Cafe Barriers

Cafe barriers (also known as cafe banners) are a very effective way of creating branded outdoor seating areas for cafes and restaurants, or for creating an attractive way of marking where customers should wait for seating etc in pubs and bars. Our cafe barrier kit comes with everything you will need to set up your barriers for years to come. Choose from our variety of options and configure your café barrier system to suit your needs. A single cafe barrier kit comes with two chrome or black posts with round bases, a pair of cross rails (single rail with black posts), and a high quality fabric cafe banner printed using full-colour dye-sublimation print in fire retardant and fade resistant inks on 285gsm Tent Polyester. You can choose to have your cafe banners printed single or double sided, and all options come with free delivery and a 2 year guarantee.

How to Use Your Cafe Barriers

Our cafe barriers consist of two very sturdy posts made from stainless steel (which won’t chip, scratch or corrode) between which you place your premium quality banner. Each post is sturdy so they won’t tip over in the wind or if they get jostled. The posts have rubber bases that won’t scratch your flooring and that also means the rubber posts can be rolled away and don’t have to be lifted if they need to be moved or packed away.

The cafe barriers have a crossbeam across the top and bottom and you slide your fabric cafe banner over the crossbeams and attach it to the end posts. The banner is slightly shorter than the length of the crossbeams which allows wind to pass around the cafe barrier and improves stability. The 1 meter cafe barriers have a 950(W) x 760(H)mm banner, the 1.5 meter cafe barriers have a 1350(W) x 760(H)mm banner, and the 2 meter cafe barrier has a 1950(W) x 760(H)mm banner.

How Many Cafe Barriers Do I Need?

As single items, our cafe barriers come in three lengths: 1 meters, 1.5 meters and 2 meters. To work out how many cafe barriers you will need measure the length of each line of the barrier area. The corners of the barrier area can share the same post, but please bear in mind that the posts have bases that are 320mm in diameter so you’ll need to make sure that they aren’t in the way of tables or thoroughfares. We recommend making a diagram of the barrier space and plotting the location of each cafe barrier. If you need any help working out how many cafe barriers to order, call us free on 0800 612 9266 or email us at info@bigartandbanners.com.

The starting price listed for cafe barriers is based on a complete set (1 x cafe banner, 2 x Posts, 2 x Cross Rails) but we also offer several kit options at reduced prices, so please select the kit most suitable to your needs. If you require more frames or customisation than we offer on our website, please contact us and we'll assist you with your needs/

Cafe Barriers FAQs

How many café barriers do I need?

As single items, our cafe barriers come in three lengths: 1.2 meters, 1.5 meters and 1.7 meters. To work out how many cafe barriers you will need measure the length of each line of the barrier area.

Why are the graphics smaller than the café barrier beams?

The banner graphics are a bit shorter than the length of the cross beams: this allows wind to pass and improves stability. The 1.2 meter cafe barrier have a 1050mm x 760mm banner, the 1.5 meter cafe barriers have a 1350mm x 760mm banner, and the 1.7 meter cafe barrier has a 1550mm x 760mm banner

How do I set up café barriers?

The café barriers have two cross beams (one at the top and one at the bottom). The fabric banner gets slid over these beams and then attached to the posts. The quick-release clips make it very easy to put the banner in place.

Will café barriers scratch my floor?

The café barrier posts have rubber bases which won’t scratch floors.

How heavy are café barrier posts?

Our posts are sturdy enough that the weight means the posts won’t tip over, even in high wind. The bases of the posts are rubber-coated, so they can be rolled away instead of picked up.

What is included with the café barriers?

Café barriers come with the suitable amount of posts, two cross beams, and banners. Any option you select has a description of what is included.

Are café barriers DDA-compliant?

Our café barriers are in compliance with DDA and local-advertising requirements.

How do I order café barriers?

You can order a café barrier directly from the product page, you can request a callback through the product page, or contact us directly.

Can you edit my artwork?

Yes, we can make amendments to your artwork. For this you will need to select one of our design services, which will allow for approx 1 hour or 2 hours design time depending on the package you choose.

Can I collect from store?

If it is convenient for you to collect or arrange collection from our factory in Manchester, you can select this option during the checkout process.

I've been using bigartandbanners for years - at least 5 years! they have never let me down. I have had massive foamex boards produced, and regular stickers and vinyls. Their pricing is very competitive, but their quality is superb. They also package everything for shipping in a very careful way to ensure it reaches you in perfect condition. I won't go anywhere else, and I suggest you don't look elsewhere either. YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!
