Why Buy A Tensabarrier® Retractable Barrier?


Did you know? We invented the first retractable queueing barrier, which became the gold standard for crowd-control products. Whether you’re managing a queue or need to cordon off a restricted area, we’ll have something that fits the bill.

We offer the market’s safest queue barrier, with a retractable seatbelt based on the car version that’s the only cassette of its kind designed to automotive reliability standards. An anti-tamper tape end comes as standard, plus our webbing is thicker than what the competition offers.

Tensabarrier® queue barriers are all fully customisable, from fixing options to webbing lengths and design, tape ends and more. Wall mounted barriers come in a range of colours and finishes. Take your pick from a number of safety messages, from No Entry to Cleaning in Progress. Find out more from us today.

Stanchion Height

Designed at an optimum height & deliberately shorter than competitor products to prevent people going over or under it.

Post Thickness

Steel post is 1.5mm thicker than competitor products making it harder wearing. Available in a variety of colours and finishes – something that is limited when buying aluminium posts from competitors.

Webbing Thickness

Made from 0.89 military-grade fabric – meaning they are significantly thicker than other retractable barriers. Less likely to degrade over time and the thread will not unravel if cut. Digital dye printed webbing allows for a higher quality print, ideal for branding opportunities.


We make the safest, most durable queue barrier you’ll find anywhere on the market. Our belt is based on the standard car seatbelt, with the only cassette of its type designed to the reliability standards of the automotive industry.
