Queuing is an inevitable part of retail, so it’s best to invest in one product that can help you to manage different queue layouts and will last you. While customers generally expect a certain amount of queuing at the checkout, we understand that this experience needs to be made as positive and convenient as possible which is where our range of Tensabarriers® and Queue Accessories can help!
We know that flexibility is key when managing queues; retractable queuing barriers can be quickly configured in lots of different ways to manage the volume of customers you have in store.
Our Tensabarrier® is highly configurable to help you to match your queue barrier with the rest of your store. Whether that be a chrome finish for a stylish and contemporary look, or a bright red post for a quirky feel. You can even take it a step further with our custom printed webbing. Custom webbing enables you to add a message, graphic or branding to the webbing on your retail barrier webbing.
As well as ensuring efficiency and customer safety, our barriers work alongside impactful queue signage that enables you to feature messages promoting products and offers.
How Retractable Barriers Can Help With Retail Safety
Designed to make retail safer and more accessible, retractable queuing barriers by Tensator® help you to make the most of your retail 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.
If you need to regularly restrict access to specific parts of your store, like closing off dressing rooms, or staff only areas, then you need a wall mounted barrier. They avoid the need for having a freestanding post and simply fix it to a surface or wall. Once they are fixed, the tape end can be pulled out and secured to an adjacent wall using a wall clip, which is supplied with every wall mounted barrier.
Why Buy Tensabarrier® For Retail?
Accessible for all Retail can be overwhelming for people with mobility issues and families with pushchairs. Tensabarrier® universal stanchion base has the lowest leading edge on the market, meaning that wheelchairs and pushchairs can roll over with ease. They are also designed to reduce trip hazards for anyone without wheels, including people who use a white cane or mobility aid.
Custom printed webbing We offer a custom printing 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® stanchion 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, the stanchion is also more difficult to knock over and less likely to catch on bags and clothes.
