Depending on the location or placement of your crowd control stanchions, they can endure a significant amount of abuse. Customers who stand in line often step on the bases, unscrew the tops, leave fingerprints on the polished finishes, and scratch the surface with their rings or shoes. Additionally, busy employees may not handle the stanchions delicately, leading to dents and more scratches. Furthermore, some stanchions may be cleaned improperly using harsh cleaners or the wrong cloth, further damaging the finish. This constant wear and tear takes its toll on the stanchions, and now you are faced with a decision based on your budget.
The first option is to replace the stanchions. This is a relatively straightforward solution as long as you know the brand and model of the stanchions you currently have or you can upgrade your entire fleet though it can become costly if you are dealing with multiple stanchions. Replacement parts such as new bases and finials can quickly add up, and you will also need to consider the mark-up from the supplier.
Alternatively, you can explore the option of stanchion repair. This may be a more viable solution if the damage is limited to light scratches or small dents. Repairing the stanchions can be more cost-effective, especially when dealing with multiple units. To pursue this route, we recommend reaching out to a local metal restoration, repair, or metal polishing shop to get a quote for the necessary repairs. They will be able to assess the extent of the damage and provide you with an estimate.
