DDA compliant

When used with both top and bottom crossbars, our cafe barriers and screens are DDA compliant (Disability and the Equality Act 2010), the bottom rail allowing audible tap and resistance for the visually impaired. The system uses a fixed disc at the bottom to ensure the banner hangs in the correct position and acts as an anchor for the bottom rail without compromising the look and finish of the banner.

For events, the most cost effective way of using cafe barriers is to only order the top bar and fix the banner with bungees attached to the fixed disks at the bottom. This method is not recommended where there is heavy traffic, in pavement cafes or restaurant seating areas, as these usually have to comply with the DDA regulations.

  1. Choose either a rail top and bottom or rail top and bungee clip bottom
  2. Choose the quantity of posts

Step 2 - Choose your branding options

All barrier skins are digitally printed full colour, therefore there is no restriction on logo / branding size, as the entire face can be printed. For double skins, your choice of artwork can be printed to one or both sides, so the rear can be a different design. Our choice of materials enables you to select the best one for your particular requirement. The table outlines which of the following materials is suitable for single or double-sided branding.
