Castellani Art Museum Uses Pro Stanchions to Stay Within Budget
Niagara University, Lewiston, New York
After a visit to the Castellani Art Museum on the Niagara University campus, Pro Stanchions noticed the iron posts and twine being used to rope off galleries could easily and economically be replaced with more aesthetically pleasing retractable belt museum stanchions.
After providing a sample of the equipment to be used, the museum decided to add custom printing to the belts that state "Gallery Closed".
The retractable belt stanchions the museum chose are equipped with an 11' retractable belt, allowing for fewer posts to be purchased while covering more area than any other standard economy stanchions.
The custom printing on the belts clearly conveys the message that any particular gallery is closed for viewing at the current time and provides a physical barrier for entering a gallery.
Pro Stanchions understands that museums are constantly under budgetary restraint pressures. The ability to cut costs to our clients is a direct result of minimum operating overhead and provides us the opportunity to be an asset to any organization.
