A Tensabarrier® Goes A Long Way

We are the inventor of the original retractable queuing barrier – setting the market standard for crowd control products.

Whether you want to manage your queuing space, or cordon off access to a restricted area, there will be a Tensabarrier® for your needs. Tensabarrier® allows you to enhance space, while reducing risks of costly accidents that could be caused within your business area.

Unlike competitor products, Tensabarrier® has an originally patented braking system that incorporates twin brake shoes. As a result, the webbing falls to the floor upon release before slowly retracting back into the stanchion. Tensabarrier® is one of the safest stanchions on the market and has been designed using the highest quality materials and extensive expertise.


Why Buy Tensabarrier® Posts?

Refined Belt Length

Other competitors offer longer belts, but this is only made possible by using thinner webbing, most commonly of lower grade, while keeping the same diameter post.

High Quality Manufacturing

Made from 0.89mm military grade fabric, the Tensabarrier® belts are thicker than other retractable stanchions, meaning it resists wear and tear for longer.

Optimised Design

The Tensabarrier® design has been refined over the decades to provide an optimum height.

Strong and Sturdy Steel

The Tensabarrier® steel post offers flexibility for colours and finish options while being stronger than typical aluminium posts.

Magnetic Technology

Patented locating mechanism for accurate concentric positioning of post to the floor plate ensures queue lines remain straight.

neodymium magnets are mechanically secured inside the base cavity with a screw fixing unlike lower-quality, glued-in solutions.

Tool-free installation as you secure the floor plate to site surfaces using a high-strength adhesive. Remove and re-locate without damaging the floor.

Bevelled edge of floor plate reduces trip hazard risk.

Safest Barrier on the Market


Safety First

Tensabarrier® is the safest retractable barrier on the market – our cassettes have the most unique braking system on the market the webbing retracts 2.5 seconds slower than its closest competitor; making it the safest solution for your customers.


Anti-Tamper Device

All cassettes have an anti-tamper tape end that prevents the webbing detaching accidentally from the post when pulled out and connected. This connects to all competitor products and is marked with the Tensator® stamp of quality, for instant brand recognition.
