The stable steel base and upright supports an elasticated cord that defines restricted access but gives to the touch without tripping or injury. This barrier features our injection moulded top that helps prevent 'little fingers' from removing the cap. The base is hollow in the centre to provide weight only where it is required and is cushioned with slip resistant neoprene pads to improve grip and protect polished floor surfaces.

Gotta be the most fun way to campaign! (Not to mention the cutest.)👗💁🏻 Our five #wcw ladies are donning paper dresses with photos of presidential candidates from the 1968 election. From left to right, that's Hubert Humphrey, Eugene McCarthy, Nelson Rockefeller, Ronald Reagan, and Richard Nixon. Our new exhibition, "Campaigning for the Presidency, 1960-1972: Selections from the @museumofdemocracy/Wright Family Collection" opens next week on August 26! . . 📸 Five girls pose in dresses with photos of presidential candidates (left to right: Humphrey, McCarthy, Rockefeller, Reagan, and Nixon), 1968.

This is our most robust track. With the correct installation it will carry loads of half a ton. At the same time, it is also our most discreet track, with a narrow slot of just 8 mm visible when the track is installed. The Flush Mounted Track has been designed for installation during the construction phase, and will blend seamlessly with the building structure to provide a readily accessible fixing, enabling artworks to be hung at any point and any height. Artworks can then be hung using a variety of materials including transparent cord, stainless cable or stainless rod. We have found this extrusion to be of particular interest to architects and designers as it is easy to install during construction and provides a flexible system with a very low visual profile.
Each cable or rod requires a top block.
*Screws not included due to different use scenarios*
This track is the strongest discreet track on the market. If you intend to hang very heavy works (in excess of 250 lbs) then we recommend drilling additional holes along the top edge.

Information is another important part of the museum experience so free standing signs and wall signs are widely used. Wall hung label holders are commonly used next to artwork to identify the artist and describe the artwork.

Museum barriers should also adhere to ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) standards. The belt or cord on a typical barrier is too high. According to the ADA, the cord or belt must be cane detectable and located within 27 inches off of the finished floor or ground.
