Retractable event barriers hire for queue management

January 12, 2016

Large events invariably means large amounts of people and guests, and so many event organisers not only have to hire equipment for inside their venue, but also need to hire queue management barriers for the entrance area or foyer of their event venue to ensure that these people are guided and management correctly, safely and efficiently.

There are several ways to achieve this, from VIP ropes and posts through to metal barriers.  However, here we are going to focus on retractable tensabarriers which are portable, free standing and an efficient and effective method of guiding large amounts of people at events.

With circular bases on which a metre high pole stands, stretch barriers are free standing, with a 2 metre length of retractable webbing sitting coiled inside each barrier.  This allows you to pull out the webbing and, with the attachment that is on the end of this webbing, securely fasten it in place to make a single line of Tensabarriers.

Retractable Event Barriers Hire

You often find these retractable queue management barriers at venues such as airports and in the foyers of exhibition halls, for instance, where they are expecting a large amount of people to arrive in a relatively short space of time, which also therefore makes them ideal for large hospitality events and so on.

 If you need to hire a line management system, then you need to work out how long you want your length of barriers to be – it’s probably easiest to do this in metres, as you know that each Tensabarrier will be able to stretch across a two metre length – this will then determine how many Tensabarriers you need to hire for your event.

Retractable barriers are available in great quantities from leading event equipment hire company Event Hire UK – we can offer these in two varieties: chrome posts with blue retractable webbing, and black posts with black retractable webbing, both of which are available at the same price.

So, if you need crowd control barriers of the temporary retractable variety, then don’t hesitate to get in contact with us – you’ll find a slick, efficient and friendly service awaits.
