Social distancing posts & ropes for luxury outlets

June 15, 2020

Social distancing posts & ropes for luxury outlets

Today sees the re-opening of many retail stores in the UK after 3 months of lockdown.  Of course, many supermarkets and 'essential' shops have remained open during lockdown but now many people now see this re-opening of non-essential shops as a big step forwards towards normality again.  It will certainly be interesting to gauge the public's perception of shopping in the new normal, with social distancing essential in store and outside for effective queue management.

Naturally, equipment for social distancing management has seen a huge increase in demand as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic whether this is for portable handwashing stations for schools, hand sanitiser dispensers for workplaces and Tensabarriers for shops.  Everyone surely now realises and understands the importance of both social distancing and hand cleaning and sanitising.

Tensabarrier hire for shops is popular 

Many shops have been using Tensabarrier hire to manage their external queues, especially larger stores in city centres.  Primark stores, for instance, in London and Birmingham saw shoppers queuing 2 hours in advance of store openings this morning.  Places such as these have to ensure that they are providing adequate queuing systems and markers as part of their social responsibility, and Tensabarriers are a great way to create portable queuing systems.  

These retractable stretch barriers are the same ones that you might find in an airport for instance to manage queues for the check-in desks.  They are freestanding and have a 2 metres retractable webbing inside the head which then clips onto an adjacent Tensabarrier so you can create temporary barriers to help guide your visitors or shoppers so they can wait in line in an orderly fashion.

Chome post and rope hire for luxury shopping outlets

Some luxury stores such as Harrods and Selfridges, for instance, are looking to use posts and ropes for their queue management.  These ropes and posts provide a different way of achieving the same objective and are available to hire online right here at Event Hire UK.  Typically, the freestanding posts have a polished chrome finish, though we also now offer polished gold posts for that super-luxurious finish.  These chrome posts and gold posts are available to hire in large quantities here at Event Hire UK together with three different colours of velvet ropes.  

You can choose from red, blue or black, depending upon your specific requirements.  Think of a VIP event where you have red carpet and red ropes and posts - these create a warm, engaging and welcoming area for your guests and so why not now use these poles and ropes as social distancing queue management barriers!
