Barriers for Permanent Displays

The Absolute Floor Socket Barrier system is ideally suited to a more permanent display and has the added benefit of appearing more discreet than the Freestanding version whilst still indicating that visitors should not touch the exhibits. It is designed for use with stone, marble and concrete floors. The socket can also be used on timber flooring (please speak to one of our Team if you require this option). The neutral finish and simple clean lines sit comfortably within the museum, gallery and display environment, gently reminding the public of its presence without clashing with the display or decor.

Key Features of the Floor Socket Barrier

  • Ultra discreet protection for artworks
  • Suitable for timber, stone, marble and concrete floors
  • Neutral, clean lines that blend with the environment
  • Elasticated cord that gently tugs without tripping
  • Modular components to accommodate informative signage and tie-back to wall
  • Suits more permanent displays but features easy removal and minimum impact

Discreet Floor Barriers

The clever bit is a stretchy cord that fits nicely into the top of each post, drawing a neat line in the air, avoiding the distraction of that dreadful droopy rope. Also, because the Elasticated Cord makes a straight line, it blends with the architecture of the building, helping the barriers to become less obvious and ensuring the artwork is the object of attention.

The Floor Socket version of our barrier system has an upright that fits snugly into a small stainless steel floor socket and supports the elasticated cord which defines restricted access, but gives to the touch thus avoiding tripping or injury. The socket has a lip of just 2.5mm making this a very discrete installation. As with the Freestanding Barrier, this features our injection moulded top that helps prevent ‘little fingers' from removing the cap. If required the uprights can be removed and the socket filled with a flush fitting plug that leaves a smooth, trip-free stainless circle of just 25mm.

Dimensions and Finish

Our Floor Socket Barriers are available in two hardwearing versions; stainless steel or mild steel with a powder coated finish. The barriers are 385mm high with a 25mm diameter stainless steel socket that provides a discreet fixing. The socket is 66mm deep and the upright has a diameter of 20mm.

Other sizes and finishes are available on request.

Useful Tips and Guidelines

It is important to select a barrier finish that blends well with the environment and minimises visual impact and to assist this process, our standard cord colour is a neutral 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.

Because these barriers have a rigid fixing the tension on the cord can be greater and it is possible to increase the distance between barriers up to a maximum of approximately 2.5 metres.

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