Crowd control barrier | Elite Store Fixture

In response to the current global pandemic, public health authorities have had to adapt by implementing a number of safety measures. Among such measures, we note social distancing and banning the sale of certain products that are considered non-essential. While these actions are certainly very useful, facility managers and retailers may find it difficult to implement and enforce them. This is where access to the right equipment can make all the difference. Our crowd control barrier is part of that indispensable set of tools.

Our crowd control barrier

If a business is looking to equip itself with the best tools to curb the spread of COVID-19 and comply with health and safety measures, it shouldn’t neglect the crowd divider. While it can often go unnoticed, the line control barrier is a tool that can prove just how useful it is, over and over. Though it isn’t foreign to us in normal times, this piece of equipment becomes even more crucial in the context of a pandemic.


At Elite Store Fixture, we only offer one type of crowd divider. Seeing as it is highly versatile, it can be easily adapted to any needs you may have. First, this barrier’s dimensions allow it to be used in a variety of situations. Being 36-inch high, it serves as an excellent obstacle. Meanwhile, its 12-inch square base ensures that it remains stable.


Moreover, our line control barrier is made of high-quality steel. This makes it particularly resistant to bad weather, as well as accidental damage and vandalism. Its black finish has been baked on, which limits peeling.


In addition, its 4 hooks allow you to use it in a 360-degree radius. This post is therefore especially helpful for creating obstacles and barriers. It can be used both indoors and outdoors. However, it will last you longer when used indoors and not exposed to various weather conditions. Our crowd divider can be used with our social control banner. The latter hooks onto the two poles, thus creating a physical barrier. The 52” long banner is made of sturdy fabric. For orders of a sufficient quantity, the banner can be personalized per client request, for example with the logo of the business, store or facility.


Customers who are interested in our line control barrier have several purchasing options they can choose from. First, it is possible to purchase the crowd divider with the matching banner. Secondly, we also offer the post or banner individually. Finally, our customers can choose a set of two posts and a security banner.

Typical applications of a crowd control barrier

In the context of the coronavirus pandemic, the crowd divider and line control banner prove useful in many ways. For starters, if hygiene measures require it, they can be used to ban the sale of certain non-essential products. In order to do this, all the retailer needs to do is simply place two barrier posts connected to a banner in front of the stall that features the banned products. In a similar fashion, it is also possible to use one or more barrier posts to block access to an entire area of the store.


Of course, barrier posts can be used for crowd control in two ways. On one hand, they can help direct the flow of visitors within the premises of a business. For instance, we can block certain paths or shortcuts to guide shoppers to go in a certain direction. Thanks to this strategy, we are able to reduce the potential contacts between different users of the establishment and thus limit the risk of contamination. On the other hand, the crowd divider can also be used to enforce queues that respect social distancing. This is what makes it a versatile and indispensable tool for ensuring the respect of social distancing within a business or an establishment.
