How to Use Your Café Barriers / Banners
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 PVC banner. Each post weighs 14.4kg 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 PVC 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 barrier and improves stability. The 1.2m meter cafe barrier have a 1005 x 838mm banner, the 1.5 meter cafe barriers have a 1305mm x 838mm banner, and the 1.8 meter cafe barrier has a 1605mm x 838mm banner.
How Many Café Barriers Do I Need?
Our cafe barriers come in three lengths: 1.2 meters, 1.5 meters and 1.8 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 360mm 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 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 email@example.com.
The price listed for cafe barriers is based on a complete set (2 posts and one graphic) but we also offer add-ons (single posts and replacement graphics) at reduced prices.

How many café barriers do I need?
Our café barriers come in three lengths: 1.2 meters, 1.5 meters and 1.8 meters. To determine how many barriers you will need, you will first need to measure the length of each line of the barrier area. The corners of the barrier area can share the same post. Keep in mind that the posts have bases which are 360mm in diameter, so you will need to make sure they aren’t interfering with tables or walking area. We recommend making a diagram of the barrier space and plotting the location of each barrier. If you need help determining how many café barriers you need, feel free to contact us.
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. For the 1.2 meter café barriers, the banner is 1005 x 838mm. For the 1.5 meter café barriers, the banner is 1305 x 838mm. For the 1.8 meter café barriers, the banner is 1605 x 838mm.
How do I set up café barriers?
The café barriers have two cross beams (one at the top and one at the bottom). The PVC 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?
We sell café barrier posts which are 14.4kg each. 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.
