Maintain order and enhance safety with crowd control signs, barriers and stanchions
Event organizers are usually pleased to welcome large numbers of people, but not the confusion, disorder and potential for injury that can result when crowds get out of hand. Attendees, too, appreciate an event, performance or other occasions when organization and safety are assured. Rely on Signs By Tomorrow for a great selection of crowd control barriers, traffic barricades, rope barriers and other solutions.
Use them at professional events, conferences or grand openings. Or, put retractable barriers and other products to work for you at arenas, banks, concert halls, movie theaters, and other establishments where you’re likely to attract crowds or otherwise need to maintain order.
Choose from many types of crowd control signs and barriers
Signs By Tomorrow offers crowd control solutions for any application and budget. Select from styles including:
Stanchions and rope: A classic crowd-control solution, stanchion-and-rope barriers bring refinement to any business, performance or special event. Stanchion posts are available with different styles of tops and weighted bases for secure and stable deployment. Rope barriers are offered in plush velour or weather-resistant polypropylene. They can either be fixed or removable and come in a variety of colors.
Post-mounted retractable barriers: Establish customer queues and pedestrian traffic flow lines with post-mounted retractable belt barriers. A compact solution when not in use, the retractable belts spool into the posts between performances.
Wall-mounted retractable belt barriers: These wall-mounted solutions are ideal for applications where typical retractable barriers or stanchion-and-rope barriers may be too unwieldy for the application.
Post panels: Instead of stretching a rope or belt between two posts, our post panels frame a space with a solid panel. The frames can be used with tinted or frosted acrylic. Alternatively, you can specify two sheets of clear acrylic into which you can insert advertising posters or decorative graphics.
Standard post-top sign frames: These crowd-control solutions accept sturdy, cardboard-weight sign material. Alternately, they feature two sheets of clear acrylic into which you insert your paper signs. The sign frames have a top opening so your graphics simply slide in and slide out, making updating easy. Our sign frames fit rope stanchions or the posts for belt barriers.
Heavy-duty stanchion sign frames: A great choice for high-traffic areas, our heavy-duty post-top sign frames are fabricated with a wide steel border. Some frames feature two sheets of clear acrylic with a top opening that makes sign replacement easy; other styles accept signs in heavier-weight paper and dispense with the need for supportive acrylic sheets.
Paper sign holders: These post-top solutions accept standard-size copier paper you can print on an office printer. You slide your message or graphics between two sheets of acrylic, which protects the paper and makes for a professional-looking presentation.
Bracket signs: Another option to fit atop a stanchion or retractable post, bracket signs are made of a frameless sheet of acrylic fixed in a bracket. We’ll custom print your message on the acrylic. Or, select from a range of standard messages such as “Enter Here.” Either way, your signage can be swapped out easily from event to event.
Stanchion-mounted literature holders: Like to distribute programs or flyers as visitors or guests wait in line? Our literature holders let you do so easily!

Questions & Answers
What types of ropes are available for rope-and-stanchion solutions?
Our ropes are constructed of heavy-duty cotton, weather-resistant polypropylene or other tightly woven braids. As for rope covers, you’ll choose from Naugahyde or plush velour in a variety of popular colors. The ropes attach to posts with hook ends or snaps, in a selection of attractive finishes.
What are my crowd control product customization options?
You’ll enjoy many ways to individualize our crowd control products. Belts, for example, can come in any number of solid colors or with standard messages such as "Please Wait Here" or "Out of Service." We can also custom print your belts with your company logo and messages. When waiting in line, people can’t miss them. Other choices include custom post-top labels and one-of-a-kind post wraps.

Our team has worked with SBT for everything from business signage to vehicle wraps. They are very communicative, patient, and well-versed in what materials are best for our needs and vision. At one point recently we had 3 different projects in with SBT and could not have been more satisfied with the process and results. Their rates are competitive, their turn-around above expectations, their customer service superior to similar vendors in the Port City... We've checked!
