Crowd Control Stanchions Design

The first step in a crowd control stanchion system is knowing that you need a crowd control system.

The next task is determining how many stanchions you need, how they need to be laid out and where to place signage that you need.

There are other things to think about to be sure. For example, you need to think about the colors of the stanchions and the style you wish to use. It could be a preference or it could be what matches the space where you need crowd control. Black stanchions look very professional but brass posts will give your space that upscale look.

Finally, you need to determine a configuration that will work best for your situation. Here are a few common stanchion designs.

Crowd Control Stanchions: U-Shape

This is a simple layout that creates a weave that guides people to their destination. This is an ideal setup for airports, retail stores and ticket offices.

Crowd Control Stanchions: L-Shape

If you don’t have enough floor space for a U-shaped layout, try the L-shaped layout. This is another simple design that works rather well in small areas. If you want to save space, this is the perfect layout.

Crowd Control Stanchions: U-Shape with Express Lane

This is a layout you want to use if you have customers with VIP status or if you have customers who already have tickets to an event. This is an ideal setup for a movie theater or concert in which people who bought tickets in advance can go right in while the longer line is for those who still need to buy a ticket.

Don’t Forget the Signs

The big difference between a line that runs smoothly and one that doesn’t is the signage. Signs give a clear message to customers telling them where to go, what to do and answers questions they might have. A great setup is more than just posts and rope.
