Queuing and Public Entry
Alvarado's queuing and public entry products provide inexpensive crowd control and queuing solutions. They are also highly effective tools to reduce the seriously problematic issue of shoplifting in retail stores.
For crowd control and line management purposes, our modular post and rail, turnstiles, pedestrian gates, retractable belt stanchions and portable posts and ropes can be used individually or combined to create a queue line. Our products maintain an orderly patron flow and provide organized queue lines at locations such as ticket windows, waiting areas and customer service desks.
In grocery and retail stores shoplifting is a massive problem. According to the National Association for Shoplifting Prevention, there are 550,000 shoplifting incidents and $35 million in losses on a daily basis.
Our customers are continually amazed at how effective our modular post and rail, turnstiles and pedestrian gates are at controlling product shrink. Our products channel shopper flow so that patrons are required to exit adjacent to cashier aisles or customer service areas, providing a substantial deterrence to shoplifters.

Any location that requires line management, queuing or crowd control can benefit from Alvarado’s Quick Queue line of portable, retractable belt stanchions.
Our stanchions are extremely versatile. They can be moved easily and have four-way attachment points to provide multiple directional control options.
Quick Queue retractable belt stanchions are available in several finishes and we have a wide selection of belt colors and lengths. We also offer models without bases that fit into a floor socket, and other versions that are wall-attached for closing off check stands and similar areas.
Retail stores, banks, hotels, stadiums and airports are just some of the venues where our retractable stanchions provide orderly patron flow and organized queue lines. We are confident our Quick Queue products will benefit your business as well.
Our rope stanchions and decorative ropes provide a classic queuing solution at a very affordable price. Stanchions are available in a mirror or brass plated finish. Velour and braided ropes are available in either red or black.
Alvarado’s modular posts and railing can be used to create virtually any railing configuration. Typically they are used for queuing, channeling customers, limiting access to designated store areas, material or merchandise storage, and indoor/outdoor cart corrals.
The benefits of our post and railing systems are substantial. Our posts are offered in double or triple rail combinations and our rails are available in a wide variety of lengths, so they can be easily combined and configured to meet the design requirements of any application. In addition, our simple post and rail construction allows for modifications in the field to be easily rendered, if needed.
Our rail outlets typically come pre-attached to our posts but they can also be purchased and attached separately, allowing for the creation of whatever angles might be required to accommodate a design.
Our post and rail systems are strong and durable, and because they are permanently anchored into the floor (unlike the portability of rope stanchions or retractable belt stanchions), they provide a reliability and sturdiness that are required in high traffic or high impact areas in retail environments.
Alvarado maintains an extensive, in-stock inventory of posts and rails, so they are usually available for immediate shipping. In addition, each post and rail is individually boxed, providing greater product protection and ease of handling.
Our versatile post and rail systems are a flexible and inexpensive method for channeling and queuing customers, creating indoor/outdoor shopping cart areas, and especially when integrated with Alvarado’s turnstiles and gates, can significantly reduce retail theft.
Alvarado entry turnstiles provide access and pedestrian directional control in all types of public environments. Our turnstiles are routinely employed in retail stores to provide customer entry access into the facility. Other venues which utilize our turnstiles include cafeterias, schools, libraries, theme parks, gyms, airports and malls.
When used in combination with our pedestrian gates and directional railing, Alvarado turnstiles provide an inexpensive and effective method of deterring shoplifters and controlling shrink at retail and grocery stores.
All our turnstile products are crafted from heavy duty materials to ensure longevity and to provide maximum return on your investment.
In addition, because a turnstile does not provide access for disabled people, a pedestrian gate is also typically installed near a turnstile in order to comply with ADA (American Disabilities Act) requirements.
Our Alvarado CFG gate is specifically designed for that purpose. It has a 36" passage opening and meets most disabled and building code entry requirements (always check local requirements before ordering), making it suitable for special needs access.
The CFG gate also includes a clear acrylic sign with a handicapped logo.
Alvarado pedestrian gates are routinely used in retail stores to provide shopping cart and customer access; to direct traffic flow; and to restrict areas from public use. Other facilities that consistently employ our gates include cafeterias, schools, libraries, theme parks, airports and malls.
In addition, certain Alvarado pedestrian gates are utilized to provide disabled access.
When used in combination with our entry turnstiles and directional railing, Alvarado pedestrian gates provide an inexpensive and effective method of deterring shoplifters and controlling shrink at retail and grocery store outlets.
