Museum Display and Queue Control Barriers

Museum barriers are typically used to queue and control visitors throughout a museum or institution. Taller museum stanchions are usually used for directing foot traffic in a particular path or direction. Shorter art stanchions can be used for surrounding items such as works of art to keep visitors from touching or getting too close. There are a number of barrier options that can be used, such as belts or ropes, but most museums prefer the more refined sophisticated approach of a straight cord. This gives a nice clean look that does not distract from the object being viewed.

Americans with Disabilities Act

Museum barriers should also adhere to ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) standards. The belt or cord on a typical museum barrier is too high. According to the ADA, the cord or belt must be cane detectable and located within 27 inches off of the finished floor or ground. The Q-Cord Museum Barrier already meets these ADA requirements. These items and other barrier related items are sold by  Art Display Essentials and can be purchased on their website here:
