Tensabarriers® are equipped with a number of safety features that make them the safest retractable barriers you can buy.
Firstly, they have been designed using the highest quality, durable materials by experts with decades of experience in the market. The post material is typically 1.5mm is thicker than most barrier products in the market which are usually 1.1mm making them more durable, hardwearing and less prone to damage.
Secondly, the retractable barriers have a patented braking system that incorporates twin brake shoes to ensure that the webbing belt falls to the floor when released, before slowly retracting back into the stanchion - rather than pinging quickly back into the cartridge in a manner that could cause injury. Tensabarriers retract 2.5 seconds more slowly than other retractable barriers.
Thirdly, all the belt cassettes have an anti-tamper tape end. This prevents the webbing belt from detaching accidentally from the post when pulled out and connected.
Finally, the Tensabarrier® universal base has been designed with a lower profile, meaning it’s easier for wheelchair users or prams to roll over without causing accidents - and it’s less likely to trip those with visual impairments.
