- Museum Display and Queue Barriers
- Museum barriers are typically used to queue and control visitors throughout a museum or institution. Taller barriers are usually used for directing foot traffic in a particular path or direction. Shorter barriers 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.
- Museum barriers should also adhere to ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) standards. The belt or cord on a typical 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 new Q-Cord Retractable Barrier which is one meter (39.375") high and has two retractable cords. The lower cord is half a meter (19.75”) off of the ground to be ADA compliant.
