Anatomy of a Traditional Post & Rope StanchionWhen people encounter post and rope stanchions at a venue, it often doesn’t cross their mind that they’re essentially being barred from an area or being told where to stand and wait. Post and rope stanchions are subtle and tasteful crowd control barriers that get the job done without drawing more attention to their presence than necessary. Instantly recognizable for their classic styling, post and rope stanchions exude elegance (and resist dents and scratches thanks to a titanium cover plate). With solid brass and stainless steel posts that are hand-polished for a handsome finish and contemporary appearance, these posts guide the public through their presence as well as the ability to house radius corner sign frames for further wayfinding instruction. Dignified post and rope stanchions set the tone for a hotel ballroom, opera house, movie theater, car dealership, red carpet event, or special line at the local mall. The velour or vinyl swag ropes are rich in color and create a pleasant draped boundary. A large variety of post finishes and base styles means the stanchions can be selected to complement any existing décor. And a unique rubber bottom means floors will remain protected and dry. While appearance is a great deal of the appeal of post and rope stanchions, the serious crowd control benefits make these barriers a popular choice for any number of enterprises or occasions. Besides the incredible durability and superior construction, there are multiple inconspicuous advantages that complete the bigger picture: a universal ring that accepts swag ropes from any direction; a cast steel base for remarkable stability; and a steel inner sleeve along the length of the entire post that adds to the strength of the stanchion.
