These classic rope barriers combine perfectly with stanchions for stylish crowd control (stanchions not included). The rope is 78" long, so when hooked between two stanchions at the recommended height from the floor (24" for safety compliance reasons) the posts will stand about 6' apart. Therefore, the relatively long length of these ropes saves you money because you won't need as many stanchions or ropes. This rope has chrome hooks on both ends that look sleek and modern. The lobster-claw style hooks make it easy for you to clip (and un-clip) them onto your stanchions. The rope barrier has a smart foam core that is wrapped in luxurious, elegant velvet that is a burgundy color. The rope has a 1.65" diameter and weighs just over 1lb, so it's easy to move around but substantial enough to effectively convey a barrier. It's amazing that these high-class rope barriers come at such a low price! They look great in clubs, theaters, banks, museums or even at red carpet events.
