Tropical resorts are often located near the ocean, where salt water and salty air are a constant presence. This environment can be very corrosive to metals, especially those that are not specifically designed to withstand it.
Salt water contains chloride ions, which can react with the metal to form a corrosive layer. This layer can eventually cause the metal to weaken and break down. Salty air can also be corrosive, as it contains salt particles that can be carried by the wind.
For this reason, it is important to choose crowd control stanchions that are made from materials that are resistant to corrosion. Two of the best options for outdoor crowd control at locations near salt water are Tensabarrier® stainless steel marine grade retractable stanchions and Stanchion Masters® post and rope stanchions.
Tensabarrier® stanchions are made from marine grade stainless steel, which is a very corrosion-resistant material. These stanchions are also designed to be retractable, which makes them easy to store and transport.
- Stainless Steel
Stanchion Masters® post and rope stanchions are made from a combination of aluminum and rope. The aluminum is corrosion-resistant, while the rope provides a barrier that can help to prevent people from crossing a designated area.
Both Tensabarrier® stanchions and Stanchion Masters® post and rope stanchions are excellent options for outdoor crowd control at locations near salt water. They are both durable, easy to use, and effective at controlling crowds.
Here is a table that summarizes the advantages of each type of stanchion:
|Tensabarrier® stainless steel marine grade retractable stanchions||* Made from corrosion-resistant marine grade stainless steel * Retractable for easy storage and transport * Durable and long-lasting * Effective at controlling crowds|
|Stanchion Masters® post and rope stanchions||* Posts are made from corrosion-resistant aluminum or WPC * Combination of aluminum post and rope barrier * Durable and long-lasting * Effective at controlling crowds|
Ultimately, the best type of stanchion for your needs will depend on the specific requirements of your location. If you are looking for a durable and corrosion-resistant stanchion that is easy to use, then Tensabarrier® stainless steel marine grade retractable stanchions are a good option. If you are looking for a more affordable option, then Stanchion Masters® post and rope stanchions are a good choice.
Stanchion Masters® also offers all weather Tempest plastic retractable stanchions designed specifically for outdoor use and will withstand wet conditions and harsh climates. These stanchions are ideal for boats, decks, docks, beach resort areas and swimming pool areas.
