Steadfast® Essential Barrier

Redrawing The Line

Absolute have developed the new Steadfast Essential Barrier, the most cost effective straightforward barrier system available. Featuring a new patent-pending design that is simple to use, requires no tools or knots and can be installed or adjusted in minutes.

This barrier is the same height and uses the same elasticated cord as our popular Freestanding Barrier and the new Steadfast Supreme Barrier, but the cord is now included in the price of this barrier. The Steadfast Essential Barrier is produced using the most recent laser manufacturing techniques to provide a reliable and easy to use solution for protecting artworks and displays.

It’s finished in dove grey that will blend comfortably in a wide variety of settings. Featuring non-slip pads that will ensure it stays put and doesn't leave a mark on even the most delicate of floors.

Neutral Finish

When surrounding an exhibit, the neutral finish and clean lines sit comfortably within the museum and gallery environment. An elasticated cord connects the barriers and draws a straight line in the air, blending with the architecture of the building and ensuring that the artwork is the object of attention. Our Essential Barrier has modular accessories such as Wall Terminators that allow clean tie-backs directly to the wall and Signage Adaptors combined with our Label Holders to transform the barriers into an informative display.

Dimensions and Finish

Our Steadfast Essential Barrier is finished in Dove Grey, It has a total height of 400mm with a 230mm diameter base and a 20mm wide upright.

Useful Tips and Guidelines

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

We recommend the spacing between the barriers to be 1.5m to 1.8m. This will help the barriers to blend discreetly with the environment and not overcrowd the display.

For the best finish, it is important to ensure that the cord maintains a level straight line between barriers.
