The Freestanding Stanchion discreetly protects artwork without clashing with the display or decor.

Stanchion Design

The Freestanding Stanchion is designed to complement an exhibition and gallery environment, and discreetly remind visitors not to touch. The stable steel base and upright supports an elasticated cord that defines restricted access, and gently gives to the touch, thus avoiding tripping or injury. Slip-resistant, neoprene pads improve grip and protect floor surfaces.

Key Features of the Freestanding Stanchion

  • Neutral, clean lines that blend with the environment
  • Stable base with non-skid/scratch pads
  • Elasticated cord that gently tugs without tripping
  • Choice of heights: 16" or 39"
  • Ease of assembly
  • Modular components to accommodate informative signage and tie-back to wall

Unique Stanchion Design

When surrounding an exhibit our Freestanding Stanchion has a neutral finish and clean lines which sit comfortably within any museum and gallery environment. An Elasticated Cord connects the stanchions and blends with the architecture of the building, ensuring that the artwork is the object of attention and not the stanchion. If choosing to define the protected space more sharply, the elasticated cord is available in red, white and black, which highlights the boundary of the exhibit. Our Freestanding Stanchions have modular accessories such as Wall Terminators that allow clean tie-backs direct to the wall, and Signage Adaptors that when used with our Label Holders, transform the Stanchion into an informative area.

Dimensions and Finish

Freestanding Stanchions are available in mild steel with a Powder Coated or Stainless Steel finish. They come in two sizes: 16" high with a 9¼" diameter base or 39½" high with a 13¼" diameter base. All of the uprights are ¾" in diameter.
The finish on our coloured stanchions uses a powder that is baked onto the surface to give a long life, and even the base weight is stainless steel, no cheap and nasty castings here....even the bolt is stainless steel.

Useful Tips and Guidelines

Our Freestanding Stanchions are entirely constructed in the UK using high quality materials and the latest manufacturing techniques to provide a product that will stand the test of time in even the most demanding environments.

It is important to select a stanchion finish that blends well with the environment and minimises visual impact, and to assist this process, our standard cord colour is grey. However, in areas where it is important to draw attention to the line, we can supply cord in a range of colours that will enhance the contrast. These are white, red, black or yellow.

If the floor is highly polished, the stanchions will need to be closer together (5') than a floor that has plenty of grip, in which case, stanchions can be spaced further apart (6.5').

Whenever possible, stanchions should be placed in a symmetrical fashion in front of an artwork as this maintains good overall visual harmony.
