriers are widely used across different types and sizes of venue, from small local sites to major national institutions. They not only increase safety, but make staff and visitors feel safer, too. Additionally, they can make a huge difference to the overall visitor experience. We offer a two year warranty and free UK delivery on all products.
Efficiency and sensible queue management mean your customers will have more time to browse the museum, shop or cafeteria.
How Retractable and Rope Barriers Can Help With Museum Safety
Designed to make museums safer and more accessible, queuing barriers by Tensator® help you to make the most of your space.
Taking steps to prevent accidents means you’re able to deliver positive customer experiences and reduce workplace hazards. Our retractable barriers can reduce the risk of harm, ensure the orderly exit of customers and be easily partnered with in-queue signage that could display safety messaging – like social distancing guidelines.
At Tensator, we specialise in museumpost and rope barriersand museum stanchions. These solutions create a feeling of elegance and exclusivity, and are ideal if you’re cordoning off a VIP area, say for the opening viewing of a new display or exhibition. Choose from varied colours of velour rope, and high-quality steel stanchions, with lengths including 1m and 2.5m.
Retractable Queue Barrier Systems
Our cost-effective retractable barriers mean you can show visitors where to queue, and cordon off any areas you’re not using. So you control overcrowding and keep customers where you want them to be – making these products ideal for a museum setting.
Our queue barriers an incredibly safe way of managing crowd flow. And our unique, patented Tensabarrier® is different to other retractable museum stanchions, thanks to its unique braking system which allows the webbing to retract (or draw back into the barriers) very slowly. On release, the webbing falls to the floor before retracting safely back into the stanchion, making it the safest belt barrier around. Our barrier range can be fully customised to suit your particular needs. Our retractable barriers for museums are available in varied colours and range from 2.3m to 3.65m in length. Take a closer look at our line-up of retractable safety barriers too.

Custom printed webbing
We offer a custom printing webbing service available on all of our Tensabarrier® webbing. This means you can add a custom graphic, branding, or message to your retractable barrier. This could help you to reinforce safety messaging and help to make your queue more on-brand.
Highest quality belt The Tensabarrier belts are significantly thicker than other retractable stanchions, since they are manufactured from 0.89mm military grade fabric. This means they are less likely to deteriorate over time.
Perfect height The Tensabarrier® has been developed to make sure it is at the optimum 970mm in height and is intentionally shorter than similar products to stop people climbing over or going under it. With a lower centre of gravity, it is also more difficult to knock over and less likely to catch on bags and clothes.
