Q-Cord Retractable Barriers in Hong Kong Cultural Center


The Q-cord retractable stanchion system is the new definition of convenient architectural crowd control.
The Q-cord is a retractable barrier that comes with 7 feet of cord. It has a beautiful brushed stainless steel exterior and made with marine grade components. It is easy to set up and rearrange and is mountable in wall, on wall, in floor, on floor, or freestanding. It is made in the USA and is designed to exceed ADA requirements.
Signage is available in three sizes and must be used with a signage cap which comes in 60 degrees or vertical. 



Museum barriers are typically used to queue and control visitors throughout a museum or institution. Taller barriers are usually used for directing foot traffic in a particular path or direction. Shorter barriers can be used for surrounding items such as works of art to keep visitors from touching or getting too close. There are a number of barrier options that can be used, such as belts or ropes, but most museums prefer the more refined sophisticated approach of a straight cord. This gives a nice clean look that does not distract from the object being viewed. 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.
The new Q-Cord Retractable Barrier is made by 10-31 Inc., which is one meter(39.375") high and has two retractable cords. The lower cord is half a meter(19.75”) off of the ground to be ADA compliant.

Below is the info from the ADA website: 
From 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design2
307 Protruding Objects
307.1 General. Protruding objects shall comply with 307.
307.2 Protrusion Limits. Objects with leading edges more than 27 inches (685 mm) and not more than 80 inches (2030 mm) above the finish floor or ground shall protrude 4 inches (100 mm) maximum horizontally into the circulation path.
EXCEPTION: Handrails shall be permitted to protrude 4 1/2 inches (115 mm) maximum.
Advisory 307.2 Protrusion Limits. When a cane is used and the element is in the detectable range, it gives a person sufficient time to detect the element with the cane before there is body contact. Elements located on circulation paths, including operable elements, must comply with requirements for protruding objects. For example, awnings and their supporting structures cannot reduce the minimum required vertical clearance. Similarly, casement windows, when open, cannot encroach more than 4 inches (100 mm) into circulation paths above 27 inches (685 mm).

Floor Mounted Barriers

This barrier is intended for environments where the installation may be of a more permanent nature and has the advantage of not requiring a large steel base for support.


The Absolute floor mounted 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’s neutral finish and simple clean lines sit comfortably within the museum and gallery environment, gently reminding the public of it’s presence without clashing with the display or decor.
The clever bit is a stretchy cord, that fits snugly into the top of each post, drawing a neat line in the air, avoiding the distraction of that dreadful droopy rope, and 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 timber floor mounted version of our barrier system has an upright that fits snugly into a stainless steel floor socket and supports the elasticated cord which defines restricted access, but gives to the touch thus avoiding tripping or injury. This socket has a small flange at the top that allows it to be screwed to the floor.
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 60mm diameter.



The floor-mounted version for stone or concrete floors 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.







We recommend a maximum of 10 feet
or 3 meters between these barriers.

African Mask Stands

African Mask Display Stands



African ritual and ceremonial masks are usually made of wood and have holes along the sides where string or cord was used to hold the African mask in place. These holes can be used to mount the African mask on a display stand or hang on a wall. You could simply run a string or wire through the holes of the African mask to hang it, or mount it on a display base with an armature. The metal wire follows the inside perimeter so it cannot be seen through the openings in the mask such as the eyes and mouth. The wire goes into a hole on each side of the African mask to hold it in place. It looks better to bend the post where it comes to the bottom of the African mask back and away from the mask, then down to the base. This will add dimension and keeps the post back from the mask. The display base is commonly made of metal or other materials can be used such as acrylic or wood. Custom mounting for African masks can range from $80 to $400 depending on quality of the display mount and size of the mask. Our custom division, 10-31 Inc., has been mounting African masks for over 30 years. They carefully mount the African mask with just the right proportions and finesse giving it a very clean look.
Another alternative for making African mask displays is to do it yourself. Art Display Essentials has stock “T”-arm displays that can be used to make an African mask stand. They come as a basic “T” shape that you can bend the arms down and place into the side holes. The height of the post could be adjusted although you would need a hack saw or bolt cutters to cut through the ¼” steel. You can see these “T”-arm African and tribal mask stands here:
http://www.artdisplay.com/mask-stand.html

Back of Tribal Mask

T-arm African mask display stand with more intricate bending of the upright post around mouth so it is not seen from the front.
This is a simpler approach for a tribal mask stand, but you will see the upright post in the mouth from the front.

Some African masks cover both head and face or full headdress. These may be easier to mount by using a base with a post and a fitting on top. The fitting is sometimes custom shaped to correctly fit the African head piece. There are also stock bases for this situation as well at  Art Display Essentials. These stock items can also be used for helmets, hats and other items of that nature. They can be seen here: http://www.artdisplay.com/helmet-hat-stands.html

Other masks, including masks that are not African, may be made of metal like copper or bronze; or stone such as jade or steatite. The stock stands may or may not work with these depending on size and weight. However, a custom mount can be made by 10-31 Inc.

How to hang African masks on wall

The same bending approach used for the African mask display shown above can be used to hang an African mask on the wall. The "T" are available without the base, so instead of the post going down to a base it could go to a metal plate. If you used a metal plate with screw holes like pictured above you would have to solder or weld the post to the plate. You could also use a wooden wall plate that you could drill a hole in on a downward angle for the post to tightly fit into.

African Mask

African masks are typically used for rituals and ceremonies and are also a popular collector’s item, also seen in galleries and museums.  Some African mask types are: Baule Mask, Biombo Mask, Bwa Mask, Dan Mask, Goma Mask, Kota Mask, Kwele Mask, Ligbi Mask, Lulua Mask, Lwalwa Mask, Pende Mask, Punu Mask, Senufo Mask, Teke Mask, Woyo Mask, Yohure Mask.

The stock T-arms can also be used for many other Artifacts such as: usahbtis, celts, etruscans, coreform glass, bronzes, Egyptian, Roman, and Greek artifacts, faience pieces, amulets, jades, terra cotta figures, byzantine, olmec, and mezcala figures, pre columbian, mayan, aztec artifacts and so on.

T-Track


The hanging track range is ideal for environments where the works of art are changed frequently or where it is inappropriate to damage the wall surface.

T Track is our most recent track system and can be applied to existing walls or installed during the building phase for a more invisible solution. It’s designed to fix to the wall tight up against the ceiling and gives the appearance of a floating ceiling. This is a very strong track, able to support artworks up to 650 lbs with the appropriate installation.

It’s very easy to use, enabling artworks to be hung from clips inserted at any point along the track, and suspended using a choice of transparent cord, stainless steel cable or stainless steel rod.



·         Stainless Steel Rods provides the most rigid installation, can be supplied in silver or white and will support artworks up to 110 lbs (50 kg) per pair.
·         Stainless Steel Cable will provide the strongest flexible cable system and will support artworks up to 77 lbs (35 kg) per pair.
·         Perlon Cord is semi-transparent and blends with most surfaces and is the best choice for a discreet installation. Will support artworks up to 55 lbs (25kg) per pair.
·         *Each cable or rod requires a top block.*
·         *Screws not included due to different use scenarios*

All of these systems are compatible with the Ryman hanger range for a higher level of security.


Useful Tips and Guidelines:
For the most discreet finish we recommend that the T Track is installed before any wall coverings are fixed. This means screwing the track into place tight up against the ceiling and then fitting the drywall snug to the underside of the track.
Alternatively the track can be surface mounted to an existing wall tight up against the ceiling.
Installation Instructions:
Hold the first section of track in place tight against the ceiling and mark the screw holes. Drill and fix the first section of track in place with the screw holes running along the top. Then repeat this process for the second section after inserting one of the pins (supplied) into the small circular hole at the end of the track and engaging with the next section. This will ensure that the tracks all align beautifully.
Repeat this process until you reach the last section and trim to the correct length.
Hanging Your Artworks:
With Perlon cord, feed the cord through the top block and ‘hook’ it into the track.
With stainless cable, feed the cord through the top block and ‘hook’ it into the track.
With stainless rods, hook the top block into the track and screw the rods into place from beneath.
Slide the appropriate barrel up the cord or rod from the bottom and tighten at the required height with the bolt heads facing toward you. It’s much easier to do this with the two lengths side by side so that the barrel heights match.
For artworks with cord on the back, just place the cord over the hook. If you are using the Small Ryman Hanger, hook it over the small bolt and discard the large one and vice versa for the Large Ryman Hanger. For maximum strength be sure to tighten both the bolt (using a screwdriver) and the grub screw (using an allen key).
With the rods at the correct distance apart, the artwork is lifted into place so that the protruding boltheads engage with the the Ryman plate on the back of the artwork.
