What is a lanyard?
A lanyard is a strap worn around the neck that is often made from a polyester material. Lanyards or 'neck straps' come with a clip that can attach to different items like badge holders or badge reels. Most lanyards feature a breakaway connector that ensures the lanyard can come away freely from the neck if it becomes caught.
Lanyards are one of, if not the most popular option for carrying and displaying an ID card, access control card, membership card or name badge. Not only are they suitable for identifying staff or visitors and gaining access to areas of a building, but they are also appropriate for festivals and events when you need to distinguish security, first aid, press and so forth.
Easy and comfortable to wear, you ensure your colleagues, employees, visitors and festival and event attendees always have their ID to hand and can be easily identified by others.
