3 Uses for Belt Barriers

Lightweight barriers are used for a huge array of situations, from queues at nightclubs to cordoning off indoor areas.

What makes these so popular is their versatility, easy to move around and simple to add or remove belts.

We have a look at the three most popular uses:

Queues and crowd control

The main purpose of the belt barriers! Queue control, used primarily in banks, airports and walk in centres the belt barriers offer a cost effective solution to managing queues, light enough to move and sturdy enough not to easily be toppled over. The belts available come in blue or black and are sure to seamlessly blend in with your premises.

Cordoning off areas

Another great use for belt barriers is to cordon off areas, either a permanent exhibit, work being done or maybe at an event to stop people touching cars or equipment on display. The belts are 2.5m long giving you room to play with when setting up the barriers.


You can convert your barriers into a handy sign. This is ideal for retail and small businesses that have an offer on, wait time of queue or perhaps just want to let visitors know where to go? This is best used with our freestanding belt barrier posts and features an A4 sized acrylic see through front with powder coated black frame finish. Personalised signs from your printer can easily be slotted into the frame.
