Stanchion

Stanchion

Usually made of stainless steel, a stanchion is a vertical bar aiming at supporting a barrier (they are also sometimes called stands). In the event industry, stanchions are associated with velvet ropes (or other colors) and are used for crowd control, whether it’s at red carpet premieres, nightclub entrances, public events or even museum exhibits.

Because these fixtures are pretty light, they can be carried, installed and removed easily for all kinds of events. Depending on how often you need them, stanchions can be rented or purchased.
