Customised Barrier Belts

Custom printed belts

 

Technical Details

Standard retractable barrier belts have over 1.5 square feet of area. This is potentially prime advertising space as it is positioned in the most visited location in any public facility. In a queue you have a capture audience and you can take full advantage of it. Not only can belts be custom printed but every element of our barrier can be customised to create bold advertising, safety messages or even to blend the queue barriers in with building decor. 

Dye Sublimation

We use a dye sublimation process for printing our belts. Used for complex or multi coloured designs. Being a digital process almost anything can be printed including photographs and scanable QR codes. The ink is infused (dyed) into the fibres of the belt meaning the print, unlike screen printing will never wear off. Custom belt will enhance any queue management system.

Printing on Belt Barriers

The Advantages of Dye Sublimation

  • The print is dyed into the fabric ensuring that the images will not wear from multiple retractions.
    Unlike screen-printing which is printed on to the surface of the webbing material, dye sublimation is actually infused into the material.

 

  • The dye sublimation process is clean
    Screen printing is a fairly messy process due to the paints and screens that are used.

  • The weight of the tape is not altered. this ensures that the belt does not tilt forward after printing.
    Because screen printing effectively sits on the surface of the belt, the retractable tape tends to tilt towards the extra weight. The longer the extension, the more likely the belt will tilt.

  • Digital printing is standard with dye sublimation.
    The prints are limited when using screen printing. A separate screen is required for each colour and the more colours you have, the thicker the layered print becomes. Dye Sublimation is initially printed on to transfer media, and then set on to the material. This allows digital images such as photographic to be applied.

  • The cost of the print remains constant regardless of the number of colours you may choose.
    Screen printing requires a separate screen to be manufactured per colour. The initial set up cost far outweighs the first dye sublimation prints.

  • Pantone colours can be match precisely.
    Because the artwork is generated digitally, Pantone, CMYK and RGB colours can be matched more precisely than screen printing.

  • No variation on colour print regardless of how many you print.
    Using dye sublimated printing ensures a constant colour regardless of how many prints you require.
