Visiontron Spotlight American Manufacturer of RETRACTA-BELT

Visiontron is a family-owned American manufacturer that has been designing crowd control products for over 50 years. While they have stock product lines like their famous RETRACTA-BELT® stanchions, their true strength is in a 40,000 sq. ft. facility full of specialized equipment and highly skilled engineers. Their team focuses on product innovation and the science of guiding people through different facilities to create custom crowd control solutions with high quality and low lead times. Visiontron prides themselves on fast production and delivery, striving for 24-hour turnaround times even on custom projects. Visiontron Corp also provides some of the best warranties in the industry and top-quality products that are always supported, easy to maintain, and often well out-live their warranty years which saves you money.

Vision tron started off in the airline industry by creating some of the first mechanical signs for flight information. Their airport display boards quickly replaced chalkboards in many airports, even though most are digital now. Those signs were proudly made in the U.S.A. just like most of their products are today. Visiontron also specializes in baggage sizers to easily determine if passenger bags meet requirements, and custom projects such as large rolling crowd control panel walls for security, privacy, and even branding opportunities. Another popular airport product is their security swing gates, which again can be fully customized. While those airport display boards turned into sign frames, sign posts, and even large Versa-Stand sign towers, Visiontron is there to help guide passengers.

In addition to baggage sizers and other airport products, which make great use of RETRACTA-BELT stanchions, Visiontron serves many other industries. The people guidance pros signs, stanchions, and panels are also prominently featured at large stadiums to smaller concession stands around the country. Their classic metal posts and crowd control ropes are perfect for movie theaters, casinos, and other red carpet events. Wall mounted retractable belt stanchions by vision tron can be found in safety worksites, retail warehouses, and any place where space is a concern. They also have magnetic wall mounts. Police, Fire, construction, and other agencies can benefit from their bike rack barricades and the innovative RETRACTA-CADE quick deployment barricade system.

Fully Compatible with Beltrac and Tensabarrier Stanchions

Visiontron stanchions use a universal belt end. This means they can be added in seamlessly to your existing queue solutions no matter what brand you currently have. We get asked all the time for prices and availability of tensa barriers as if that is the industry term. However the Tensator products, by Lawrence Metal, just have some name recognition similar to Kleenex. With all of the available options, and industry leading warranty, we are confident a Visiontron 300 series stanchion can either be matched to an existing Lawrence stanchion, or completely upgrade your tensabarrier crowd control needs. Or check their prime line for comparable Queueway stanchions.

Lavi does offer a line of stanchions with a slightly different look and connection point. However Visiontron has you covered here as well with their 280 series posts. Crowd Control Store proudly carries this American made product as well. Check out our grooved posts offering if you are looking for Lavi Beltrac stanchions comparable items.
